Help Your Grandchildren Give to Others This Christmas with Samaritan's Purse Gift Catalog!

if you talk to your grandchildren and ask them what they would like to receive for Christmas, you would likely be hard pressed to hear they aren't dreaming of at least one gift. So, with Christmas just around the corner it is the perfect time to talk with your grandchildren about working together to raise money and select an gift from the Samaritan Purse Gift Catalog to send to a child or a family in need somewhere in the world! 

Just take a look at the catalog . . . you'll find items as inexpensive as feeding a hungry baby for a week for just $9 or for just $6 they can send a warm blanket or soft sleeping mat to a child/family who has experienced a disaster. One of my favorite gifts is the sheep/baby lambs for just $80 each! Talk with your grandchildren about the sheep which were there when Jesus was born and ask them what they could do to raise money to give a sheep as a gift so families are able to have wool and a food source just as people did in Bible times! 

While all the items in the gift catalog are things which help children and families in need, the most important thing you are giving is the opportunity for these children and families to learn of the Greatest Gift they could ever receive . . . Jesus! As Franklin Graham says, "The Christmas gift catalog is a small window to the needs of people who face difficult and often life-threatening challenges. You will find a variety of ways your gifts can make a profound difference in the lives of those who are hurting or lost."

You, and your grandchildren can celebrate Christmas by giving a gift to a child/family in need this year, so look through the gift catalog with your grandchildren and select at least one thing for them to give to a child/family in need this year!
