#GivingTuesday is back on November 27th! This day is a movement to help others through the gift of your time, donate, goods or your voice. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving! We’d love to help you get involved!
You may or may not know that we are part of CRISTA Ministries, which is made up of seven unique ministries. Our family of ministries works together to love God by serving people around the world.

World Concern works intimately with communities in some of the most neglected regions of the world. They strive to abolish the core causes of poverty and emphasize livelihood training, literacy and education. They establish beacons of hope in these communities: clean water, food, education and disaster assistance. World Concern’s expertise lies in strengthening impoverished peoples. When the poor are given opportunities—through education, small business/agricultural training programs and microloans to start small businesses—their families flourish and the entire community regains hope and stability. World Concern wants to do more than help with food and shelter. They want to give people the tools and skills to sustain their lives—and do it all with the compassion and love of Jesus Christ.
Christian Veterinary Mission (CVM) challenges, empowers and facilitates veterinarians to serve others through their profession and live out their Christian faith.
They do this by actively walking alongside Christians in the veterinary community whose desire it is to bring glory to God through their profession. Whether it’s serving tribal warriors on the African plains, herders on the mountain steppes of Mongolia or families at a veterinary clinic down the street, CVM is equipping and sending veterinary professionals around the world, and transforming people and communities through Christ’s love.
