I'm sure you've begun making your holiday shopping list. Perhaps you’re looking at the latest gadgets, and newest toys – searching for the perfect gift.
But in the past few years, you chose to give a gift that was not only thoughtful and meaningful; it also transformed the life of someone in need. You gave an ELCA Good Gift.
Because of you and many others, thousands of lives have been changed. But don’t just take my word for it. Please watch these videos and listen to the stories of Debra and Harold or Diko Marie. Because of you, they are finding their way through homelessness and poverty. They have hope.
Just think. It takes only $100 to feed 50 people at a soup kitchen in the U.S., or as little as $12 to help fund water projects in communities around the world without access to safe, clean drinking water.
With over 50 different gift-giving options, ELCA Good Gifts provides dozens of ways to grow the church, fight hunger and transform lives – all in the honor of friends and loved ones. What a perfect way to put meaning back into your holiday shopping. Will you give a gift of hope again this year?Wishing you and your loved ones peace and joy as we await the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank you for your continued support and partnership.Yours in Christ,
Christina Jackson-SkeltonExecutive Director, Mission AdvancementEvangelical Lutheran Church in America
