We are elated to share with you it has now been TEN YEARS since Rosary Army first went online and started offering tools and resources for the New Evangelization to the world. Since then, we’ve added several new initiatives and put them all under the banner of New Evangelizers. None of this would have been possible without you. So thank you!
If you can believe it, it has also been over THREE YEARS since we last ran a giving campaign to support our efforts. Not many non-profit organizations can make such a claim. We’re able to do so because of the monthly support of so many people like you. Unfortunately, many people who have supported us for years are no longer able to do so, and this has put an enormous strain on our apostolate.
In fact, other than the request at the bottom of our weekly emails, we haven’t asked for single dime since 2009. And while the fact we have not had to ask for money in all that time is a good thing, unfortunately we are now at a point where our bank account is nearly tapped out.
But right now, we literally need a miracle to help us continue.
In recent years, all of our costs have increased. Between skyrocketing postage and supply costs, online hosting and other services, combined with contractor and other expenses, we cannot emphasize enough how desperately we need your help right now.
For example, we have always paid all postage to send a free all-twine knotted Rosary to anyone in the world who requests one through our website. Postage alone for just one Rosary is $2.07, and that doesn’t even include packaging, printing, and other operational costs. We spend thousands of dollars a year in postage alone when sending out free tools and resources for the New Evangelization.
Another significant expense is website hosting for all of our various online initiatives (podcast hosting, multiple websites, online services, domain registrations) costs us upwards of $2,000 a year. And that doesn’t event include ongoing development costs.
Those are just a few examples where funds are very much needed right now because in less than 45-days, we will no longer have the funds to continue freely providing tools and resources for the New Evangelization, including the all-twine knotted Rosaries we’ve been giving away for over ten years.
On average, it takes us nearly $40,000 a year to maintain our operations. Without your help, by the end of August (if not sooner), our bank account will be empty. We currently have just over $2,000 available to continue paying postage, equipment, contractor fees and packing costs in our effort to distribute free resources to whomever requests one around the world.
In the past, we’ve counted on you to help.
