Reflecting on my theme for 2010: Make a Difference, I thought of While it is in the format of a Top 10 list the items are really in any order.
#9: Through Heifer International you can give a meaningful gift to give a loved one and help children and families around the world receive training and animal gifts that help them become self-reliant.#8: Make a child in your community Christmas brighter by donating a new unwrapped toy to a local Toys for Tots toy drive. You can also make an on-line donation as well.
#7: Make this holiday season special by helping a child’s dream come true. Make a Wish’s unique holiday donation options will help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
#6: Each year Angel Tree delivers love in the form of Christmas gifts and a message of hope to children of prisoners. Angel Tree Christmas connects the parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts by local church volunteers who purchase and deliver these gifts and the gospel to children. Order by Dec. 9th to ensure delivery by Christmas.
#5: Send a Gift From The Heart through Habitat for Humanity. Help a deserving family get a home of their own. The minimum donation is $10.
#4: This Christmas answer a child’s prayer by giving a sponsorship or other gift through World Vision.
#3: Compassion International offers the perfect gift alternative. Your gift will help provide clean drinking water, medical treatment, disaster relief, food supplies and much, much more for Compassion – assisted children and their families. Meet real needs and bring real joy with a Gift of Compassion.
#2: Help build schools with these ornaments and other items from Josiah and Friends. Josiah and Friends started as the result of a simple question “What can I do?” The goal of Josiah and Friends is to raise awareness and financial support for school building project through Sudan Sunrise.
#1: Build-A-Box or send another gift through Samaritan’s Purse. “Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.”
