GIVE A CHRISTMAS GIFT TO A CHILD IN POVERTY

Your gift of $25 is all it takes for a child in poverty to receive a present this Christmas. For some children, this will be the first time they've ever had a special Christmas gift just for them.

For each $25 Christmas gift Compassion receives, in-country staff who know and love these children will choose a thoughtful, personalized present for each boy and girl. Charity gifts like dolls, soccer balls or toy cars. But also much needed items like new shoes, school supplies, backpacks and more. If you would like other thoughtful gift ideas, head to our gift catalog and pick something else out!

Compassion is a non profit that cares about more than just helping children in poverty gain access to basic needs. We also understand the importance of providing the opportunity to learn life skills that will help sustain their lives as they grow. Through your generous Christmas gift, some girls are given sewing kits to learn how to make and sell clothes. Others may be excited to build jewelry, learn how to code, build things, or teach things.

Consider starting a new Christmas tradition this year. Maybe this year, rethink what “gift giving” means. Maybe this Christmas, while you shop for gift cards and toys for your loved ones, consider donating a few of those dollars to brighten the life of a child in poverty. A child who might otherwise get nothing this year. Your charitable gift can show the love of Jesus to the world’s poorest children.

IT’S TRUE. YOUR GIFT DOES MAKE CHRISTMAS UNFORGETTABLE.

Meet 5-year-old Jarwin. He lives in Colombia. Even though his parents work very hard, they struggle to make enough money to feed their family. Some years at Christmas, they cannot afford to buy Jarwin a gift. But when Jarwin began attending the local Compassion program, he received a VERY special Christmas gift from someone just like you!

“I wanted to give a toy car to Jarwin for Christmas,” said Jina, Jarwin's mother. “One day, a man was selling toys on the street and I saw a nice small car, but I had no money to buy it. Then, the day of the Christmas celebration … I saw the big gift that they delivered to my boy and I shouted with emotion. Even without seeing what was inside, I thought, “That is a car for my child!” When he opened it, I realized that it was exactly the same car that he wanted, but this was a big one.”

YOUR CHRISTMAS DONATION IS MORE THAN JUST A GIFT
