Christmas fund

Help make room for more at Christmas

Families living in poverty often find it difficult to afford the expense of celebrating holidays. You can help sponsored friends and their families around the globe fill their holiday tables by donating to the Christmas Fund.

The Christmas Fund benefits all sponsored friends and is used in many ways, including:

  • Gifts for parents to give to their children
  • Community celebrations that reflect local traditions and culture
  • Financial assistance for families to purchase clothing or other needed items
  • Food for holiday meals

Gifts are purchased within the community, which supports the local economy. Because the Christmas Fund benefits all sponsored children, youth and elders, contributions cannot be designated for specific individuals or families.
