International (MNN) — IN Network
has issued a challenge through their Facebook page: They want to raise 50 Baskets of Love for needy children around the
world through their Web site.
A tall order? Not necessarily. The actual goal–a special Christmas project–is
1,500 Baskets of Love to homes in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
A Basket of Love costs just $50 USD and is chocked full of essential
supplies that gets delivered to the home of the recipient by a local IN Network
church partner. The visit creates opportunity in two
ways: first, it meets a significant need. Second, it connects Christian nationals with residents and
opens the door for more effectively sharing the Gospel.
The program offers three ways to address
a need of the family. The first way is
through A Basket
of Food, which includes basic nutritious food–enough to feed a
family for two full weeks. The second way is A Basket
of Education that provides all the supplies a child needs
to attend school, empowering them to move beyond a life of poverty.
Lastly, A Basket of Medical Supplies provides protection against diseases which threaten a child's life, as well as supplies to improve the family's overall health.
You can give a Basket of Love in
honor of a friend or family member, acknowledged
with a gift card for each basket that you give.
IN Network invites you to join them this
Christmas in delivering love to a family in need — one basket at a time.
