WAUCHULA, Fla., July 6, 2017 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Global Mission for Children, a Christian mission serving in Africa & Asia is pleased to announce the launch of their Crowdfunding site Take Care of Others
. Their listing fee is just 4% (plus normal PayPal processing fees) and 50% (2%) of the listing fee is donated directly to the mission fields which greatly differentiates them from other platforms.
GMFC was launched by James Miller and his wife Michelle in May 2012 and has spiritually and financially supported indigenous missionaries in Kenya, Bangladesh and beyond on a volunteer basis since their inception. Being a smaller ministry, they were looking for innovative ways to help others while raising much needed funds to support their mission. Hence, Take Care of Others is formed.
James Miller, the founder and webmaster states "one of the hardest things we found was to raise money in the traditional fashion, so, we birthed a crowdfunding platform unlike any other available today. It's a win-win for the Christian community knowing that 50% of the listing fee is used for the Kingdom of God." He continued "the ability to host pre-screened, moral causes is a blessing as it will directly benefit many lives worldwide. We will be promoters of the fundraisers too as their success helps us fund our dear indigenous missionaries who share the Gospel day and night."
The similarities to other popular crowdfunding platforms include hosting individuals and organizations fundraising needs online and a feature-rich back office which tracks donations, tools to share over social media, email, etc. The front end displays their fundraiser which they can share with a unique URL. They can choose the amount they want to raise, a date to end the fundraiser, etc. They also pay the owner of the fundraiser immediately as donors give (some platforms only pay when/if the fundraiser hit's it's stated financial goal).
Since it's inception in May 2012, GMFC has and continues to support indigenous missionaries around the world concentrating on Africa and Asia where they have established mission fields. They have funded and built churches, schools, orphanages, and support widows and brethren on an ongoing basis. They have recently started farms to help the communities they serve become self-sufficient all for the glory of Jesus.
