Give gifts of goats, wells, and Indigenous language books in your loved ones’ names to projects that mend the world.
The United Church of Canada launched the new Gifts with Vision giving catalogue October 1, 2014, after three successful pilot years that raised $900,000 for more than 60 Mission and Service partners.
Gifts range from $10 to $250 and can be made in the name of friends or family members. This year’s gifts include farm animals for women’s cooperatives in Kenya, wells built by the Moravian Women’s Union in Nicaragua, books for First Nations Language Revitalization projects in British Columbia, as well as child well-being, food, and social justice programs in Canada and internationally.
Gifts are selected from a yearly call for proposals The United Church of Canada sends to its Mission and Service partners.
“Our gift-giving makes a difference in the lives of our neighbours,” says Cheryl Curtis, Mission and Service Funding Officer, “when we mark special occasions with a Gift with Vision.”
