Taking steps for the 7,413 unreached people groups.
7,413 unreached people groups are without an indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize their own people.
Perspectives USA is mobilizing the Body of Christ to co-labor with God in reaching these unreached peoples. Through Perspectives, God has transformed over 250,000 believers to respond to His invitation to engage in His global purpose of reaching these isolated peoples.
The Walk for Mobilization is an innovative walk challenge using the Charity Footprints app on your smartphone or wearable device to raise $75,000 during the month of May. Each participant raises up to $300 (or more) by walking 30 miles in 30 days (1 mile per day in May) or by an equivalent activity.
Below, you will see the virtual route we plan to walk together. We will take stops at local Spring Perspectives Classes along the way in Lakewood, WA, Minneapolis, MN, Hyannis, MA, and Spring, TX. Join us as we walk for Perspectives mobilization work to reach the unreached!
To convert your activity from minutes to steps, simply multiply the number of minutes you participated in the activity by the number indicated in the chart.
For example: 30 minutes Low-Intensity Activity x 100 steps/minute = 3,000 steps.
Your financial support will help us sustain and accelerate the momentum that Perspectives already has across the Body of Christ in the US. Specifically, your gifts provide resources for ongoing mobilization, the start of classes in new areas, new training initiatives, operation costs, and special projects. Your gifts are strategic for reaching the nations!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Charity Footprints?
Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.
Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.
What is the campaign registration fee?
This campaign is free to participate in.
However, we encourage you to donate optional/suggested amount during registration or you can always donate any amount on your fundraising page after the registration.
How can I create my fundraising page?
Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.
While registering for the campaign, select the team you'd like to join or create a new team and invite others to #GetFitGiveBack with you. If you want to join a team (or create your team) after registration, login to the campaign site and you would find a link to edit "My Team" in the menu under your profile in the header.
I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?
All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.
Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?
The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.
That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.
Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.
