I was praying last night/this morning and I wanted to share...
We shared at Leader Lounge last night an idea about the "Alive Arrival Bundle." As excited as I was about this we will be canceling the idea.
I felt uneasy from the Lord about it yesterday and now can see a potential problem...
Here's why we're canceling...
1. Last night only one person purchased a sweatshirt.
2. We need to sell at least 40 bundles in order for us to make enough money to overset the cost it takes to make the clothing and give the $20 from each bundle toward mentoring youth.
3. I don't think we will see 40 people spend $55 each around the holidays and if we don't then we will just be using that money to buy clothing instead of mentoring youth which is NOT AT ALL WHAT WE WANT.
We still will be focusing our giving toward the Arrival but I think that if we add the clothing into the mix it might work against our purpose.
We will possibly be doing sweatshirts in the future but it feels right to say no for right now.
