On Friday, my team and I put the principles I teach into action! We spent the day volunteering with Project C.U.R.E to pack a shipping container filled with medical supplies. It is heading to four different clinics! As we were working, I started thinking about the mission of both WealthBuilders and Project C.U.R.E.
Both companies were started because they desired to make a difference in the world for the Kingdom of God. This business model is unique and deeply needed. Today, I wanted to highlight how you can use your business for the Kingdom, and impact those around the world!
How to Use Your Business for the Kingdom of God
1. Start a Non-Profit
This is one of the most direct ways to use your business for the kingdom of God. I started Tricord Global because I saw the need for financial education as well as capital in developing nations. There are so many incredible entrepreneurs, but they simply can’t get a loan. I have found that if you teach these entrepreneurs how to handle their finances instead of just giving them money without education, you make a lasting impact.
Project C.U.R.E. similarly saw a need for medical supplies in developing nations. They began shipping donated supplies overseas, and now they are the largest medical supplier for many of these countries! God is good.
If you would like to start a non-profit, I have a whole vlog talking about that which you can watch here!
2. Donate Profits
I know there are a lot of people in my audience that are passionate about their business and don’t necessarily want to start a non-profit. That is okay, you can still use your business for the Kingdom.
One way I have seen other businesses do it is donating a certain percentage of their profits. You could either run a one-time campaign on a specific product, or you could donate a percentage of your total income on a yearly basis! There are plenty of amazing faith-based organizations that need your help.
3. Donate Your Time
When we spent time at Project C.U.R.E, I was overwhelmed by the number of operations they do every day. There is so much they could use help with! Our team sorted donated items, located boxes that were needed on the shipping container, and also loaded them. The volunteers and staff there are incredible. I encourage you to look into volunteering your time, or even make a volunteer day with your employees!
We are partnering with Project C.U.R.E to raise funds in order to send two shipping containers. One will be going to Senegal, and one will be going to Nigeria. I encourage you to consider donating today! You can be apart of changing lives.
