Do you know how many eggs a chicken can lay each year? Or just how many people a digital copy of the Bible can impact? What item of clothing are most children required to have if they want to attend school in many countries?
The answers to these questions and more are found in the 2019 World Help Christmas Giving catalog. And we’ve created a fun tool your entire family can use to explore the catalog while learning a bit about the world.
Holiday shopping and charitable giving can sometimes feel like added stress during an already hectic season. But this scavenger hunt will make giving fun. It also paves the way to talk to your children or grandchildren about the realities of poverty around the world, how even small gifts can make a big impact, and how they can help rescue someone just like themselves!
So, instead of just flipping through the catalog and choosing a gift, invite your family to take part in a scavenger hunt that will reveal just how powerful something as small as a chicken or a pair of shoes can be.
Here’s how it works:
1.Download the scavenger hunt questions and read them together as a family.
2. Pull out your print copy of the 2019 World Help Gifts catalog (If you don’t have one, you can request one here.)
3. Flip through the pages and search for your answers. Bonus points if you do this while drinking hot cocoa and listening to Christmas music!
4. Discover the different ways your generosity can make a difference in someone’s life and talk about it as a family.
It’s simple and fun, and it’s an incredible way to begin a conversation about generosity during the Christmas season. But our hope is that it doesn’t stop there.
Once you show your children or grandchildren how their gifts can transform the lives of people in need, they will likely want to keep helping! Because these gifts don’t just change the lives of people in Rwanda or Guatemala or Nepal — they change our lives, too.
