Letter from the Editor:
Matching Mentor is part blog, part Webzine … the idea came out of a discussion between two married friends, who also happened to be “matching advisers”.
In sharing about the experience of advising their single friends and peers, they came to the conclusion that there just wasn’t enough encouragement, information and support for single Unificationists who are looking to get matched. Of course there are plenty of outside resources regarding relationship advice as well as a bombardment of dating advice websites, books and blogs… but really nothing that specifically speaks to the unification faith, and the unique experience of parent matching. Sure there is the good old reliable “Matching Handbook”… and although we value the input, love and encouragement from our parents and elders, it’s just not the same as getting advice from those who have first-handedly been through the parent-matching process themselves.
Parent matching is still in many ways a new thing in our faith. While vast improvements have been made to the overall process, there are still many things we can learn and improve upon. While the contributing writers of Matching Mentor are all young blessed (married) unificationists, we each took a unique path to our matching and blessing. We are here to share our advice and opinions… and most importantly, our stories and experiences… which will include both victories and mistakes. We hope that by sharing this, others can be able to navigate the matching process more smoothly. The goal is that once they do find that person they will love eternally, they can look back on this time with happy thoughts; looking back on it as a journey that they grew from and found happiness with.
With all that said, every week, starting the first week of July, we will post an article, touching on a paticular matching related topic. We have a group of writers, all succesfull matched and blessed young unificationists who have a unique perspective and story to share.
Our fundraising goal is small because we are keeping things minimalistic. All we are looking for a our own easy to find domain name with a good amount of storage space and the ability to design our site. With Wordpress we can do that with just 100 dollars per year!
If we reach our goal of 200, we can extend our subscription to 2 years, OR buy a nice predesigned template for our site! No creators or writers will be getting paid! This is 100% volunteer based. So any support is helpful.
We aren't looking for big donations, but unfortunately Fundly won't allow 1 dollar donations, and the lowest possible donation is 10 dollars :P But please give what you can, and/or spread the word! We want to reach out to as many people as possible and make this a great free service to our faith community (cause we love you guys !)
Thanks again for any and all support!
And make sure to keep an eye out for our official launch!
