Few extra notes:
1) For those new to our team - WELCOME! It is so awesome having you on board. (:
2) If you have recently increased your giving (THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!), would you mind letting us know you have by just shooting us a quick email or direct message or text (tOdd at 541.570.7135, but don't forget to include who you are in case your number isn't in my contacts)? Sometimes it might take a few weeks before it 'hits' our monthly statements and we become aware, so knowing as close to 'real time' as possible is very helpful for us for the sake of accounting, etc. due to the timeline crunch we're up against. The most efficient and easiest way to increase an already established monthly giving amount is to call 1-800-WYCLIFFE.
3) If this is the first email you've personally viewed/read with talk of these 'updates' and our current need, please consider checking your spam/junk folder in your email as previous communiques might have gone there instead (for those curious: I discovered that I needed to 'authenticate' my sending email address with MailChimp, even though I'd been using it many times before). Just FYI.
