I wanted to share some highlights from this year's catalog with you.
First, if you are like me, you may not be able to think of much you want to put on your Christmas wishlist. And if you are even more like me, you love Compassion's ministry so much. If that is you, then you will be very excited to know that the new gift catalog allows you to create a wishlist!
Now, here are some of my favorite gifts in the catalog:
1. Protect a Child from Parasites For $4, you can protect a child from parasites! It does not sound like much, but parasites steal nutrients and harm children. Your gift will help a child thrive!
2. Christmas Gift for Mom and Baby Perhaps this Christmas you would like to give a Christmas gift to a mom and baby in the Child Survival Program for just $20! It may be the first gift that they have ever gotten.
3. Replace Items Lost to Disaster Maybe as you think about all the natural disasters this year, you would like to donate to replace those necessities for Compassion children and their family. Forty dollars could provide new toiletries, clothes, school supplies, or something else for a family in need.
4. Small Business Startup If you would like to give a gift that keeps on giving, this is for you! A parent or guardian of a Compassion-assisted child can be trained in a skill that will help provide for their family for $430. You can share the gift with other like-minded people by donating $50.
5. Rescue a Child from a Dangerous Situation Poverty steals hope. Children in poverty fall victim to many evils - their rights are violated. Rescuing a child from a dangerous situation does cost a lot, but it will be a turning point in that child's life - a point where despair turns to hope, where hate turns to love, where fear turns to safety. You can share the gift for $100, or if you would like, you can rescue one child for $1045.
Please consider helping one of the funds in Compassion's Gift Catalog. It will be the most meaningful gift you can give this Christmas.
