Bibles for China: great need, even greater openingI can just about, i believe, imagine the reaction of the government of the People's Republic to that...)
DONATE NOW: $100 provides paper to print 100 Bibles.
One of the most fertile fields for Bible distribution is the People's Republic of China. The demand for Bibles there continues to exceed the supply. And for just $1 per Bible you can help provide the paper that will allow a Chinese Christian to have a long- awaited Bible of their own.
Ah, yes -- President Shrub and his "faith-based initiatives" -- more important to spread the Gospel even if no-one asked you to or wants you to than to send money to help US citizens devastated by a natural disaster.
Charitable donations of cash given from August 28 through December 31, 2005 may enable the donor to deduct up to 100 percent of his or her adjusted gross income for 2005. Donations by individuals need NOT be related to hurricane relief to qualify. Donations to the American Bible Society are eligible for the tax incentives.
The law, termed KETRA (Katrina Emergency Tax Relief Act of 2005), raises the maximum deduction from 50 percent to 100 percent of adjusted gross income, for qualified contributions. While this tax benefit does not fit every donor's situation, it is a major windfall for those capable of making large gifts from their accumulated estate or from extraordinary income in 2005.
We urge you to contact your financial advisor for additional information on how this law may affect your situation.
For more information on how you can take advantage of KETRA's charitable giving incentives, you may speak with a giving specialist at the American Bible Society by calling 1-800-820-6227. Or, if you prefer, you may submit an inquiry via e-mail and receive a response from the Bible Society.
Latter fifties, married, out of work (had knee surgery and haven't gotten back to work); my (step) son-in-law is back from Iraq, but a lot of boys are still over there. Support our troops -- throw the Republicans out!
