How Are We Doing?

Your response to families over the Christmas season was amazing. The Realtime church community has proven that we can band together quickly to make a difference in peoples lives using Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, and the Internet in general.

Here are two pictures of the gifts that you donated to families this Christmas. The first picture went to Eric and Amy whose family was not going to have much of a Christmas because of Amy's recent accident.

The gifts in the second picture went to Janine, whose daughter with Down's syndrome had her gifts stolen two days before Christmas.

Amazingly, you helped raise over $3200 for a swing set for Kate McRae.

Realtime church has been going for a couple months now, and you have already done amazing things. Beyond the situations above, we have helped in a renovation project and we have been a place for people to post their critical health needs. But there is so much more to do.

What can we do better?

The biggest problem that we encounter is that we have to seek out projects to work on. Not that we mind the work, but it seems that out of the thousands of hits on our site, people are afraid to post critical situations. While we are not an organization that pays bills or mows lawns, you never know how influential we can be when we all band together.

We need to develop a Realtime Church culture where people are constantly scanning their surroundings for critical situations to post?

What needs are out there?
