How do these gifts work?
Each gift in our guide is handpicked by our local church partners around the world to meet the real needs of their neighbours. These gifts are designed to allow children and families living in poverty to have the security, health, skills and opportunities they need to not just survive, but thrive through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
How do you use money raised through this guide?
No less than 80 per cent of funds raised will be used for program activities. No more than 20 per cent will be used for fundraising and administration. Once a need is met, the remaining funds will be used to fund other activities where the need is greatest.
