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 no framework of what it means to give.
What if we were able to give the kids a little extra Christmas this year by giving them…the Gift of Giving? A present for them and the means for them to give a present to someone else. As simple as that.
We believe that the Gift of Giving will add value and dignity to our children’s lives, empowering them to use some of what they’ve been given to bless others. But it also will allow them to experience the joy, meaning and blessing of giving, planting a seed that we pray sows much in their lives as they learn to give back to each other and their communities.
This year we want to go a step above and beyond giving the children gifts.
We want to give them the Gift of Giving.
