At Live 30A, we want to inspire others to live a life of generosity through taking action and giving when possible. Every month, we take the initiative to find a way to give back and step into an opportunity to love, serve, give, and bless through service and giving locally in Santa Rosa Beach, and internationally through organic connections and relationships. 

With hearts of gratitude, Thank You!

One of the ways our team at @Live30A has chosen to give back and make an impact is supporting some great work being done at a Children's Home in Leon, Nicaragua called Jesus Centered Ministries, or JCM for short. 

Jesus Centered Ministries Nicaragua

It's here, that children with short and long term medical needs from all over the country find the love, support, and help they need. Specializing in children who have developmental challenges - the home over time has also become a place of full-time care and attention. Run by a lovely couple who have been serving full time in this capacity for 20+ years, we encountered this wonderful organization in 2018 on a previous mission trip to Nicaragua and fell in love. Today, we support this ministry and…

Around the world, international travel has come to nearly a screeching halt. But the needs for those in need have increased dramatically. So what can we do?

A local ministry, Twelve Churches, has come up with a creative solution by partnering with on-the-ground help in Nicaragua to supply much-needed food to families with tremendous need. 

It's a simple opportunity to make a impactful change.

100% of your $75 donation purchases enough food and basic supplies to drastically improve the food quality and basic living hygiene for a family of 4 in this time of need. 

For example: Instead of morsels of bread and ground-corn water, children can have eggs, rice, beans, fruits, and a few veggies - supplying vital nutrients to grow and develop…

When buying a home or condo on 30A, it's commonplace to make a few personal updates, repaint, or go for a full-out renovation to bring in 2020 comforts and trends. When you're getting rid of those older pieces, goods, or furniture - consider donating those items to a local Thrift Shop that's making an impact in the local community.
