YOU can make a HUGE difference!


Saturday, May 30, 2015 is going to be a great day for the materially poor! Join hundreds from around the world who, walking in "kopano" (unity), are out to raise at least $100,000. 100% of that will go through PEER Servants to ten indigenous Christian microfinance partners and ultimately some of the over 150,000 clients they serve. It will provide micro-loans that enable moms and dads to grow businesses to support their families, churches, and communities. It will educate children. It will support programs that are proclaiming God's love. In short, it will extend a bit more of heaven to the materially poor, and to you as well! Please join us!

What Happens When You Walk

An initial micro-loan of less than $50 put Sohagi Mallick on the path to transforming not only her life, but of her eventual 40+ employees as well. Sohagi started a garbage recycling business in the outskirts of Kolkata, India. By accessing larger and larger amounts of credit from Christian Service Society (CSS), PEER Servants Indian partner, Sohagi grew her business. Through it she has educated her children and enabled her 40+ employees to educate their children as well. It all started with an amount less than what one typically spends on an evening at a restaurant.

If less than $50 can lead to this kind of transformation, just think what raising $100,000+ could do! Will you join us in this year's Walk to give thousands of others like Sohagi an opportunity to transform their lives and that of their families and communities?

Boston Walk or Micro Walk?

So where will you be on Saturday, May 30?  If you're in the Boston area, please plan to join us at our Boston Walk site - Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield, MA.  Registration will open at 9:30 am and the Official Walk/Run Start will be at 10:00 am.  If you're somewhere else on the planet that day, you can still have a "Micro Walk"!  It might be just a few friends or even just you, but no matter how small, you can make a difference!  That's why we're calling it the "Kopano" Walk - as we come together in unity with whatever we can give or raise and offer it up to God, He can take it and do great things to allow the materially poor to live in sufficiency and dignity.  Once you register and raise at least $200, we'll send you a Walk T-Shirt for the big day!  Thanks for joining us and making May 30 a fantastic day for the materially poor!
