Not this year.
|Help a malnourished child - $13|
But I'll come out and say what I really, really want to you to do this Christmas: buy something from Compassion International's gift catalog.
Compassion is a ministry I'm passionate about (more about that here), and their catalog is full of amazing gifts that you can buy for people in poverty. Here's a sample:
- Provide Garden Seeds for a Family in Africa - $10
- Give a Christmas Gift to a Mom and Her Baby - $20
- Provide a First-Time HIV Test for a Child - $25
- Give Children Access to Safe and Sanitary Bathrooms - $30
- Help Develop a Future Leader - $40
My goal is to raise $100 through this blog. That's just 10 readers giving $10 each. And here's the special part:
|Care for a baby's medical needs for a year - $55|
Giving and receiving. Giving grace, receiving mercy, giving treasures, receiving joy, giving our hearts, receiving Jesus. That is what Christmas should be about.
This works on the honor system, so please do not abuse it. Follow this link to the Compassion Catalog and buy one of the items. Then enter the contest by selecting the amount you have donated (the more you give, the more entries you get). Once we raise $100 I will randomly select a winner and you can choose your prize!
You must live within the continental United States and have a physical address to which your prize can be mailed in order to win the giveaway.
