Good Gifts are Fun - And So Much More!
Is your congregational unit hosting a holiday bazaar this Advent, with fair trade items and crafts and all sorts of food and fun? Maybe even an ELCA Good Gifts Fair? ELCA Good Gifts are lots of fun to give—and so much more.
We believe that God is calling us into the world— together. Together, we do more than we could ever do alone: We grow our congregations, nurture new leaders, and help people around the world lift themselves out of hunger and poverty.
And E LCA Good Gifts is a creative way to inspire more people into that life-giving work.
The E LCA Good Gifts catalog offers more than 50 different ways to honor loved ones by choosing from life-changing gifts—from alpacas to water wells—that will go on to make a difference in the world. There’s something for everyone on your Christmas list.
Among the most popular E LCA Good Gifts are animals from “God’s Global Barnyard.” Just $10 could provide a family with 10 chicks to start an egg business, or $50 could provide a goat and a steady supply of milk to drink and to sell. Your gifts to God’s Global Barnyard benefit E LCA World Hunger and help support livestock and agriculture programs all over the world.
Through E LCA Good Gifts, you can also sup- port water projects, education, and microfinance programs, as well as health care and agriculture programs around the world through E LCA World Hunger.
Audrey Novak Riley serves the church as associate program director, ELCA World Hunger. Longtime readers may remember her as a former member of this magazine’s editorial staff.
