Self Denial Appeal 2020

Salvation Army founder William Booth always understood that God’s love was to be offered to others; that people in real despair need real hope. And real hope is released through love-filled, practical action. In 1886, Booth called Salvationists to give sacrificially, to deny themselves so that they could offer God’s love to a hurting world. So as Salvationists, we give generously to the Self Denial Appeal knowing that our sacrificial giving changes the world because love changes lives.

This Self Denial Appeal, see how The Salvation Army is helping people be the change through our programs in Papua New Guinea, Myanmar, eSwatini and Greenland.

Funds raised through the Self Denial Appeal support the mission and community development work of The Salvation Army in developing countries around the world.

The Self Denial Appeal is your opportunity to be the change in the world. This Self Denial Appeal you will see the stories of new life for people in Myanmar thanks to blood transfusions.  And support and love for people with HIV/AIDS in eSwatini. All people whose lives have been transformed through the Self Denial Appeal. It is our prayer that these stories will challenge you to see how you can show love to your neighbours in some of the world’s most vulnerable locations.

This year’s video series and devotional resource explores the theme “Love Beyond”. Jesus reached out to people at his own expense and he urges us to do the same.  In 1 John 4:12, we read, “….if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us”.

As we approach the Self Denial Appeal for 2020, please prayerfully consider a sacrificial gift. Can you give one week’s salary to effect change in the lives of the world’s most vulnerable?  

Thank you for your commitment to this valuable appeal.
