ChildFund’s Gifts of Love & Hope catalog offers more than 100 items for the children and families we assist. Every one of those gifts signifies a specific need identified by ChildFund staff in that country.
Blankets to keep babies warm through chilly Uganda nights really will go to babies in Uganda.
A sewing machine to help a girl in India make a livelihood will truly help a girl in India earn income and become more self-sufficient.
A pig for a family in Mexico will absolutely go to a family in Mexico.
Of course, some catalog items are more popular with donors than others — which means that some items could use a boost in orders. Remember, these are children’s specific needs that still haven’t been fulfilled:
We want to provide 13 more soccer balls for schoolchildren in the U.S. ($35, #49675).
Children in Sri Lanka need 14 more see-saws for their play areas in our early childhood development centers ($143, #49487).
We have 20 families in the Caribbean who would benefit from starting a chicken farm — $33 for 10 chickens (#49469).
SPECIAL OFFER: To celebrate our spring 2011 issue of Gifts of Love & Hope, ChildFund will donate one mosquito net on behalf of every supporter who gives $100 or more in gifts through the catalog. These lifesaving nets protect sleeping children from mosquitoes, which can transmit malaria.
