To help heal the hereafters of those in need, 100% of the sales proceeds of Healing Hereafter will be donated to these four well-respected and highly-rated charity organizations…
Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from economic, social, and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled adults.
I chose Compassion because of its sustainable focus on supporting individuals from early childhood into productive adulthood, because it maintains a 4 out of 4 star rating for effectiveness and responsibility from Charity Navigator, and because of our own enjoyable child sponsorship experience with them.
Bethany Christian Services is a global social services organization focused on family support and preservation, adoption, foster care, pregnancy counseling, training, refugee services, sponsorship, and infertility ministry.
I chose Bethany because it independently and collaboratively recognizes and provides for the needs of mothers and their children, because it maintains a grade A rating for effectiveness and responsibility from the American Institute of Philanthropy, and because of our own positive adoption journeys with them.
International Justice Mission is a human rights agency that aids victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression by working with local officials to secure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators, and to ensure that public justice systems effectively protect the poor.
I chose IJM because of its relatively unique specialization in legal advocacy for those who would otherwise be poorly represented, because it fights for women and families around the globe who are trafficked and abused, and because it maintains a 4 out of 4 star rating for effectiveness and responsibility from Charity Navigator.
Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad. By changing policies, programs, and conditions that allow hunger and poverty to persist, help and opportunity are provided in communities near and far.
I chose Bread for the World because unaddressed hunger and malnutrition decrease the efficacy of many other admirable forms of medical and social aid, because it embraces more comprehensive and long-term relief by influencing governmental policy, and because it maintains a 4 out of 4 star rating for effectiveness and responsibility from Charity Navigator.
