Dignity for Christmas
Can you give the gift of dignity this Christmas season?
At Living Hope Compassion Ministries, we want families that are struggling financially to experience the same joy that other families do on Christmas morning. We want them to know the love of Jesus and have the ability to provide for their families. With your help, Living Hope Compassion Ministries will be honoring struggling families and bringing dignity to the forefront.
This year, we are asking for 1000 gifts to be donated. We will then set up a store like scenario where the gifts will be sold at bargain or garage sale prices. For example, a $50 gift will cost roughly $5. We will also have wrapping stations where the parent(s) can wrap the gifts. Living Hope Compassion Ministries believes it is important for parents to be able to give their children gifts at Christmas. The ability to provide gifts brings dignity and joy during the Christmas season.
With the funds generated from the sales of the gifts, Living Hope Compassion Ministries will also be able to employ people during the holiday season. Funds generated by the sales will be used to hire workers for the store. This model will allow financially struggling families to purchase gifts for their families, and at the same time provide additional struggling families with opportunities to work!
The event will be held at Living Hope on December 15th at 8am. This will be our second year doing Dignity For Christmas. Last year was a huge success. We believe we can be both compassionate and responsible, caring without enabling. We truly believe that to do for others what they have the capacity to do for themselves is disempowering. At Living Hope Compassion Ministries, we want to be a positive change in this community.
