Effective Giving: Save Lives with a Giving GameSave lives without spending a penny and have a great discussion about your values! In this workshop-style event, participants are given a pool of actual money, $10 per individual, from an outside sponsor to give to several pre-selected charities. Participants engage in a moderated discussion about their values for giving and methods to use to select the charity to which they would donate that pool of money. They apply that discussion to evaluating pre-selected charities, and vote on which charity should get the money. Well-suited for a church-wide event, as well as smaller events for Covenant Groups and study groups, and in Religious Education Classes.
