I have some exciting news to share for The Anchor. In the spirit of this season, I am announcing our first ever Giving Campaign which we are calling “RAISE THE ANCHOR!” We are dreaming big to take The Anchor from Washington across the country to bring the hope we have in Jesus to women of all ages and backgrounds and encourage and anchor them in faith and friendship.
This season brings us together in celebration of Jesus’ birth and the exchange of gifts has been a prominent part of that tradition. Keeping in line with this practice, we are asking if you would prayerfully consider giving a special gift to our “RAISE THE ANCHOR” campaign to help us continue to bring hope to women everywhere.
Our goal is to raise $100,000 to begin funding our ultimate objective: to reach 1 million women for Jesus! We have been laying the foundation of our ministry and are ready to take it to the next level and grow The Anchor. Our passion and desire is to encourage women by bringing them HOPE, LIGHT, and JOY.
Women have huge impact in this world, on their families, in their friendships, careers and businesses and on those around them. We at The Anchor are passionate about sharing the great news of Jesus and the positive, life-changing influence faith in Him can bring. Many women today are discouraged, lonely, facing uncertainties emotionally, physically, financially and are distracted, in dark situations that seem hopeless. As we “Raise the Anchor” and the funds to grow this ministry, we will be able to impact more women with hope throughout our nation, making a difference that shines bright!
Our passion and desire is to encourage women by bringing them HOPE, LIGHT, and JOY.
Please consider a donation in any amount you feel comfortable giving.
If you make a donation of $500 or more, you will receive one of our very own navy blue Anchor glassybaby named “forever” as a reminder of a gift that has “forever” value in a life changed for eternity with the hope of Jesus. When you give a gift of $250, you will receive our classic nautical Anchor tote bag and for a donation of $100, you will receive a set of 8 notecards designed for us by Carolyn Kach from Anchored Paper Co.
And there’s more…
We also have a very generous anonymous donor who will be matching every dollar of the first $10,000 we raise! That means $20,000 towards our goal of growing the Anchor exponentially this year!
I am reminded that the greatest gift to share and celebrate this season is the INDESCRIBABLE GIFT of knowing Jesus and His amazing love. I love this Bible verse from 2 Corinthians 9:5, “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” Sharing the hope we have in Jesus and the promise of a personal relationship with Him is the best gift ever!
We are so thankful for each one of you and hope you will join us and get on board in helping to RAISE THE ANCHOR! May you be filled with joy and blessings this season.
With hope and light,
