Give A Gift Of Compassion

Children in poverty don't get gifts often. But what if you could #ActForCompassion and give children in poverty the life-changing gift of goats, Bibles or water wells?

Choose A Gift

Choose a gift — change a life!

Everyone loves to give gifts! To see the look of delight as a package is unwrapped is a gift in itself.

When you give a child in poverty the gift of goats, Bibles or water wells, you are giving something that can't be tied up with a bow. You are reminding children that they are loved. Valued. And that there is more to life than the poverty they are surrounded by.

With Act for Compassion, you get to give your friends and family the opportunity to join you in changing the world for children in poverty.

Explore the fundraising options below, and give children in poverty the gift of knowing God sees them, knows them and loves them.

You can raise funds for:

GOATS

There are more than 1.2 billion people struggling to survive on just $1.25 a day. A third of those are children under the age of 12. When you give the gift of a goat, you are providing a tool to escape poverty. A goat can provide a family with an income, giving them access to medicine and school. In addition, your gift provides both training and a source of food. Every $100 raised will provide goats for one family in poverty. If you raise $1,000, you could provide goats for 10 families!

WATER WELLS

Globally, waterborne illnesses are a leading cause of death for children under 5, killing nearly 1,000 children every day. A gift of water wells means that children, and even entire communities, will have access to safe, pure water. And that means fewer days away from school and a chance at a healthy future. Every $34 provides access to a well for one family in poverty. A goal of $340 could give 10 families access to safe water!

BIBLES

Children living in poverty need Truth in the midst of the lies poverty tells them. The Truth that they are created and loved by the Father. A gift of a Bible provides them with this Truth. In addition, nearly 85 percent of people who make a decision for Christ do so between the ages of 4 and 14. By giving children Bibles, you are providing the seeds that will grow into hope and a relationship with Christ! Every $10 provides a Bible for one child living in poverty. So a goal of $500 will provide Bibles for 50 children!
