Eyes through Another Lense
This year at Christmas, I encourage each of you to look at giving a little differently this year. Instead of flooding you family members with beautiful gifts or spending large amounts of money on the newest "it" item, I challenge you to give a gift that will save a life, encourage a healthy lifestyle, and bring hope to someone in need.
Give a pair of shoes from TOMS Shoes to your brother so that a child who doesn't have a pair, can experience what it's like to run around outside with shoes on.
Give a goat or a blanket, in honor of your mom, to a family in need living in a third world country through World Vision.
Give money in your family's name through Blood Water Mission in order to allow people in Africa living amounst the AIDS crisis taste clean water for the first time.
Or give money in order to bring rescue and restoration to victims of slavery, sexual exploitation, and other forms of violent oppression through The International Justice Mission.
There are countless organizations out there looking for people to help, donate, and show that they want to do something in order to bring justice to our world. I encourage you to consider stepping forward to help save lives through the gifts that you give.
