What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Everyone loves a free app! But just like grace... apps don't come cheap. Can you help me make it so every kid in every country can learn for free?

So many kids WANT to learn about God: but not every parent has the means or desire to buy resources for their child. I want to make the Jesus and Holy Spirit adventures free so I need to raise the funds from somewhere else. I have invested a lot of my personal money to make this happen and now, for that final leg of the journey, I need your help. Can you help?

Right now - today even! - thousands of kids will play the first adventure on God for Kids. Many live countries of the world where the gospel is not easy to find or share - they love it and want to learn. They are also hungry for more...

Two new adventures are ready to be unlocked within God for Kids app. These adventures teach kids what the Bible says about Jesus and the Holy Spirit. They encourage children to dig deeper, chat with grown ups and ask those tricky questions. (For a detailed breakdown of what is in each adventure, tap/click here: Two New Adventures)

It was my intention to charge £2.99 for 3 of the 4 adventures, as a way to fund the costs of the app. However, I now believe it is right to make the next two adventures free, regardless of the personal cost to myself, and trust God to provide the rest of what is needed. Will you join me?

This is the reality: if an app costs money, 90% of children who would otherwise have played God for Kids app will not continue, even if they are enjoying the app and engaging and learning from it.

Please help me make this Bible resource accessible to all kids, everywhere. Thank you.

P.S.

*God for Kids has always operated as a not-for-profit and has been supported by many donations in the past from friends and family who believe in teaching kids about God in ways most accessible to them. You can download the app and read more about it here: www.Godforkidsapp.com

*All but one of the bills has already been paid for by God's provision through generous donors like yourself. The final bill to the app developer company will be £4,200 due February 2019. My writing and time is given completely for free.

    I'm still here and I'm still fundraising! Who would ever choose to fundraise over Christmas? But that's the way it's worked out and I believe God isn't limited by Christmas. The new adventures are under the final stage of testing and will be released within the next few weeks. So far, all but one of the bills have been paid for by God's provision through generous donors like yourself. The final bill to the app developer company will be £4,200 due February 2019. My writing and time is given completely for free. Thank you and keep sharing!

    The Jesus Adventure and Holy Spirit Map are going through their first round of testing and looking pretty good! In another 10 days they will be ready for the next round of testing by as many people as I can persuade to play on it! If you are good at spotting mistakes you can be a tester. Just need to subscribe to God for Kids newsletter so I can send the email to everyone with instructions and the download link. //eepurl.com/bPrlRD
