This Christmas, Help a Child in Kenya

Are you trying to decide what to get your loved ones for Christmas this year?  GlobalGiving is making it easy for you to give an alternative gift to everyone on your list.  

When you make a donation to one of our projects on behalf of a loved one via GlobalGiving, your loved one will receive a personalised card letting them know that they’re helping street children in Africa.  Click here to give a GlobalGiving Tribute Card.

Your gift will help change the lives of some of the most vulnerable children on Earth, like Irene, who was found begging on the streets of Kitale, Kenya, in May of this year. With help from social workers from Retrak's Kenyan partner project, Child Rescue Kenya, Irene and her family (she was living with her aunt and uncle) have reconciled and Irene is back in school and doing well.

To give your holiday gift through GlobalGiving, just go to the project page and select “Gift or In Honor Of” under the large orange donate button.

Thanks so much for your support, and have a wonderful holiday season!
