Christmas in July is an opportunity to make a BIG impact in small ways! In a time when the world as a whole is suffering, this is an easy way to make a huge difference.

 

We are in major need of small-ticket, day-to-day supplies for our commUNITY like diapers, Pediasure, clorox wipes, crayons, coloring books, Bibles, gauze, sports balls, and crutches. These seemingly basic tangibles are crucial to keep our families and programs running.

 

In Haiti we don’t have the luxury of going to Walmart or have Amazon deliver to us. What’s more, with everything shut down due to COVID, we are limited in shipping in supplies as well. This means we have to buy these usual, everyday items at a higher imported cost than would cost us normally in the US.

Whether you feel called to give $5 or $500, you will be greatly helping provide and fill tangible needs for our Haitian commUNITY in need.

 

Christmas in July “shopping” is a great way to honor a loved one, celebrate the birthday of a friend, or give up one Starbucks coffee in honor of helping provide LIFE-enhancing supplies for a child.

 

If you’re really ambitious, you can get your Christmas shopping done way in advance with gifts that give LIFE.

 

Thank you for helping us celebrate Christmas in July by keeping the love, generosity, and cheer of Christmas going all year long.

Due to wide-ranging need for different supplies, all allocated funds can/will be used to buy the most pertinent, LIFE-contingent supplies depending on need at myLIFEspeaks discretion. For example, while we need 300 boxes of crayons for LIFE Academy, if we don’t have the funds to buy coloring books/curriculum materials for children to learn with, the number of crayons we get doesn’t necessarily help. Funds will therefore be allocated to the biggest areas of need to best serve our commUNITY as a whole.
