BACK BY (UN)POPULAR DEMAND.... SWAMP THING!

Our least desired and most avoided adventure is back on the calendar for 2019!

Swamp Thing is the backpacking trip your mama warned you about!

Trudging through the thick swamp with a heavy backpack on your back appeals only to the hardened adventurer with a drive to overcome, a mindset to embrace misery, and a passion to run into a challenge that everyone else is running away from.

So if you like taking the hard road BECAUSE it's the hard road, this may be the trip for you. If you like something BECAUSE everyone else hates it, this may be the trip for you. If you like your badge of honor with swamp water dripping from it, this may be the trip for you.

If you've got the guts to do GTD's romp in the swamp then click on the link below for more details and/or to register.

Event: Swamp Thing Backpacking Trip
Date: Jan 26-27, 2019 (Sat-Sun)
Location: Florida's Everglades
Total Distance: Approximately 8 miles round-trip
Cost: Only $23 (in celebration of GTD's 23rd year of ministry) plus food

MORE BIG NEWS!! BIG YEAR-END MATCHING DONATION CHALLENGE!


WOW, we are blessed with some of the BEST supporters and donors! We have 5 donors combining to match up to $13,000 in donations and pledges!! THAT MEANS IF WE RAISE $13,000 IN DECEMBER THEN IT WILL BECOME $26,000!!!

THAT'S A HUGE OPPORTUNITY FOR GTD!

There are 2 matching one-time donation challenges... one for up to $5000 and one for up to $2600 for a total of $7600. That means for every dollar you donate in December to GTD (whether it's $5 or $500) it will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $7600 total. In essence that $7600 gets doubled for a total donation of $15,200 to GTD!!

If that wasn't enough, we have some more donors who will combine to match all monthly-pledge donations dollar-for-dollar up to $450/mth!! That's $5400 over the course of 12 months which will be matched to double it to $10,800!

Don't underestimate how impacting a one-time donation or monthly pledge to GTD can be, especially when it will be matched by some pretty awesome donors!

AND REMEMBER >>> FREE GTD T-SHIRTS TO ALL DONORS WHO DONATE $100 or more (or PLEDGE $10/mth or more)!!!

As we chase after this $100k goal by Jan 31st we are humbled and blessed beyond measure to have the support of incredibly generous people like you!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE... OUR NOVEMBER BANQUET RESULTS ARE IN...


FANTASTIC NEWS!! $70,000 RAISED IN 30 DAYS!!!

We are jaw dropped and thankful beyond measure for the outpouring of support we've received from amazing & generous donors as GTD prepares to go into our 23rd year of ministry. We can feel the love! Our gratefulness overflows!! From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! GOD BLESS YOU GUYS!

We are thrilled about all that God is doing to launch GTD into 2019 & beyond! We celebrate His supernatural power and your thoughtful generosity =)

With $70k raised that means that we've got about 60 days to raise the remaining $30,000 to hit our $100k goal.

This is a great time to make end-of-the-year donations, beginning-of-the-year support pledges, and inquire if your company matches your donation to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.

We've already had 2 donors have their company match their donations which added a total of about $3650 to our funds raised. It's a simple & great way to double your impact!

We've got more BIG NEWS coming your way tomorrow so stay tuned! Thank you again donors!! We praise God for you!
