Contribute for Bibles to be given away to fallen and lukewarm Catholics and bring them back fervently to The Lord!
GMM is run by Peter Antonsen, a Faith Based Film Producer, Casting Director, public speaker, and Evangelist. GMM is a nonprofit in process for its 501c3 status. GMM will not receive ANY portion of this funding as we are doing this as a volunteer mission. 100% of money contributed to GMM's campaign will go to Lighthouse Catholic Media and Indiegogo for the New Testament Bibles and the crowd funding usage fees.
The more we pool our resources together here for this endeavor, the less expensive each bible will be (dropping from 5 dollars to only 2.15 per bible), and the more people in need will be gifted with God's word.
How Did this Begin?
Nicole's Story: God put it on my heart a year ago to get the four gospels into the hands of every fallen or lukewarm Catholic to bring them back fervently to Jesus. Then, Pope Francis showed the same mission as he handed out new testament pocket bibles to the crowds in St. Peters Square. Following that movement by the Pope, the USCCB starting holding contests for churches to win new testaments in bulk for their parish. We are praying that bibles will be given out in every Catholic church nationwide at Christmas and Easter Services, and even available in the back of Sunday masses for those who have not read the bible for themselves. Now we have been blessed to partner with Lighthouse Catholic Media to make this Holy Spirit led mission come to light. I pray and hope that the support will be even greater than any previous program now that it is for the Holy Bible, the sword of the spirit, the word of God!
The program started with one church last month and Nicole had the opportunity to share in providing 2500 New Testament Bibles at St. John Vianney's Easter services to people who only see the inside of a church once or twice a year. The response was overwhelming.
Nicole's previous "Bless it Forward" Campaign raised $9200 dollars on Indiegogo and another $40,000 from individuals and churches offline for tickets for the film "The Investigator" and was able to evangelize thousands of people, including teens and homeless nationwide. I pray and hope that the support will be even greater when it is for the Holy Bible, the sword of the spirit, the word of God!
Nicole Abisinio, Director of Board at GMM, has previously been responsible for millions of dollars at any given time in both her work in the financial industry as well as the film industry throughout the past 15 years.
What We Need & What You Get
We need to buy as many bibles as possible and GMM will coordinate them being handed out to as many Catholic churches possible nationwide for distribution at Christmas and Easter services (and possibly on Sundays).
If we raise at least enough for 1000 bibles for each location, they will only cost 2.16 each. With shipping, it comes out to 1.89 per bible for 1000 bibles. Finally, we include the indiegogo fees (of 14%) it totals $2.16 per bible (for 1000 bibles). The indiegogo fee drops down if we make our goal so if there is any surplus from that it will go to purchase more bibles.
There is nothing more important or valuable in this life that saving a soul-it could be your family member, your friend, or your neighbor. Even better, it could be your enemy.
Thanks to our wonderful partners and supporters on this campaign-Lighthouse Catholic Media, Movie to Movement, renowned actor Jim Coleman, Catholic singer Annie Karto, and Everlasting Memories photography, we have some exciting, enriching and heart warming perks to share with many who contribute and will have strong social media presence!
Whatever we raise will 100% be spend on bibles, S&H costs from Lighthouse, and the Indiegogo usage fees of 9% and 3-5% for credit card processing. The fee drops down by 5% if we make our goal. Any surplus from a decreased fee will be used toward more bibles.
If you look below, you can see from the cost list to see that the more we raise, the more bibles we can buy because the price goes down with higher quantities
Here is the total cost (INCLUSIVE of shipping and Indiegogo fee.)
We go from $17 total for 1 bible, down to $2.16/per bible for 1000 bibles!!!
1 Bible= $19.50
25 bibles= $94
50 bibles = $174
100 bibles= $290
250 bibles= $693
500 bibles= $1,232
1000 bibles =$2155
All of us are feeling the difference in the world as we continue to fight for our faith and for the truth of Jesus Christ. The persecution is increasing and so is the hatred in the world, on all fronts. The best way we can battle this is through love and through the word of God. The worse it gets, the more strength, love, and good deeds we need to do, with no strings attached.
Risks & Challenges
The only challenge we face is those who don't understand how life changing the word of God is and how having a bible is the most important gift we can give. Let people read and learn for themselves who Jesus is and what he did.
