The world is full of people affected by crisis and extreme poverty. Many of them need your help. But what can you do to create lasting change for people in need?
Let us show you how to collect money for people who are caught up in poverty and disasters by doing what you do best.
No matter what you do in your daily life, you can make a difference. All it takes is a computer, your creativity and a desire to lift people out of extreme poverty and give them hope when they are struck by disaster. If you have all this, you are ready.
What are you particularly good at? Networking? Knitting? Speeches? Push-ups? Use your skills to raise funds for the people you wish to help.

Advent calendar makes the Christmas gospel tangible
Mission East offers teaching material to churches all over Denmark. Presentations and games links the message of Christmas with the conditions of the poor today.
Mission East has developed an advent calendar that links the Christmas gospel to children of today living in a chaotic world where TV and social media brings people's need all the way into the nursery.
The calendar consists of a presentation for each Advent Sunday - each with inspiration for games, competitions and good conversations about what the child and it's family can do to help people in need. The topics are in line with what happened to Jesus when he was born in Bethlehem:
1st Sunday is about children feeling war
2nd Sunday is about poverty
3rd Sunday is about change
4th Sunday is about hope
The teaching material is flexible and can be used either as inspiration to the church service or be used as presentation and activities in a separated children's service.
Presentation about Mission East's work
Many associations, clubs and organisations in Denmark enjoy hearing the latest news from our work among some of the most overlooked communities and crises.
The presentation can be for your own members as well as others in your local community who are interested.
