Christian Tinters 4 Life Facebook Group Announces Donation EffortsAugust 24th, 2022 by Chris Collier
The Christian Tinters 4 Life Facebook group announced a scooter raffle ahead of its group meet-up at the 21st Annual International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ (WFCT). Group founder Jody Knight, strategic market specialist and installation trainer at Maxpro Window Films, aims to use the giveaway as a springboard for difference-making.
“I was talking to a co-worker about doing something we can give back to a group or a charity,” Knight says. “I was thinking along the lines of the American Cancer Society. She then says, ‘Why not do something for what plagues our industry—drugs and alcohol?’ That hit home. Many don’t know, but I was once an alcoholic. It controlled much of my life and who I was. In 2008, I submitted my life and made a true commitment to God. I asked Him to come back in my life and help me.”
Knight collaborated with Maxpro Window Films co-worker Allison Parker and Erik Devash of Tint Wiz to develop a plan of attack. After talking with and interviewing approximately 10 different drug rehab centers, the group landed on Texas’ Agape Center-Faith Base (alcohol and drug treatment).
The faith-based group operates solely on donations. The Agape Center set up a donations tab for the raffle on their website, allowing people to donate directly to them for the scooter giveaway. Entries are $20 each, and those interested can enter as many times as they would like. Names will be entered into the drawing with each $20 donation. The entry period ends on September 13 at 10 p.m. The winner will be announced on September 16 at the Christian Tinters 4 Life meet-and-greet on the show floor between 1-2 p.m.
“If anyone who can and will, I’m asking for them to dig deep and donate to this group,” Knight says. “Not just to try and win a scooter but to give back and help the next person up. Who knows, that person could be any one of us or someone we love. Addiction doesn’t care who you are, where you come from or your age.”
