One of the foundational principles of Lads to Leaders (L2L) has always been to encourage everyone to do their best in all that they do - to give 100% effort no matter what it is. Whether it is a young man practicing his song leading skills, a young lady preparing a speech, or a group helping an elderly person with their yardwork, our desire is for everyone to always give 100%. God is to always get the glory for any successes, but we must each do our part to work hard and always give our best effort.
This thought prompted the idea to GIVE100! We want to encourage as many as are able to donate $100 to L2L. Some may want to give more, and some may only be able to give less. But any amount will be appreciated and used to advance the L2L program. As the end of the year approaches, we are working on plans to do more for our young people with technology updates from apps to study aids to enhanced audio/visual and technology at our conventions.
There are several ways to give to L2L:
- Text the code l2l100 to the number 50155. You will receive a reply asking how much you want to give. The next reply will have a link to a secure site to enter your credit card information. It's that simple.
- Go to our website and click the Donate link on the main menu. Complete the form on that page.
- Go to our online store and click the Donate link from the list across the top of the page. Choose the amount to give and complete the checkout process.
- Mail a check to the L2L National Service Center and denote GIVE100 in the memo field.
Another thing that we would encourage is to be a regular donor to L2L. We currently have about 12 individuals and congregations that give each month - ranging from $50 to $300 each. Through either of the first two options above, you can set up a recurring donation so that you can give automatically on a regular basis. Or, if you use a bill pay service, you can set it up to have a check mailed each month.
Whichever option you choose, know that the money will be used to make the L2L program better and stronger than ever as we strive to do what is best for our young people. Please call or email at any time if you have any questions about this or anything else related to L2L.
Thank you, and may God continue to bless all of our efforts to train up our children in the way that they should go.
