, along with The Munce Group and Munce Group member stores in conjunction with MTL Magazine
, announce the launch of the "The Message Season of Giving" website, www.theseasonofgiving.com
, where the public can submit online nominations of a person, family, or church that needs help this Christmas.
People are encouraged to go to the site
to find out more about this nationwide campaign and to submit a
nomination by simply sharing their nominee's story and why this nominee
deserves to win.
“Nominations are already coming in,” says
NavPress Sales Director Eric Helus. "We're excited that communities
across the country are rallying around their neighbors and churches who
need a helping hand. NavPress is humbled to be able to show God's love
in meaningful ways to those in need this Christmas."
In addition, NavPress will contribute a portion of the proceeds from every Message*
product sold through Munce Group member stores to the Season of Giving
Fund, which will be used to award contest winners’ prizes (two
individuals and two churches).
Online nominations will be accepted
through Nov. 15. A total of four winners will be chosen by NavPress
and notified by Dec. 10.
The contest is receiving in-store
promotion through bag stuffers and shelftalkers. NavPress is
promoting “The Message Season of Giving” in its enewsletters, on its site, and at www.theseasonofgiving.com.
The Message is
a best-selling paraphrase in the market today with over 15 million
units sold and comes highly recommended by contemporaries. Author Max
Lucado said, "Seems like forever since I've picked up a Bible that made
the stories so fresh and new. My name is on that long list of folks who
love to read The Message. What a friend this Bible has become."
No purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to submit a nomination or to win this contest.
