Christian Charity Groups Present Life-Changing Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Food For The Poor-Mother's DayFor those who are still mulling over what to do for their mothers on Mother’s Day, there are a number of Christian charity organizations that have produced gift catalogs with ideas that will not only honor mothers but also improve the lives of poverty-stricken children and families that struggle to survive in developing countries.

“As we celebrate Mother’s Day and thank God for the influence of our mothers and wives, please remember the millions of children and mothers who have never heard of Jesus, [the One] who will provide for them,” exhorted Dr. K.P. Yohannan, President of Gospel for Asia.

This year, Gospel for Asia is encouraging people to honor their mothers by supporting a Bridge of Hope child. The ministry’s goal is to equip at least 2,000 children with education, meals, and the love of Christ by Mother’s Day.

“Mothers tend to care deeply for their children,” the ministry noted, “so what better Mother’s Day gift is there than giving a desperate mother in Asia the chance to see her child get an education, receive a regular medical check-up, have clean clothes and eat a daily meal?”

Compassion International and World Vision, similarly, are encouraging people to “honor your mom by giving hope to a mother in poverty” and to “honor and celebrate Mom, Grandma, or any loved one by giving a life-changing gift in their name.”

"A gift like career training will provide help and hope for struggling mothers and their children," suggested World Vision.

Another group, Food For The Poor, has a number of gift ideas, such as a sewing machine that could provide a poor family with the opportunity to earn income by making clothing and other textile products.

Knowing how challenging it can be to pick out the perfect Mother’s Day gift, Food For The Poor has also created a video that shows a handful of additional gift ideas in action. 

“Forget the flowers that are destined to fade, and choose to honor Mom with a heartfelt gift from the charity’s catalog,” the organization encouraged.

Other charity groups with gift catalogs include Buckner International, Samaritan’s Purse, and Wycliffe Bible Translators.
