Glenn Beck’s audience raises $22m to rescue Christians stuck in Afghanistan
Money will go towards evacuating thousands of mostly women and children from Afghanistan

Konservativ radio host Glenn Beck’s listeners raised $22m in three days to help free 5,000 “enslaved Kristne” from Afghanistan.

Beck urged his audience to “give until it hurts” to fund the evacuation of thousands of mainly women and children from the country, som er now under Taliban control.

“Every single penny that you can come up with will go to flying those planes and getting those people out,” Beck said Wednesday.

“We need, obviously, an enormous amount of money. These are people that are marked for death for what they believe in.”

Encouraging people to donate to the Nazarene Fund he created, the former Fox News host said Christians faced being “crucified” by the Taliban.

Etter 24 timer, nearly $10m had been donated.

And by Friday, Beck announced the fund had surpassed $22m.

“I’m BLOWN AWAY by what this audience has done to help rescue persecuted Christians in Afghanistan! OVER $20 MILLION raised in less than 3 dager! THANK YOU!”

He later tweeted: “YOUR generosity toward rescuing Christians in Afghanistan will be a Moses-style miracle. And it has given me back my hope for the future.”
