Christian Crowdfunding - Your First Bible
$ 1,050.00raised of $ 100,000.00 goal
We are asking for your support of our 2019 Crowdfunding effort!
Calculating time remaining
Remember receiving your first Bible as a gift, or receiving the first scripture art print that you hung on a wall?
Do you still have them? They both were purchased at a Christian retail store.
We live in a country where the Word of God is freely available to read, purchase and give. Support your local Christian retail business, and please, support our Crowdfunding project.
It was sad when Family Christian Stores closed. I was encouraged to open our store because I was one of their customers. We believe that the Children of God/Christians need good retail options. We are new, small and growing, but still need a little help. Our vision and prayer to God is to become the 1st choice for online Christian Home Décor & Gifts in our country and abroad!
Unfortunately, faith-based businesses, even successful ones, cannot apply and get SBA loans to grow, like other small businesses.
I personally have appealed to SBA, the White House, and local State leaders to provide exceptions for Christian/Faith based businesses. Until changes occur, faith-based businesses must reach out to the faith community for support.
“Crowdfunding is a way to raise money for an individual or organization by collecting donations through family, friends, friends of friends, strangers, businesses, and more. By using social media to spread awareness, people can reach more potential donors than traditional forms of fundraising.”
