Gifts of Love and Hope for a Bright Friday

by Virginia Sowers, ChildFund Community Manager

Spending Black Friday at the big-box store or local mall has become a post-Thanksgiving tradition for many Americans eager to get a jump-start on holiday shopping.

But it can also be a bit harried…getting up at o-dark-thirty for that special bargain in limited quantities, navigating a crowded parking lot, hurrying to be first in line.

Let me suggest a brighter alternative — shop for meaningful gifts from ChildFund’s Gifts of Love and Hope catalog. A special card will be sent in your name to the gift recipients on your list.

Just think how pleased they will be to know you took time to honor them with a gift that helps children in practical and lasting ways.

The gifts are unique, and each comes with a guarantee that the item you select will be used exactly as described in the catalog—whether that’s to improve the nutrition of young children and income for their families or to provide learning and development toys for a school.
