Here is some suggested text you may use in your posts to introduce the campaign to your online community: 

  • Why am I a Hope Sower? I'm participating in Read for Bibles this July to raise funds to help sow the Hope of the Bible into hearts around the world. There are still millions of people worldwide who can't access a Bible because it's either unaffordable or unavailable in their language. Every $15 I raise will enable Bible Society NZ to place a Bible into another of their hands and sow the seed of Eternal Hope into their heart!
