Supporting Village2Village Children for Christmas

Written by admin on Nov 05, 2013 in - No Comments

Last week we told you about the need to pray for the children of Village2Village as they enter a very important time of taking their final exams. Please continue to pray!

This week, we all have the opportunity to bless the Village2Village children for Christmas! 

Village2Village is giving each child a high quality backpack filled with things appropriate for their age. Primary students will receive a reading book, activity books, a shirt and two pairs of socks and underwear. Secondary students will receive one or two textbooks for the coming year, a reading book, a shirt, and two pairs of socks and underwear. We hear that the children will be incredibly excited over these small gifts which is quite humbling to hear as we prepare our own lists for the upcoming Christmas season.

 

You can take part in this Christmas blessing by sending a Christmas card to the children and also by contributing towards the purchase of the items listed above. If you would like to help, send cards and donations (suggested at $45) to:

You can also contribute online through PayPal on their website at www.village2villageproject.org. If you don’t have time to send a card, you can email a letter to Sandy (sandyvillage2villageproject@gmail.com) and she will print it out on festive Christmas paper!

The deadline to send a Christmas card is November 8th so act quickly!

We are very excited to be partnering with Village2Village and we thank all of you for joining us in supporting these amazing kids!
