Global acts of terrorism, extremist rhetoric, violence, hate? What are we to do?
Every day in every location that Sports Outreach serves, we find women, men, children, youth, and families caught up in the middle of this mess that is eating at our world. It will take a long time for wise and godly leaders to address these growing threats. However, many innocent people are struggling right now. They cannot wait for these leaders. They cannot live on our compassion alone. They need our prayers and they need each of us to act.
I come to you boldly to ask for your most generous year-end gift this December to help those who are struggling and suffering. We have the opportunity of matching gifts from two of our friends totaling $60,000! This is an excellent time to double the impact of your donation. You have helped us with your prayers and financial support in the past, so you are aware of our global indigenous staff and the partners with which we work. These staff members and partners are on the front line in the slums, war-ravaged regions, impoverished schools and destitute villages where God continues to call us to serve. They know firsthand those who need our help!
I am asking for your financial support to further empower our staff to not only provide for physical needs but also spiritual. We all know that the only real hope of ending violence and terrorism is the love of Jesus Christ, not hatred, and extremist rhetoric. Please allow us to be your hands, feet, and voice to share the hope of the Gospel in some of the darkest places on earth. As we approach the end of 2015, I ask you to join with me, and the staff of Sports Outreach in providing a positive solution to the struggles we are witnessing.
What a wonderful opportunity we have been given to make a real and positive difference. Thank you in advance for stepping into the lives of the hurting, the oppressed, the abused, the neglected, “…the least of these.” I look forward to hearing from you.
Should you choose to give, you can either send in a check or credit card information or give online. For tax purposes, year-end donations for 2015 must be received or postmarked by Thursday, December 31, 2015.

Are you, or someone you know, over 70 1/2 Years Old and have an IRA?
The U.S. Congress signed the PATH Act on December 18th, so you can now roll over up to $100,000 annually from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to charities such as Sports Outreach without being federally taxed today or paying estate taxes in the future.
Heirs often receive less than 50% of IRA assets that pass through estates. Transferring money from an IRA to a charity allows the charity to benefit 100% from this donation.
For more information on the IRA Charitable Rollover and how you can take advantage of it to help children, please contact us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
