Give A Gift That Gives Back
Christmastime is a season of giving, and there’s no better way to embrace the spirit of the holidays than by sharing with those in need. Many charitable organizations have developed gift-giving programs that allow you to donate to a cause dear to your heart while bringing joy to less fortunate families. Take advantage of some of these heartwarming initiatives.
Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child, an initiative by Samaritan’s Purse, collects shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items for children in need around the world. Donors can pack a shoebox online or at designated drop-off locations. These personalized gifts bring immense joy to children who may have never received a Christmas present before. The program not only spreads happiness but also promotes goodwill and solidarity on a global scale.
The Angel Tree program, run by The Salvation Army, connects donors with children of incarcerated parents. Donors choose an “angel” from a tree with a child’s name and wish list. They then purchase and deliver gifts that make Christmas a little brighter for these children, who may face emotional hardships due to their parents’ absence. Angel Tree embodies the spirit of giving by ensuring that no child feels forgotten during the holiday season.
World Vision’s Gift Catalog
World Vision’s Gift Catalog offers a unique way to give back during Christmas. Instead of traditional presents, donors can choose items like livestock, clean water, or educational resources to be donated to impoverished communities. These gifts have a lasting impact, helping families build sustainable livelihoods and improve their quality of life. Donors can even send personalized cards to their loved ones, explaining the meaningful donation made in their name.
Be a Santa to a Senior
The Be a Santa to a Senior program, organized by Home Instead Senior Care, aims to brighten the holidays for lonely or financially challenged seniors. Community members can visit participating locations, select an ornament with a senior’s name and gift request, and then return with the requested items. These thoughtful gifts provide not only material comfort but also a sense of belonging and companionship for seniors who may otherwise spend the holiday season alone.
Give Back Box
Give Back Box is a creative way to recycle while helping those in need. It allows you to reuse shipping boxes to send gently used clothing, electronics, or household items to various charitable organizations. Your donations are then distributed to individuals and families facing hardships, particularly during the holiday season. Give Back Box combines sustainability with the spirit of giving, making it easy for individuals to declutter their homes while making a positive impact on the lives of others.
During the holiday season, the power of giving shines brightly through these organizations and their generous gift-giving programs. These initiatives allow individuals to support causes close to their hearts while bringing joy and assistance to those less fortunate. By participating in such programs, we can make a difference, one gift at a time, and truly embody the spirit of Christmas.
