20/twenty was created by E3 student ministry because they wanted to make a difference in their city, where they live, where they worship, where they play and where they serve. The mission of 20/twenty is simple – sell sunglasses and leverage the proceeds to to help the homeless in Jacksonville, NC. 20/twenty exists to provide opportunities for local people to offset local poverty.
Starting in 2014, 20/twenty will be looking for partners to form a long term relationship with in order to offset poverty. Currently the monies that are raised will go to providing new beds and linens for the Onslow Community Outreach. Our goal is to help local organizations be a blessing to those in need.
So why sunglasses? Over 60% of the nations population wears sun-glasses so why not leverage a product that we all use for a greater good. 20/twenty will be offering multiple styles of glasses at different price ranges for all generations.
E3 Student Ministry introduced 20/twenty at Disciple Now weekend and raised $2,256.00!!!!!!!!!!!! The monies raised from glasses sold should allow E3 to replace all the old beds with new ones at the local shelter! Those students last weekend wanted to make a difference and they did. We will keep you posted as we get closer to giving the new beds to the shelter. We will continue to sell the glasses each week in E3 and inform you guys when the new styles arrive.
