David Nelson attributes his belief in Christ for his mission to save lives in Haiti
DALLAS, Oct. 28, 2013 /Christian Newswire/
— NFL Athlete David Nelson is encouraging sports enthusiasts and
individuals about Christ across the country to open their hearts for a
greater cause: impacting the lives of those who are less
fortunate. Nelson is leading a philanthropic effort to raise money for
orphaned kids in Haiti, through the Sudden Change Challenge via i’mME, a
non-profit Christ-based organization he established with his brothers,
Patrick and Daniel.
The goal of the Sudden Change Challenge
campaign is to spread blessings to children in need, a passion and
commitment fueled by the Nelson’s mission trips to Haiti, Ghana and
India. After months of prayer and seeking wise counsel, they launched
i’mME, an orphan care ministry, working in collaboration with Godly,
respected leaders and experienced, effective ministry partners in Haiti.
“Our main goal is to bring people from all around the country and use their love for football
to change the world for orphans in Haiti,” said David Nelson. “Not only
will they find joy in their team making a big play, but they can also
find joy in knowing that their team and pledges helped an orphan.”
The Sudden Change Challenge is being
supported by a roster of NFL Athletes who are aligned with David, his
brothers, and the spirit of giving back: CJ Spiller, Jairus Byrd, Eric
Wood, Fred Jackson, Scott Chandler (Buffalo Bills); Maurkice Pouncey
(Pittsburgh Steelers), Ahmad Black (Tampa Bay Bucs), Nate Burelson
(Detroit Lions), Louis Murphy (New York Giants), Nick Barnet (Washington Redskins) and Damian Williams (Tennessee Titans).
Consider the Sudden Change Challenge a
“Fantasy Football” game for philanthropists and givers. Football fans
from all over the United States will have the opportunity to pledge any
dollar amount for his or her favorite NFL team. At the end of each week,
the Sudden Change Challenge homepage will display which NFL teams‘ fans
have raised the most money. Registration
for the Sudden Change Challenge fundraising campaign begins September
17 and ends at the conclusion of the National Football League season.
Pledges can be made via the Sudden Change Challenge website, suddenchangechallenge.com.
There’s no donation too small, as David believes every dollar counts
toward enhancing the life of a child. For further information on i’mME,
