To give! As we’re all focusing on what to get our loved ones for Christmas, families all over the world are focusing on how they will eat tomorrow or how they will get clean water for their family. You know, as a mom, my children are my first priority. I am also struck by the need to help another mother provide for her families basic needs. Worldvison.com is a wonderful website that allows YOU as a family or individual provide much needed help for a family or child in need. You can provide an alpaca or a share of an alapaca for an Peruvian or Ecuadorian family or you could help to build a well for many impoverished communities. What a great gift to give! When you purchase a gift through The Hunger Site store, every item you purchase sends at least 25 cups of food to the hungry! This site offers beautiful jewelry, clothing, pottery, and many other gifts.
Do you know someone how has everything? Like your father in law? or that aunt who seems to have too much of everything? Why not provide $325 worth of necessities to an impoverished child in New York City in their name? I hope that this year we are able to touch someone’s life in a positive manner rather than only padding the pockets of credit card companies.
While you’re at it take a few minutes and scan these websites for other great gifts that go along way to helping others.
