The voices of those you’ve helped
Hear about the impact of your gifts from the mouths and hearts of those who received them
Every year, millions of people have their desperate needs met because of Canadians like you. With the gifts you purchase through our 2013 Gift Catalog, you not only give in the name of your loved ones—you also give in the Name of Jesus Christ. For in Jesus’ words, “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40, NIV).
Below, read some of our brothers’ and sisters’ expressions of gratitude and excitement as they describe the power of your generosity.
