Giving on Black Friday & Cyber Monday (with Samaritan's Purse)

Looking for a good deal on a holiday gift for someone?  Samaritan's Purse offers you the chance to change lives, give a gift, and all without leaving your cozy home to fight the crowds!

This nondenominational Christian organization has been serving since the 70's.  You can shop their "gift catalog" to find unique gifts for people.  

For example, one year for my son's preschool teachers, instead of giving them yet another body lotion or candle...I contributed to the Samaritan's Purse campaign to help a child in another country have access to school.  

There are lots of gifts $15 or under that you can choose from and you'll have the chance at checkout to get a card announcing the gift that you can wrap up and give to your recipient or you could create your own card.

Some of my favorite gift options from Samaritan's Purse:

Supply a family with baby chicks---that will grow up to be hens and produce eggs for the family's own nutrition and that they can sell and create a source of income.  #17 in the gift catalog.  $14.

Who could you "give" this to?  Friends, teachers, grandparents.

Sports gear---soccer balls or other playground recreational equipment.  #22 in the gift catalog.  $8.

Who could you "give" this to?  Coaches, PE Teacher, in-laws, adult men, brothers, pastors

Clean water---Share the cost of a filtration system that will serve over 3,000 people.  #4 in the gift catalog.  $15.  So many people die DAILY from diseases caused by dirty water.  It is heartbreaking.
