The Well Done Awards

I'll be headed to this event tonight, should be fun. Love that book ... here's a clip from the OC Register:

Their inspiration is Matthew 25:23. "Well done, good and faithful servant!" the Scripture reads. Well done. Those words kept bouncing around in Leesa Bellesi's head.

"Why do the Snoop Doggs of the world get honored?" she asked herself. "Why not honor people who have done amazing good things?"

People like Todd Johnson, who shook his wife awake at 5 a.m. one day to announce that he had a great idea: "Let's start collecting one penny for every person who has died of AIDS in Africa and then send that money along to ease the suffering of those still alive." More than 3.4 million pennies (and one cracked garage floor) later, Got Cents has gone global.

More than 30 winners in all will get trophies engraved with Matthew's "Well done" verse.

Money from ticket sales will go to a foundation set up with the goal of eventually seeding 50,000 churches and nonprofit organizations around the globe.

It's the latest installment of the Kingdom Assignment, a phenomenon the Bellesis started seven years ago at Coast Hills.

Denny, the pastor at the time (he is now the interim teaching pastor at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena), took $10,000 of Coast Hills' money, broke it down into $100 bills and handed them out to 100 random church-goers one Sunday, asking them to go forth and help their fellow man.
