Each gift ordered from the catalog will be matched, up to $200,000, giving dollar for dollar every time a gift is purchased. The catalog gift to teach Liberian mothers and their children lifesaving health skills delivers extra value, thanks to an additional match through a multi-million-dollar government grant.
Other giving options include bed nets to protect children from malaria, medicines to prevent HIV transmission from mothers to their children, and dental care for Oregon and Washington school children in pain.

“In this challenging economic time, this is such a cost-conscience way to shop while spreading joy to families who struggle to care for their children,” says Brenda Goldner of Oregon, who is shopping online this year. “These gifts bring positive change to difficult situations in places like Darfur, Haiti, Cambodia and right here in the Pacific Northwest.”
Colorful cards for Gifts of Hope recipients can be requested online or in the print catalog. For more information about the catalog, call 1-800-959-4325.
