Dear *|FNAME|*,

Plastic Donuts by Jeff AndersonOver the past couple decades there have been a handful of "little" books that have packed a BIG punch. Books like The Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn or Don't Waste Your Life by John Piper.

I just finished reading the next "little" book that I believe will make a HUGE difference in the hearts and lives at your church. It's called Plastic Donuts: Giving That Delights the Heart of the Father by Jeff Anderson.

So many people get bogged down with the questions related to giving – how much? When? To whom? Jeff Anderson uses a sweet experience with his young daughter as a jumping off point for expressing the joy of giving and sharing his findings on what the Bible says is God’s perspective on giving.

When you're excited about something, you want to get others excited about it as well so you can share the excitement together. It's hard to do that when no one else has read the book because it hasn't gone on sale yet!

To that end, I'd like to send you a copy of Plastic Donuts in return for your help.

I want to ask you if you'd be willing to help provide a video endorsement for Plastic Donuts.

Here's how it works:

  1. We send you an advanced copy of Plastic Donuts. Your book will arrive via UPS in the next 3-5 days.
  2. You read the book. (You can start reading chapter one here and you can also listen to a podcast Q&A here).
  3. You record a 60-90 second video explaining why other pastors should pick up a copy and go through the message of Plastic Donuts with their church as a sermon series, small group study, Sunday School class, church-wide campaign, or any other kind of campaign you can think of.
  4. You email or snail mail us the rough video file or tape by June 15th (or about then) and we'll take care of editing it and posting it to YouTube, GodTube and Vimeo.

We plan to use these videos in our outreach to pastors, primarily through an email that will get sent to thousands of folks all across the United States and a landing page on that will house the videos.

We've partnered with several other bloggers and leaders in recent months, who have created videos for books such as Firsthand, Fearless, and The Gospel of Yes, and we'd love to have your involvement on this new project for Plastic Donuts!

In exchange for your video, we'll give you 10 additional free copies of Plastic Donuts to give away or use as you see fit.

If you would be interested in helping, please fill out the form here.

In Christ,
