It’s that time of year in the United States — with only three days left to think about your 2014 taxes — especially if you are a procrastinator like we are at our house.
It’s those days when you gather up receipts. You count your donations. And you ask yourself the question, did I give enough?
It’s the time of year you say to your spouse: “Wouldn’t you rather give our money to a charity than to pay taxes on it?”
If this is where you find yourself on this last week of 2014, then we have some great ideas for you to contribute in the most tangible of ways, at a variety of different price points.
1. Want to give less than $50? Then why not give one food and one essential care box that feeds a family of four in the US for a week?
We recently told you the story of a Georgia family where the father lost his job but because of Feed the Children the kids had food for the week! Giving this gift of $38 could mean the difference between hope and hopelessness for a family in the US.
2. Want to give less than $100? Why not give a goat that will uplift a family in a country like Malawi?
Goats in places countries like Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, countries where we work, can mean the difference between prosperity and despair. We recently told you about a woman in Malawi who received two goats and it changed the course of her kids’ lives. Your donation could bring a smile like this!
3. Want to give give a gift that is just a little bit more? Could you give $113? With this end of year donation, you could provide all the food, care and support an abandoned baby needs to thrive in Kenya.
We recently told you the story of how one baby girl in our center came to us after a terrorist attack killed her parents. She found loving caregivers and hope for adoption because of Feed the Children donors. This could be you!
If these price points don’t meet your needs– if you can give more or you could give less– here’s a link to a way you can make a donation in the amount of your choice.
Thank you donors, partners, and friends for helping Feed the Children champion kids all over the world! We believe in a world where one day hunger will end, because together we will defeat it.
