December 31 is fast coming upon us, and many of us have very clear and certain reasons (involving nasty little inconveniences like annual taxes) to make end-of-the-year contributions to charities.   Please consider giving a gift to the Bart Ehrman Foundation.   Donations are 100% tax-deductible.    Give any amount you want or can – tens of dollars, hundreds of dollars, thousands, millions.   To pull it off, simply go to the bottom of this page, click “Donate,” and go from there.   Every penny you give goes to good causes, fighting hunger and homelessness.

Those causes may sound abstract, but in fact they are searingly concrete.   We are providing food and shelter for real people, one at a time, people who do not have enough food to eat and do not have shelter or a bed.   The needs are real, and the blog is set up to help meet them.  We have raised a lot of money in the past, and for that I am very grateful.  But we have a long way to go before we reach our potential.   Please thing about giving what you can, whether a small amount, a large amount, or an eye-popping amount.   You’ll feel good about it and we’ll feel good about it.   But more important, your gift itself will do a world of good.

May everyone have a hopeful, enjoyable, and rejuvenating holiday season!
