Food For The Poor’s Christmas Gift Catalog: Honor Those You Love, Remember the Poor

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Oct. 22, 2019) Food For The Poor's Christmas Gift Catalog is filled with ideas that epitomize the spirit of giving and can change the lives of the destitute poor.

In developing countries served by the charity, poor families can't afford books or school supplies. Children kick empty bottles, cans, or whatever they can scrounge up in place of a ball. They have never received a Christmas or birthday gift or any other kind of gift.

A gift of $10 can provide a soccer ball, a blessing beyond a child's wildest dreams. For $30, donors can provide school supplies in addition to the soccer ball.

The catalog also offers opportunities to give farm animals, such as chickens, pigs and goats, as gifts to provide an income and source of nutrition for poor families.

As little as $30 buys 20 baby chicks that can provide a family with a sustainable source of protein and a supplemental income from selling extra eggs.

For $90, one can give the gift of a goat that provides families with nutritious protein and a chance to break the cycle of poverty.

"Most people love to give someone they care about a thoughtful gift, but it's even more special when they know that the gift they'll choose will bring Christmas to a poor family, especially a child, who has nothing at all," said Food For The Poor Executive Director Angel Aloma. "The person receiving this gift also will feel great."

Each year, the charity seeks fresh designs for its individually handcrafted cards adorned in Haiti with die-cut pieces of banana bark. For a suggested donation of $20, donors can obtain a set of 10 All-Occasion or Christmas Banana Bark cards.

The cards give poor families an opportunity to earn an income and the means to feed their children, pay for school and clothes and change their lives.
