Gifts That Bring Hope

I know there are a lot of causes out there that ask for our help at this time of year. I chose a long time ago to help only specific causes every year, and one is Samaritan's Purse.

First, we began packing a shoebox every year for Operation Christmas Child.

Now, this year, my husband & I have agreed to give each other a gift that will actually help another family, through Samaritan's Purse Gift Catalog, and we're also doing this as gifts for a few who we know will enjoy this concept.

Choose a gift that is the amount you would normally spend on "stuff", then find something in the catalog for that amount that touches your heart and will help families in underprivledged countries. The gift will be given in the name of your friend/family.

Think of it:

a basket of chicks given to a family as a way to make money for themselves by selling eggs & chickens, plus food for themselves

medical supplies & vaccinations for Samaritan's Purse doctors to use in the field

supply a family with clean water through well-digging projects

and much more...
