The website that allows people to give money directly to others. Managed through a network of churches and local charities called “advocates”, the goal of the charity is to get 100 per cent of donations quickly to those in need.
Since its foundation in 2010, the national charity has increased its activity and reach to over 400 local “advocates” based around the U.K.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
