Join The Movement
For the past nine years, The Crossing has encouraged people to do Christmas differently. We [Worship Fully] the newborn King, [Spend Less] on gifts, and [Give More] relational gifts. With the money we save, we [Love All] in radical ways. For many of our families, we donate the money we saved to Living Water International to drill fresh water wells for those who desperately need clean water. These four simple tenets make up a world-wide movement called Advent Conspiracy. You can find more about [AC] at AdventConspiracy.org.
It’s More Than Water
Participating in [AC] is more than water for many families. They celebrate Christmas different. They stop going into debt. And, most important, they center their hearts on Jesus. A fresh water well in a place like Zimbabwe provides more than water. It promotes education because children can go to school instead of walking miles every day for water. It empowers women to care for their families instead of risk their safety while collecting water. It improves health and sanitation with access to clean, fresh water instead of using and consuming contaminated water.
