I love meeting these pressing needs! It is so amazing to feel like I actually know the people my gift is going to help. Without Heaven's Family, I would never have known these needs existed or had the ability to make a difference.
It's so satisfying to know that when I give to Heaven's Family, specific needs of unique individuals all over the world are being met. What a blessing to make such a difference in the lives of so many I wouldn't even know about if it wasn't for these pressing need alerts! I highly recommend giving to this ministry.
To ensure that a donation is reserved for a Pressing Need, we deduct gifts before the credit cards are processed the following business day. If a credit card is declined or was entered incorrectly, that donation amount is added back to the Pressing Need.
All projects we present are for people whom we personally know or are people being ministered to by trusted partners of Heaven’s Family.
