Holiday Gift Alternative

posted Nov 22, 2017, 4:08 PM by World Hunger

As we near the Christmas & New Year's season and are faced with buying gifts for family and friends, we often struggle to find something that they will enjoy and use.
  As an alternative this year, the World Hunger Auction committee invites you to make a donation to the auction in honor of those to whom you would typically give a gift.  The donations would be added to the total received from other auction activities and then distributed to Heifer, RAM, the Global Food Crisis Fund, and Heavenly Manna.  Those who give will receive a statement acknowledging the gift and a card will be sent to the person, family or group that is honored.  You can find the Christmas Gift Donation Form on our Resources page.

Each year at our annual World Hunger Auction event in August we conduct a very popular separate silent auction for gifts of services given by those with a desire to donate their time in serving others in order to raise funds to benefit the WHA charities.  Any type of service could be donated such as: housework, lawn work, babysitting, recreation {boat ride, swimming}, instruction {computer lesson, music lessons}, trips, dinner, professional services {haircut, manicure, bush hog, etc}. 
So use your imagination and the form found here to donate a special service to benefit those in need.  You don't have to be present at the auction to participate, our silent auction director Ann Minnix will contact you with the winning bidder information.   Thanks in advance for your participation in this unique ministry!
