Americans are estimated to spend close to $600 BILLION dollars during this holiday season - WHAT IF WE ALL GAVE A TITHE (ten percent) OF WHAT WE PLAN TO SPEND AT CHRISTMAS and directed it to BLESS ORPHANS????
Treasures of Africa Children's Home is trying to raise money for a CHRISTMAS FUND for the kids at TOA. In Tanzania - it is not the tradition to give out lots of material gifts at Christmas - but in families that can afford it - each child is given a new set of clothes and new shoes and a special Christmas meal is a big part of the celebration.
We want to buy each child at TOA a new outfit and shoes for Christmas, plus have a big FEAST on Christmas Day at the orphanage. We would also like to replenish the sporting goods at the orphanage - with new soccer, tether and basketballs, jump ropes, frisbees and the like.
Since the children are out of school in December - we would also like to take the kids and staff on a special outing to a beautiful lake about an hour away - where they can sit and have lunch at a restaurant that overlooks the lake and make a very special Christmas memory. We would also like to bless our hard working Tanzanian staff at the orphanage with a Christmas bonus - that will help them pay school fees for their own children. These are our Christmas DREAMS for Treasures of Africa Children's Home.
Would you SHARE a little of your Christmas budget with orphans? And SHARE THIS EMAIL to encourage others to do the same? Thank you!
