As with any volunteering endeavor, YAGM costs money. It costs roughly $15,000 per YAGM every year, and the ELCA only asks that each YAGM raise $5000 (any money they raise beyond that amount also helps!). This is where YOU come in! I have set up this nifty calendar where you can sponsor a day in the life of a YAGM (me!) in the UK. Here’s all you have to do:
- Go to the calendar and find a free date that you’d like to sponsor
- Go to my donation page
- Click “Donate Now”
- Enter the amount you’d like to donate:
- I’m asking for $15 to fund a day (to try to reach that $5000 goal)
- In the “Personal Note” box, enter “Fund-A-Day”, the date(s) you would like to fund, and anything you want to appear on the calendar space for the day you’ve selected and in my newsletter (a commemoration of a birthday, an anniversary, etc)
Thank you so much in advance for your support and accompaniment as I begin my preparations for my year of service.
