With This Ring was founded in 2007 and for the past eleven years we have been encouraging people to ask themselves the question, “What do I have in my hand that God might use to change the world around me? “ We saw the impact in the lives of the thirsty when we traveled to the countries we served, but we didn’t expect that learning to be truly generous with what we had been given would transform us so deeply. We have heard stories from countless women who have donated their wedding rings that their lives have never been the same and they wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s impossible not to change when we begin to care more about the needs of others than ourselves.
In 2017 we partnered with The Last Well to help them accomplish a God-sized goal: to provide clean water and the gospel to the entire country of Liberia, border to border, by the year 2020.
Our shared goal is to eliminate water scarcity in Liberia in Jesus’ name. We also know that by helping our neighbors across the globe get access to safe-drinking water and the Gospel, we are providing an opportunity for Christ-followers to be agents of change for those in the world with the greatest need.
Liberia, West Africa is a beautiful coastal country that was known for decades as the Paris of West Africa. In 1990 that all changed with the start of what became a fourteen-year civil war that ended in 2003. As a result of nearly a decade and a half of conflict, 250,000 Liberians died and the infrastructure of the entire country was decimated. Year after year, Liberia is consistently in the bottom five poorest countries and one of the top five most miserable countries in the world, according to statistics kept by organizations like the UN, the CIA, and USAID.
At With This Ring, we feel passionate about the people of Liberia. However, WTR has always made the heart of the giver a priority as well. We want to educate and inspire the world about biblical generosity and the joy of giving to “the least of these” in Jesus’ name.
