Q. How can I easily explain what Three to Abandon is to others?
A. Three to Abandon is a non-profit who's goal is to help others abandon what limits them in order to unearth and pursue God's purpose for their life. We mentor, coach and create experiences in order to make that happen!
Q. What does the name "Three to Abandon" stand for?
A. This nonprofit was created with the theory that if we abandon the THREE things that limit all humanity - doubt, insecurity and fear - we can begin to understand, unearth, pursue God's will and purpose for us.
Q. What does the cost of my experience go toward?
A. Your funds cover your lodging, any ground transportation during the experience, food, group materials, activities, and the one-on-one mentorship and group coaching you'll receive!

Q. How can I easily ask people to donate to my experience?
A. A simple statement like this goes a long way: "Hey (friend), big news: in a few months I'm participating in a 5-day trip that will help me pursue my life's purpose. It's like a spiritual retreat and life mentoring rolled into one. It's called 'The Abandon Experience' and is created by a Christian non-profit called Three to Abandon. Would you be willing to donate any amount to help cover the cost? Even something like $20 goes a long way!"

Q. What happens to my funds if for some reason I'm unable to participate?
A. No worries! You would be offered the chance to join another group within a year's time, in order to find a better date range that works for you! We'll hold whatever Abandon Experience funds you have for up to a year until you've joined that other group. Then you can finish the rest your payments for the experience if you still need to do so. If for some reason you are unable to participate or don't want to participate with any of the other group opportunities offered to you, your funds are non-refundable and will go toward helping other participants on their journey. You have two months from receiving your other group option(s) to make your decision. Under certain charitable circumstances, we may decide to donate 30% of your funds to another non-profit on your behalf! Either way, your funds still go toward a great cause.
