Sharing hope!

As Christians, we are called to share our earthly possessions. However, I don’t think this sharing should be limited to our own churches. It should be extended to others within our communities as well. However, it’s often very difficult to choose which charity to donate to. To make an informed decision concerning how your donation will be used, operating expenses of the charity, the paychecks earned by the charity’s full-time employees, and the beneficiaries of the charity must all be taken into consideration.

 What if I told you that there’s an easier way?

 Vessel Hope is a charitable organization that allows you to give anonymously, while still giving you the choice of who you want to help. If you know of a particular individual or family in your community that needs help, you can provide them the helping hand they need without them ever knowing it was you. Even better- you can rest assured that your donation is going directly to people in need!

 How does Vessel Hope work?

 When you decide that you are ready to give, you can use the website to fill out all applicable information. Then, a Visa Gift Card (loaded with the amount you determine) is mailed to the individual or family of your choice. The gift card can then be used anywhere Visa is accepted.

 What if I don’t know anyone in particular that I want to help?

 If you don’t have a particular person in mind, you can donate to Camp Boggy Creek, a special place where kids with chronic or life threatening illnesses can enjoy summer camp while still receiving the medical care that they need.

 More questions?

Hey! I would love to get together sometime when you come to Clemson. Also, how far away do you live?
