Each year we raise funds through Gift of Giving to give the kids a little extra Christmas... a present for them and the means for them to give a present to someone else. As simple as that. We've raised over $30,000 over the past 3 years and many lives have been touched and changed. We now have all FIVE of our country partners participating in Gift of Giving (yay!) so we need your support now more than ever. Our partners have taken this idea and made it their own over the past few years as they've broadened the efforts to community outreach, service projects and more.
Often times the children involved in the ministries of CTL are waiting to receive from others because that’s all they’ve ever known. They’re helpless to meet their own needs or the needs of their families. Most of us believe and have experienced that it’s far greater to give than to receive, yet many of these kids have never had a framework of what it means to give.
We have seen that Gift of Giving adds value and dignity to the children’s lives, empowering them to use some of what they’ve been given to bless others. But it also allows them to experience the joy, meaning and blessing of giving, planting seeds that we pray sow much in their lives as they learn to give back to each other and their communities.
Help us give them the Gift of Giving.
