One of the best Christmas presents I ever received was a book on writing from my uncle. It wasn’t something I had asked for or mentioned … yet it was exactly the gift I needed.
The book was wonderful, but it was the thought behind the gift that I still treasure. My uncle knew that I was passionate about the written word, and he wanted me to know that he believed in me. He believed that I could change the world and touch hearts with my words. That has stuck with me ever since.
The gift of belief and empowerment is an incredibly special gift to give. By giving a World Help gift card, you allow your friends and family to support whatever cause they are passionate about. With gift cards, you remind the recipients that they can have an impact — no matter who they are, where they live, or what they do.
They have what it takes to make an eternal impact.
Not sure who to give a gift card to? World Help gift cards make great stocking stuffers for:
Young children or grandchildren
As we celebrate and remember the gift of Jesus Christ, a World Help gift card can be an excellent way to remind the children in your life that it is better to give than to receive. Together, you can look through the World Help Christmas Giving catalog and choose something the children find interesting.
Does your daughter love to ride her bike around the neighborhood? In many countries, bicycles are the only way people can get to work … or to the doctor. With her gift card, she can help give someone a set of wheels that will help pull him or her out of poverty.
People who have everything
For me, buying gifts for my grandparents can be difficult. They rarely ask for anything in particular, and my grandma tells me every year that they don’t need anything new.
So that’s when you have to get a little creative. The World Help Gift card can be a great solution!
It will allow your loved ones to bless someone else — something you can never have enough of.
People who are passionate about something
By giving me a book about writing, my uncle validated my passions and dreams and showed me that I could use them to help others. When you give a World Help gift card, you do the same thing!
Does your mother-in-law love to quilt or sew? She can use her gift card to invest in the business of someone living in poverty by purchasing a sewing machine.
Is someone in your life a teacher who is passionate about educating students? He or she can use a gift card to provide educational assistance, counseling, and more to girls trapped in cultural slavery.
Whatever your friends and family are passionate about, your gift will allow them to leverage that passion into something that will bring help and hope to people in need.
