Charity Gift Catalogs: Find Christmas Gifts that Change Lives 

With less than two weeks left before Christmas, stores are expecting an influx of shoppers – especially after the recent weather trimmed down an already extra-short Christmas shopping window.

If you’re looking to avoid the holiday rush (and stress), or if you’re looking to try something different this year, consider looking through the gift catalogs of the following charities:

Buckner International

Sample Gift: Feed a Family - Some of the most fragile families in America need assistance with the basics of food. Buckner provides feeding through client assistance programs, offering free food to families in crisis. A $10 gift can help feed a family for a week.

Compassion International

Sample Gift: Safe Water for Life ($79) - Every 15 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease. Your gift of a safe water filtration system provides clean water for life for a family in poverty.

Cross International

Sample Gift: Powdered Milk ($10 feeds 100 babIes) - In developing countries, fresh milk is only available to a small percentage of the population – those who are able to milk their own cows or wealthy parents who are able to buy and refrigerate fresh milk. As a result, the poor typically miss out on milk’s many nutritional benefits. You can help fight malnutrition in children by sending this powdered whole milk to the poor who desperately need it. It’s easily shipped, needs no refrigeration, and can be safely stored for six months.

Food for the Poor

Sample Gift: Feed a Child for a Year - Your donation of $43.80 will offer a yearlong Christmas gift by providing a hungry child with “daily bread” for an entire year.

Gospel for Asia

Sample Gift: Chickens - For only $11 a pair, it’s a great way to provide a steady income for a family in Asia.

Samaritan’s Purse

Sample Gift: Vehicles & Bikes for Missionaries - A simple motorbike can help a Christian worker travel long miles between remote villages to share the Gospel and minister to those in need. In South Sudan, for example, travel is extremely difficult (less than 200 miles of paved roads run through the entire country). Your gift of $100 helps supply Christian workers with a motorbike, bicycle, or other vehicle to carry the Light of the Gospel to some of the most remote places on earth.

World Vision

Sample Gift: Education for Girls ($70) - Help a girl go to school, get an education, and overcome poverty. Your donation today can help transform the life of a girl in poverty and give her hope for the future. That's because an education gives girls the potential to earn better wages, raise healthier and more educated children, and have a voice in their community.

Wycliffe Bible Translators

Sample Gift: New Testament Audio Player in Papua New Guinea - A gift of $33 provides an individual in PNG a solar-powered audio player with the entire recorded New Testament.

If you’re also looking for some stocking stuffers, consider the Kids’ EE Gospel Cube from Evangelism Explosion International. The Kids EE Cube is a fun, interactive cube that flips and folds to reveal a clear Gospel message. It’s a fun, colorful, entertaining way for children to explore, interact and think about the Gospel. Everyone in the family will want to look at the Kids EE Cube. More importantly, the Kids EE Cube explains the Gospel to bring your children, grandchildren, and other family members into a relationship with Jesus Christ! It comes with complete instructions and is just $9.
