USA (MNN) — School supplies can make an eternal impact around the world at Christmas. Are you surprised? When it's a Global AID Network CarePack, it can.
Items like pencils, pens, crayons, and pads of paper are standard issue in schools across North America. But millions of orphans in Africa, Central Asia, Latin America and other parts of the world have no access to basic items like these. Supplies are scarce and shared among entire schools, and what teachers don't have they simply do without.
These items, packaged together with gifts and a letter from the family who sent the CarePack demonstrates and expresses to the child who receives it that God loves him or her individually. For children that have been shuffled through orphanage institutions, these personal gifts make a tremendous impact. In addition, creating a CarePack can become a family affair, teaching children the value of sharing the Gospel.
By providing these basic items to needy orphans and children overseas, your family won't be merely sending pencils and paper — you'll be sending hope and the love of God. To find out to get provide CarePacks, click here.
