Morocco Gift Cards: Alternatve Christmas Gifts with Meaning
Kentucky Baptist Fellowship will make Morocco Gift Cards available again for Christmas in 2011. Choose a meaningful gift for a loved one and help refugee children and families in Morocco receive the basic necessities in life. Morocco gift cards work by allowing people to purchase greeting cards for various amounts. The card carries a simple phrase like: "A gift has been made in your honor which will purchase one month of food for a refugee family in Morocco by [insert name] to celebrate the Christmas season." The contents of each card vary according to the purchase amount: $5 for a blanket, $10 for a winter coat, or $25 for a month of food, to name a few. If you or your church would like to join in this meaningful Christmas project, contact Joshua Speight at the KBF office (502-426-1931 or firstname.lastname@example.org). The gift cards are available to any church or individual to participate.
