2nd Squidoo Charity Drive: Vote for CFCC

December 11, 2008 by

Back in October Squidoo did an $80,000 charity drive. They were giving away $2 per vote to nonprofit organizations, and we spread the word and raked in $800 to help churches not suck.

Now Squidoo is doing the Holiday Twitterdrive for Charity. This time around they’re giving away $1 per vote up to $30,000–but it’s limited to 21 different charities. And we’re surprised and humbled to see that the Center for Church Communication, our nonprofit parent, is one of those 21 charities.

So visit the Holiday Twitterdrive for Charity and vote for the Center for Church Communication. The voting happens through Twitter, so if you don’t have an account you’ll need to sign up.

Vote for CFCC!

It’s an easy way to raise money to help churches communicate better. Thanks for your support! (If you run a Squidoo lens did you know you can support to CFCC?)

Update: Turns out you can vote once per day! Awesome. Get out there and vote again.

    Sorry but until CMS really starts doing something and truly empowering people to communicate the gospel better I’m urging EVERYONE to vote for an American Hero. There are several groups on that list much more worthy of some spending cash than CFCC.
    Sorry but I’m just not seeing the results that would justify distracting donors from donating to causes committed to making a real and lasting difference.
    My vote goes to Cpl Sean A Stokes Legacy Project “Forget You Not” http://www.squidoo.com/Cpl-Sean-A-Stokes-USMC

    Thanks for your feedback, Sean. Glad you found a cause worth voting for and I hope others proceed the same way. There are tons of worthy causes out there to get behind—CFCC isn’t and shouldn’t be the only one.
    Regarding your comment about “truly empowering people to communicate the gospel better…” that’s all we exist for my friend! It’s THE thing that keeps me going. The stories and feedback from people who are communicating the Gospel better because of CFCC/CMS are the only reason I want to keep volunteering my time to be a part of this cause.
    Would love to hear your ideas for how we can do what we do better so that more people can be empowered to communicate the gospel better.

    Ideas have been given, they have been shared, emails exchanged, and time offered. There are several of us that have offered our thoughts, our time, our talent to you to CFCC, but we have been ignored, or worse. . . denied.
    There has been little interest shown by CFCC leadership to listen to artists, marketers, and those involved in ministry/ Those in the trenches. I am not sure why, I have a pretty good idea as to why, but for the sake of being respectful I will digress.
    I think anymore time spent would be spent more wisely by starting a new group and site that actually educates people. CFCC and CML serve to promote CMS, which doesn’t come across as really wanting to educate, but rather promote a select few has the key holders to the knowledge of church marketing.

    Not to mention that there really is much more deserving foundations on that list than CFCC.
    I’m sorry at the end of the day, church marketing is a luxury.
    I would almost be ashamed of myself to be on that list with other foundations deserving of money.

    Sean, I’m sorry you feel this way. There is no central organized leadership structure with CFCC so I am not sure who you’re referring to when you say the ideas have been ignored or denied. The whole nature of CFCC is somewhat fluid and free. It’s momentum from day one has been fueled and guided by the collective collaboration of the community, not some strategic 5-year plan backed by mysterious power-players.
    In any case, your passion to help churches communicate better is appreciated, although certainly misunderstood, at least by me.
    You’re welcome to call or email me at anytime to discuss further. I’d love to. You have my info from previous conversations we’ve had.
