Here is what www.crazylovecampaign.com says:
The Crazy Love Campaign is off to a great start, with over $570,000 given so far (exceeding our goal for Offering #1)! Offering #2 is quickly approaching, making now a great time to begin praying about what God wants your family to set aside for December 13.
As a reminder, we’re not asking for pledges as part of the Crazy Love Campaign. We are just asking that each family decide what for them is a demonstration of crazy love for God. Our proposed family goal for Offering #2 is a $500 average gift.
Crazy Love Offering #2: $750,000
Expanding our campuses to keep reaching more people: $500,000
- Hendersonville Campus – New Student Building

As Long Hollow continues to reach more and more people for Christ, we need to provide the necessary space for them on our campuses. As with Offering #1, each campus will be giving to a different project as listed below.
The Hendersonville Campus Youth Building is planned to be 46,000 square feet and will be constructed at approximately $80 per square foot. Long Hollow continues its commitment to put money into ministry and not elaborate buildings.
Complete the orphan village in Haiti for 300 orphaned and abandoned children: $200,000

If all goes as planned, our 300 rescued children will arrive there around May 1.
