Kidsermons Giving Tuesday!

Dear Kidsermons Supporters,

I am glad that you have found the website to be a useful tool for your ministry. I have maintained this website for over 20 years. Please consider making a small donation on Giving Tuesday to the nonprofit foundation that I have started here in Japan. has trained 12 new JOEE teachers and conducts lessons in a total of 6 orphanages across Japan, from Tokyo to Kobe. The children are delighted with the lessons and continue to learn English while they play and sing and dance. Joyful learning is our goal and we want to continue to expand, but we need your help. Giving Tuesday is fast approaching and we need to get the word out.

JOEE is struggling financially even as we expand; we especially need monthly donors and are actively looking for corporate donors. Please spread the word about JOEE and let your friends and family know about these upcoming giving opportunities through the Global Giving Fundraiser by clicking on and sharing the following link: JOEE at Global Giving

  • $1,000,000 available in Incentive Funds for participating projects!

Now that some teachers can enter the children’s homes and give JOEE lessons in person, we are delighted to be able to give the kids high-fives and hugs, have cozy read-aloud time and enjoy delicious snacks together. We hope to be able to continue to bring enriching lessons to children growing up in institutionalized care in Japan.

Blessings on your day and good wishes as we move into the holiday season!

Warm regards,

Ruth Ingulsrud
