Much like the idea of filling and wrapping a shoebox to send to needy children, the Virtual Christmas Gift Box program has the church send our Free Methodist Missionaries in Bulgaria, Romania & Macedonia those funds that you would have spent, and they purchase and put together an age-appropriate gift for an orphan, street or poor kid.
WHY ARE WE DOING IT THIS WAY?
Our dollar goes farther in Europe. Most items purchased are less expensive than if purchased in America.
It helps local businesses/livelihood groups.
It saves money spent on shipping, customs, and taxes.
Our missionaries can tailor the boxes to fit the needs, and ages of the kids served.
It makes the local Free Methodist Church a hero as it is seen giving and caring for those in need.
HOW MUCH DOES A BOX COST?
Every gift will include an age-appropriate large gift, hat, and gloves, a Gospel presentation (varies depending on age) small surprise gift, and some Christmas candy. The suggested amount per child is $15.
