Pay It Forward (and win Hockey Tickets!)

In the spirit of giving, I thought I’d pass on something our UW Women’s Hockey Team is participating in with Becker Law Office and invite YOU to participate as well. Here are the details:

“Pay It Forward” is the act of doing something for someone else and not expecting anything in return. We want to hear from the people in your congregation on how they would “Pay It Forward” if given $500. Each person who submits an idea will receive two free tickets to the women’s hockey game vs. Minnesota State on November 30th at 2pm. At that game, we will announce four winning entries that will receive the $500, courtesy of Becker Law Office, to make their idea happen. This contest is open to people of any age and can be done invididually or as a group. We encourage people to be as creative and as detailed as possible. This is also a great way to get people to think about helping others around the holiday season!

You can submit your ideas via (click on “contests” on the left hand column), or via mail. If you want to mail your entry, please make sure to include: Name, Address, City, State, Zip, Age, Phone, and Email. Entries can be sent to UW Athletics, Attn: Marketing, 1440 Monroe Street, Madison, WI 53711. All entries must be received by November 21, 2008. The winners will have until December 25, 2008 to make their idea happen. If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Benzine at or 608-265-5725.

    What a great way to help others and to win hockey tickets in the process! I have gone ahead and submitted my entry for the ‘Pay It Forward’ competition. I hope and pray that this 500$ will really bless someone this Christmas!

Act Local: Share gifts of time and resources with those in our community. At the Impact Tree in the Atrium, find opportunities available for individuals, families and life groups. All the information you need will be on the cards by the Tree. Take a card – put an ornament on the tree.

Give Global: On Sunday, December 13 during services, we'll take up an Advent Conspiracy offering (a direct result of spending less) to give towards clean water projects and wheelchair needs in Honduras, Kenya and Romania. If you won’t be able to join us at services on that day but still want to participate, just write "Advent" in the memo of your check and drop it in any of the offering boxes.
