Champions Clint and Korie Blacker have been supporting Desire Street since 2006. “I heard about Desire Street while on a missions trip with my church during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I had previously lived in New Orleans for a few months and fell in love with the city,” says Clint.
When we asked Clint why the Blackers want to make an impact through Desire Street, he said, “I really believe in the ministry of Desire Street. Having taught math for two years in rural Mississippi, I learned first hand what it is like for children growing up in poverty, and I hope to make a difference in whatever way I can.”
“My gift comes out of my bank account monthly,” says Clint, “and I get an e-mail right after it happens, so keeping track of my donations is easy!”
We are happy to tailor your Champion experience to your wishes. We can send your receipt by US mail or by email … or not at all! We can also send you a year-end statement of your giving by mail, email or not at all! Whatever is easiest for you, we are delighted to help, because whatever you set up with your bank to give monthly is a GREAT HELP to Desire Street and our ministry partners.
