Acts 435 Pilot launches
Posted on October 20th, 2009 at 12:13PM
Welcome to Acts 435! You're visiting a revolutionary website - it allows you to give money directly to people in need. 100% of what you give will go directly to people in need.
It's a very simple idea. There are people in our communities who need financial help, and there are people all over the country who want to help those in need. Acts 435 puts those people together.
An applicant in need applies to a local Church for help; an advocate at the church receives and verifies the request; the request for help is posted on the Acts 435 website, and you can donate to the need directly by making a payment via a secure system online.
One of the things you might notice as you visit the website is that all the applicants and advocates are from a small area - from parts of North and East Yorkshire and Middlesbrough. This is because Acts 435 has only just started, and we're running it as a pilot scheme in these areas before we roll it out across the rest of the country.
This pilot will allow us to iron out any problems and make sure everything is working perfectly before it become a national project. If you detect any problems on this website, please do let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you live outside the pilot area and would like to get involved, please do let us know! We need your help. Firstly, please do tell other people about Acts 435, and encourage them to become donors. If you'd like to know more about getting involved, or publicising Acts 435, please email us at email@example.com.
