Numbers—Annual Totals

We had an abbreviated yet enthusiastic first year collecting dimes on our Northern California District.  Things have progressed well since then.  Here are the numbers of dimes and churches in the last four years:

 

Church Year                   Churches Participating                      Number of Dimes


1)  2002-2003                               12                                                 108,000

 

2)  2003-2004                               26                                                 497,000

 

3)  2004-2005                               30                                                 683,000

 

4)  2005-2006                               43                                                 1,417,000

 

It takes “ONE dime to feed ONE person for ONE day

so there are lots of ways to think about the impact these dimes are making. 

 

For instance:

 

1)  It takes 365 dimes, or $36.50, to feed one person for an entire year

 

2)  In Year #1, 108,000 dimes fed 108,000 people for a day...

                       108,000 dimes fed 296 people for an entire year

 

3)  In Year #2, 497,000 dimes fed 497,000 people for a day...

                       497,000 dimes fed 1,362 people for an entire year

 

4)  In Year #3, 683,000 dimes fed 683,000 people for a day...

                       683,000 dimes fed 1,871 people for an entire year

 

5)  In Year #4, 1,417,000 dimes fed 1,417,000 people for a day...

                       1,417,000 dimes fed 3,882 people for an entire year
