(Picture from here.)
Over the next couple of weeks, I plan to post ideas about different oppurtunities to serve others or buy Christmas presents that either impact the less fortunate of our world or offer fare wages to those making the products. You may already have your Christmas shopping done and that is fine but this first example is a simple way to reach out to others across the world with your family or a group of friends.
This first idea is working with World Vision.
Who’s in need? 33 million people living with HIV and AIDS
Where are they? Africa, Asia, and Latin America
Who’s helping them? World Vision-trained volunteer caregivers
What can you do? Build Caregiver Kits filled with basic supplies!
Assembling Caregiver Kits is an effective, hands-on way to:
-Show Christ’s unconditional love to those suffering from AIDS
-Equip caregivers with a year’s worth of the practical materials they need
-Encourage caregivers to continue caring selflessly for their neighbors
-Draw your church closer together by serving those in need
