Monthly Subscriptions Make a Big Difference!

Here is a thought-provoking yet interesting question: how many monthly subscriptions do you personally have and pay for? Often, we subscribe to monthly services without batting an eye. Yet, have you ever thought about what difference that same amount would make in the lives of others who could never dream of subscribing to the things many of us subscribe to?

We want to challenge you to take a look at the following 20 common subscriptions (compiled and sent to us by a friend of the ministry) and the difference that same amount could make in the lives of others, and then consider matching that monthly amount in an area (or two) through a ServeNow monthly subscription. We believe it will be both eye-opening and exciting to realize the impact you can make with relatively little money! You may even want or choose to cancel a service and redirect that amount to a ServeNow subscription. Many of us subscribe to things we don’t really need or use anymore…why not channel it to something that actually is needed and makes a difference in others lives? Check it out, get your friends involved, share this article…and let’s see what creative ideas it may spark or movement it might begin!
