MA-DAGH

Madagh is a system of paying-it-forward. The word “Madagh” which literally means “sacrifice” is adapted from an Armodox tradition of thanksgiving for a goodness or kindness received. It is an opportunity for the recipient of a blessing in his/her life to acknowledge it by making a donation – monetary, physical work, time, talent – to the organization which in turn uses that donation to assist an individual or community in need. This paying-it-forward means of thanksgiving was prevalent in the early Armenian Church, since Apostolic times, and is refined today to spread faith, hope and love to a broader audience and therefore a greater number of people.
