In the communities where you serve children, so many kids have just enough — just enough food, just enough clothing, just enough to exist while their families work to create a more hopeful future or while they wait to join a loving adoptive family.
They rarely ever receive the blessing of a treat or a gift or a party.
This Christmas, will you share the peace, joy and love of the holidays with a child who has so little?
Your donation of $25 will provide a hand-chosen gift, community-wide party, day of fun, special snacks, a festive meal and more to one child!
Your gift will let a child dance and sing and play and laugh in exactly the way a child should. You can almost see the hope these parties restore for children, as well as their families.
