In the last three days, you have given $7,000 toward the $20,000 NY Faith & Justice needs to continue its work into 2009, mostly in small donations of $50 – $100! Thank you!
But the work is not finished. There is still $13,000 to go to help the work of NY Faith & Justice move forward into 2009.
NOTE: For a refresher on what got us to this point, please click here to read an archived copy of our Urgent Appeal letter, sent 12/16/08.

2. It's not too late to give!
- If everyone gives just $50, the work of NY Faith & Justice will move forward into 2009!
- Some people can give more. We need you. If that is you, please consider giving $100, $500, $1000, $5000 or more as a Christmas gift to our city. Your gift will sustain faith-based work that is bringing healthier food, cleaner air, and violence reduction to the most impoverished areas of our city.
- Organizations can still formalize their partnership with NY Faith & Justice by clicking here. Download the Organizational Partnership brochure, find out about the benefits and send your partnership gift today.
3. You can also partner with us on Facebook!
- Consider donating your "status" to NYFJ for the rest of 2008! Set your status as "[Your name here] asks you to consider donating just $50 to NY Faith & Justice right now. Go to www.nyfj.org to give."
Thanks again for your serious consideration. Please keep us in your prayers and may God bless your Christmas!
