Give a Gift that Keeps on Giving this Holiday Season

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Oct. 12, 2015) – Most are familiar with the saying, “It’s better to give than to receive.” Why not try something different and give a gift in your loved one’s honor? You can give a gift that will impact lives long after holidays have passed.

For as little as $10, you can give a soccer ball, which will ensure an orphaned child can play, have fun and get plenty of exercise. For $114, you can provide a poor family with a sewing machine, fabric and thread, giving that family a wonderful opportunity to earn an income by making and selling their creations. And for as little as $43.80, your Christmas gift will feed a hungry child for an entire year.

“Fashion and technology are constantly changing, but when you choose to give a gift to help the poor in rural communities, such as donkeys, cows, chickens or pigs, you’re giving a gift that will keep on giving. For destitute families these farm animals are a source income and nutrition and will never go out of style,” said Angel Aloma, Executive Director of Food For The Poor. “There are a number of creative gift ideas in Food For The Poor’s 2015 Christmas Gift Catalog that are the answer to many desperate prayers.”

For more than 33 years, Food For The Poor has provided the destitute with the basic necessities in life, such as food, water, and housing. The charity also is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by providing children with an opportunity to get an education by building schools, and providing micro-enterprise opportunities for adults to earn an income.

Your tax-deductible gift this holiday season will be used to further enhance these projects and is greatly appreciated. The 2015 gift catalog can be accessed through the charity’s secure website at www.FoodForThePoor.org/giftcatalog.

Food For The Poor, named by The Chronicle of Philanthropy as the largest international relief and development organization in the nation, does much more than feed millions of the hungry poor in 17 countries of the Caribbean and Latin America. This interdenominational Christian ministry provides emergency relief assistance, clean water, medicines, educational materials, homes, support for orphans and the aged, skills training and micro-enterprise development assistance, with more than 95 percent of all donations going directly to programs that help the poor.
