We are a giving family. We always have been. My kids love giving as much as they can each year. We give toys, food, money, time and more.
We just completed the best challenge for our family. We spent $30. Each child got $10 to do something special for someone who could use it.
My son paid for the food of a man at Waffle House who was homeless. He also spent the extra money on a sandwich for the guy to have later. My 10 year old got ten ones and gave money to several kids at school to buy themselves a treat. My youngest put her $10 in the tip jar at Starbucks because she said that they deserve. I think that each child made a great choice.
With the #GiveTen Generosity Challenge, ECCU is hoping to create a simple movement of people living out their faith by loving others like Christ loves us. $10 at a time. At the start of the season of giving, now is the time where offering thanks and helping others is top of mind. How would you spend $10 to do the most good for someone else? The choices are as unlimited as the blessings God provides for us.
Embrace the #GiveTen Generosity Challenge by taking $10 and spending it in the most direct and creative way to help others. Share your own stories of giving on the ECCU Facebook page for a chance to be blessed with a $500 check from ECCU to bless their own family or to continue blessing others.
For most of its 50-year history, ECCU has been known for offering churches, Christian schools and other Evangelical nonprofits and ministries with specialized financial services. ECCU continues to expand this core commercial customer focus, while rolling out additional personal financial services:
Personal savings account — a basic savings account for an emergency fund or savings for your kids that’s only $25 to open and has a 0.35% APY2 with no minimum balance.
Money Market Savings account – a great opportunity to earn a higher rate (up to 0.95% APY2 on higher balances. Perfect for your family’s savings.
Consumers can get these terms because ECCU is largely an online bank. This direct savings account — also called an online savings account — appeals to on-the-go consumers who prefer to be able to manage their lives online.
With ECCU, your money does more than earn a good interest rate for you. It helps fuel Christ-centered ministry worldwide by providing loans to churches and low-cost banking services to missionaries and Christian organizations. Together, you + ECCU = supporting and resourcing more ministry. Plus, if you open a Money Market Savings today, ECCU will donate $50 to International Princess Project to help fight human trafficking in India.

I like to do random acts of kindness often. This is a wonderful campaign!
Ten dollars is not much and can make a huge difference in someone’s life. This is a wonderful reminder.
In the big scope of things $10 is a small amount. That is like a couple cups of coffee. Giving just a little bit can go a long way!
What an awesome campaign! I try to do as many random acts of kindness as possible.
Such a nice lesson to teach your children! This could only help them later in life.
I like the way you make it fun by applying the $10 challenge.
What a great idea. I think most of us could spare $10.
It’s definitely something to consider during this giving season. People really do open their hearts up.
wonderful campaign. I often give back with random acts but never in just $10. Even a smaller gesture means a lot so I think that’s what is important
This sounds like a great generosity challenge. I try to give back as much as I can.
I like to give back and teach my kids the same. Helping others is so important and I try to do so on a regular basis.
This is a great time of year to consider the needs of others and just making the world a better place. The smallest thing can do that!
At least once a month I buy the drink or drinks of the car behind me in the Starbucks drive through. I think it is a great way to share my happiness!
This is a great time of the year to remember how little gestures can make a difference in the lives of others. Thank you for the reminder.
I am so impressed what each child did with their $10. What a great challenge that I want to share with my kids
I love the lesson on generosity. I agree your kids made good choices.
By helping others, we help ourselves. I couldn’t agree more. I buy breakfast for the person behind me all the time! Good karma.
$10 is an affordable amount! This is a wonderful campagin!
This is such a great campaig! We just took my daughter last night to give to the Angel Tree.
