I’m excited to announce a no-brainer of a partnership! If you flip to the ambition chapter of Finding Joy Beyond The Headlines, you’ll meet a man named Mike Abramowitz. I first met Mike three years ago to do a TV interview on his then-budding idea to get food to the homeless in our community.
PB&J for Tampa Bay gathers one Sunday per month to make HUNDREDS of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It’s just a bunch of volunteers who want others to be fed – physically, emotionally and spiritually. Since 2015, over 70,000 people have gotten a FREE PBJ&J sandwich from Mike and his selfless buddies. It’s a movement that uplifts and inspires…
…and now, FJBTH is helping grow this mission even more.
Starting November 2018 any copy of Finding Joy Beyond The Headlines that is purchased using the promo code ‘PB&JOY’ will accomplish two things:
1) Get free shipping on their book
2) Make a $1 donation to PB&J for Tampa Bay
One dollar is equal to four sandwiches!!! Mike has pledged to make a $1.50 donation for every book sold as well. That means $2.50 per book sold can feed ten people in Tampa Bay. Think about the impact this can make in a community of four million people!
God wants us to be ambitious. I included Mike in the Ambition chapter because I knew he was a brilliant example of Jesus’ ‘Love Thy Neighbor’ command in Matthew 22:
Matthew 22:34-40 (NIV) 34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
We are partnering with Mike and PB&J Tampa Bay to continue to love our neighbors. I pray that every book sold leads people closer to Jesus.
THIS is why FJBTH was written! To make remind everyone that there is GOOD NEWS out there and it’s closer than we think. Get your copy of the book in our shop. Use the code 'PB&JOY' to get free shipping on your order and donate $1.00 to PB&J For Tampa Bay. Let's make a difference!
