Help WorldCrafts and CWJC/CMJC Fight Poverty

CWJC
CWJC/CMJC equips women and men, in a faith-based context, for life and employment.

Job development and the provision of sustainable, living wages are at the heart of WorldCrafts’ vision to offer an income with dignity and the hope of everlasting life to every person on earth. This vision fits hand-in-glove with the mission of Christian Women’s Job Corps and Christian Men’s Job Corps (CWJC/CMJC): to equip women and men, in a faith-based context, for life and employment.

What are you willing to do to relieve impoverished people here in the US and around the world?

What if we told you that you can join the fight against poverty by simply hosting a one-month online benefit?

It’s true, you can!

How to Host a Benefit for CWJC/CMJC

You, your life group, or even your whole church can host a one-month online WorldCrafts benefit for the CWJC/CMJC site you wish to help.

Simply complete an online registration form and WorldCrafts will do the rest. Note that you need to sign up no later than the 15th of the month prior to the month you wish to host a benefit to ensure that the WorldCrafts team will have time to process your request.

In the week prior to your benefit, you will receive a link to a webpage created just for you, along with a promotion code, promotional pieces, and instructions for hosting the benefit.

During the month of your online benefit, you simply promote the benefit through social media, email, and your church or community’s promotional systems. You can invite your friends to spread the word by liking and sharing your posts on Facebook and Instagram, and retweeting on Twitter.

In the month following your benefit, we will send a check for 20% of your proceeds directly to your selected CWJC/CMJC site. You will receive an email notifying you of the total amount donated, along with fun ways to share your results on social media.

Be sure to sign up by April 15 to host a benefit in May!
