Black Friday and Cyber Monday are universally known as the official start of the Christmas shopping season. But this time of year is about so much more than exchanging ugly Christmas sweaters or the latest gadgets.
It’s about celebrating the greatest gift of all — Jesus Christ — and following in His footsteps by giving back to the very least of these around the world.
That’s why we’re inviting you to take part in #GivingTuesday on Nov. 29. This is a day defined by generosity and dedicated to making a global difference.
This year, start your holiday season by giving physical healing and spiritual hope just as our Savior did when He came to earth.

Christmas Gift Catalog
Browse our World Help Gifts catalog to give gifts of hope to some of the world’s most impoverished communities. You can provide income-generating livestock, education for a child in poverty, or clean water for an entire community.
You will even find merchandise you can purchase to provide an artisan in a developing country with the money needed to buy food, clothing, and supplies for his family.
For many families in the Middle East, this will be their third Christmas living as refugees. And thousands more are fleeing their homes each day … especially as the battle to take back Mosul from ISIS rages on.
You can give these families hope by meeting their most vital needs such as food and blankets this holiday season. Your gifts will also provide long-term sustainable solutions such as education, job opportunities, trauma rehabilitation, and spiritual counseling to help refugees get back on their feet and begin to rebuild their lives.
Where Needed Most
Still not sure how you want to give this Giving Tuesday? When you give to Where Needed Most, you ensure that we can meet urgent needs such as emergency medical aid or disaster relief as soon as they arise.
You can also browse our other programs such as church planting and Bible distribution.
In addition to giving financially, you can also make an impact by using your voice to tell others about Giving Tuesday. Celebrate with your family and friends this Christmas season by spreading the gift of hope together. Just imagine how many lives you can change!Share
