The United States is the most generous nation on Earth again this year. According to CNBC, a higher proportion of Americans helped a stranger than any other country in the world. The 2013 World Giving Index measures three statistics each month: giving money, volunteering time, and helping strangers. America had fallen to fifth place last year but bounced back in 2013.
That first place score would have been even higher if more Americans knew about healthcare sharing ministries ("healthshares"). Right now, almost two hundred thousand Americans choose a stranger to support financially each month. That's how a healthshare works--you commit to contribute a certain amount and decide which needy person gets your money. It's helping strangers in their need; strangers who are pledged to help you when you're in trouble.
Help us spread the word about healthshares and who knows how high America could score on next year's giving index!
