VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS GIFT BOX

 

 

HELPING NEEDY KIDS HAVE A CHRIST-FILLED CHRISTMAS

(Collection Period - November 1 - 22)

A SIMPLE IDEA...WITH A TWIST

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.
