It is hard to believe the holiday season is upon us. As we celebrate Thanksgiving, we will gather together to give thanks to the Lord for all He has provided and to count our blessings. The next day many of you may head out during the wee hours of the morning to find the best deals so you can bless your friends and family. This is known as “Black Friday.” Maybe you don’t want to fight the crowds, so “Cyber Monday” is your day, the day you order all of your Christmas gifts online. Being a blessing to those we love is such a privilege we enjoy and share.
After these wonderful days filled with anticipation of giving to our loved ones, there is another day of giving, but this one looks a little different. This is a day for us to give to the least of these. Giving Tuesday. Tuesday, December 3, is a nationally recognized day where Americans link arms with charitable organizations and give to those in need. World Orphans is excited to be part of Giving Tuesday for the first time this year, and we are asking you, our friends, to consider a gift to World Orphans as we seek to be the hands and feet of Christ.
We are anticipating an exciting day! We look forward to sharing it with you and to what we’ll be able to do for our brothers and sisters around the world because of Giving Tuesday.
In the meantime, you can help us to spread the word! Will you tell your friends and family about World Orphans? Will you share with them how we are partnering with local churches around the world to see orphans and vulnerable children cared for in families? Would you join us in encouraging friends toward a season of generosity? God has been so good to us and has accomplished much through the ministry of World Orphans. It is our privilege to be His hands and feet to the least of the least, and we are grateful for your partnership.
