Are you looking for a way to incorporate the Compassion Gift Catalog into your Christmas?
I kind of threw this together and have a few more ideas of expanding it, but I wanted to share this with all of you now.
Here is what you need to get started:
- Compassion's Gift Catalog (either a physical copy or access it online)
- Empty jar
- Dollar bills and coins
- Small clothespins
- Twelve Days of Compassion Christmas printable
- Twelve Days of Compassion Christmas printable ornaments
Once you have gathered all of the supplies, cut out the small ornaments. Attach them to your Christmas tree with the clothespins or create a banner with them somewhere in your home where everyone in your family can see them.
Pick twelve days in December. Mark these on your calendar.
On each of these twelve days, read the fact from the Twelve Days of Compassion Christmas printable, look up the item in the gift catalog, have some discussion, and put the money you collected for each day in your jar.
After you have completed the tasks for all twelve days, add up how much money is in your jar. Select an item from Compassion's Gift Catalog. You can place your order online, by mail (if you have a physical copy of the catalog), or by phone.
Your gift will help a child growing up in extreme poverty!
This may be the best gift your family has ever purchased!
If you give this a try or have some feedback, let you know!
