Each alternative gift comes with a card explaining the mission being supported and allows you to add a personal message for the recipient. You will find unique and meaningful presents for loved ones, and you can easily solve your gift-giving dilemmas while supporting our hard-working local and global ministries such as Ministry of Hope, Friends in Deed, La Casa de San Gabriel, African Team Ministries, and Covenant Children's Homes. Your participation is a win-win-win!

In 2020 we raised over $7,000 for these causes, and these ministries need our support more than ever in this year of global crisis.
