Merry Christmas, Happy Thanksgiving, and a wonderful holiday season to you all! As you already know, this season is one of the most important times of the year for Little Children of the World. To meet our goal for the end of the year, we are still in need of over $50,000. Thank you to everyone who has given throughout the year in support of Little Children of the World. We would especially like to thank everyone who has given items and funds for the Christmas celebration at LCP!
During the Season of Giving, from now until the end of the year, we are fundraising for our Urgent Needs, which includes the Peace and Faith program, the Wee Women Dorm, the Consuelo Home for Boys, sponsorship needs, and the rest of our programs, and you can get involved to help! Below, you will see some great ways to get involved during the Season of Giving! As the holidays approach, here are some fun ways to help LCW meet our goals as you celebrate:
Are you doing any Black Friday or holiday shopping online? Did you know you can shop at Amazon Smile for all the great brands and products you love, and Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchase to LCW at no additional cost to you all throughout the year? All you have to do is visit smile.amazon.com and select Little Children of the World as your charity of choice to get started. Then, shop just like you would on the regular Amazon app or online store. All the features, deals, and services are the same, but you can feel good knowing your purchases are also making a difference!
Stock Monday (the Monday after Thanksgiving) is coming soon, and many of you are considering end-of-year donations. You can make a big impact, while saving money in the process! Did you know that donating stock is one of the smartest ways to give, and it benefits you while supporting Little Children of the World? You can save on taxes! When you donate your appreciated assets, you avoid paying capital gains tax. If you itemize deductions, you can also take a charitable deduction for the entire donation amount. Now is the perfect time to donate! For your gift to be eligible for your 2021 tax return, you must give by December 31, 2021, but we accept stock donations year round. Jumpstart your end-of-year giving by celebrating Stock Monday — and maximize your impact for Little Children of the World, while minimizing your tax burden. Contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-358-2771 for details or to set up a stock donation.
Giving Tuesday (the Tuesday after Thanksgiving) is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. In this difficult time of uncertainty, one thing that gives us hope in this crisis is being able to share love, give help, and bring hope to those who need it most. All around the world, we are joining forces and leaning on each other – and this generosity tells us that we will achieve the better, more just world we all seek. Giving Tuesday is your perfect opportunity to give back to these sweet and needy children and to the ministry to continue to make an impact. This is the day that we all get to join hands across the globe and celebrate love, generosity, and sharing.
Will you join hands with us and help make a difference in the life of a child today? You gifts make an impact and truly change lives. Thank you for supporting Little Children of the World in whatever way you can!
