On the Fourth Day of Gifts for Gracias . . .

For 12 days, I will be writing about the different ways people have participated in the Gifts for Gracias Project over the years. Today is the fourth day. If you are unfamiliar with Gifts for Gracias, or would like to see an overview of how it works, click here for more info.

The Fourth Day of Gifts for Gracias: Donate cash

Yes, I know - sending money is NOT as much fun as putting together a gift box, or even ordering items online to send to us. It's true. However, we don't ask for people to give a donation with each gift (as some similar gift-box ministries do), so we are paying to ship the container of donations to Honduras, at a cost of several thousand dollars, out of our general ministry funds. When people donate money to help cover that expense, we're delighted to get it!

Also, there are certain items which we want to be certain to have enough of, so that we can give one to every family which receives a gift. To ensure this, we purchase, in bulk, a large quantity of certain items, including backpacks and soccer balls. Donations to defray this expense are always welcome!

If you'd like to be a part of the Gifts for Gracias project in this way, the information you need to know is just below! Thanks so much!
