DO YOU HAVE A “HARD TO CHOOSE FOR” FRIEND OR RELATIVE WHO YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO GIVE FOR CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR?

How about giving them a big HUG as well as reaching out to a special need in the world at the same time?!

You’ll notice something different …


Here’s our Hands Up Gift catalogue for Christmas 2019. It’s another opportunity for you to get a gift for that ‘hard-to-buy-for’ special person, a gift with a twist as it’s not for them but for someone around the globe who needs a Hand Up. We’ll send you a card to give to your special person explaining that they have ‘blessed’ someone much less fortunate than them through your gift.

But this year, there is no value assigned to each of our HUG options. That means you have the flexibility to choose the value of the gift you make on behalf of your friend or family member, for any of the eleven HUG options we have listed. The minimum amount for any one HUG card is $25, but the sky is the limit.

All we need you to do is indicate on the donation page which hug(s) you are giving to. We have a wide range of ministries you can contribute to, and you are no longer constrained in the amount you allocate to each. Simply choose the best fit from the range of activities and allocate the value of your gift. 

Thanks for supporting these activities. What value do you put on a Hands Up Gift to people in these desperate situations?
