Throughout the year, the Thrivent Member Network–Southeast Region hosts several events across the region, giving members an opportunity to come together, learn and share what it means to be wise with money and live their lives more generously. Looking forward, our hope is to foster greater connection among our members by sharing stories of how you are making a difference in the lives of others. We’ll also continue to find ways to learn what matters to you—what activities you want to be involved in and how you’d like us to connect with you.
Giving Tuesday 2019 was a roaring success! Members across the region were invited to participate online and at select event locations in Florida and Georgia. We partnered with two non-profit organizations that are a part of our Thrivent Member Network-Southeast Region: Inspiritus (formerly Lutheran Services of Georgia) and Eckerd Connects. In total, $25,675 was raised online and in person, and Thrivent matched $1 for every $2 raised. A grand total of $38,513 in total impact was made on one single day.
NASCAR driver, Corey LaJoie, and his wife Kelly have always had a passion for bringing shoes to children in need. LaJoie mentioned this to his Thrivent Financial professional, Lucas Beatty, and he made the connection to Samaritan’s Feet. He decided to give up one month’s salary to pay for his car to be wrapped in a Samaritan’s Feet car wrap for the Cup race at Watkins Glen International in August. LaJoie raised money online through his personal Hope Givers page with the names of each donor being written on his car regardless of the amount donated. He expected to raise between $15,000 - $20,000. Instead, more than 1,700 donors have contributed an average of $113 to reach over $200,000. “I've felt God pull at my heartstrings with this project, and there is absolutely no better fit being that my longtime racing nickname is ‘SuperShoe.’ Now being a ‘SuperShoe’ is being a part of something bigger than myself to bring the gift of a new pair of shoes as well as the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ to all the ends of the earth through Samaritan’s Feet.
