HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This time of year is truly a season filled with hope, happiness, and amazing miracles. This is also a season of hope for the poor. Even in the poorest, darkest places that Bright Hope serves, this same hope fills the hearts of the poor. You can be a part of bringing hope to the poor by being a blessing to others through Bright Hope's "Season of Hope" campaign.
Imagine a child looking forward to a hot meal every school day, freedom from malaria because of a simple mosquito net, the warmth of a single blanket as he sleeps at night, or a family to care for him. "These may be simple joys to us, but they are life-changing wonders for children in Africa, Asia, and Latin America," states Craig Dyer, Bright Hope President.
Your "Season of Hope" gift can bring hope through micro-loans and job training for many families. Such gifts can enable men to earn enough to sustain their families on their own. It can allow women to proudly display their handiwork of crafts, baked bread, sewing projects, and/or goods to be sold in their community – serving as a working example to their children and the entire village.
You can bring empowerment to the indigenous churches in the 10 countries Bright Hope serves. Distribution of Bibles in native languages and pastor/church support are discipleship in action. These churches are at the core of Bright Hope, delivering physical, economic, and spiritual hope to all they encounter. With your gift, the extreme poor will receive help through their church, directly experiencing miraculous blessings in their lives.
The "Season of Hope" catalog offers twelve gifts that can be given on behalf of a friend or loved one that will truly make a difference in the poorest parts of the world. These are gifts that will change lives by providing health, food, job opportunities and hope to people and communities ravaged by poverty - those living on less than $1 a day.
We also want helping the poor to be a fun and unique experience. Use the clever child's "HopeCatcher" game that is available to help your children or grandchildren assemble the game and follow the instructions. Talk about the different options to support the poor this Christmas and choose the one(s) that best reflect your family or loved one's gratitude to Jesus and obedience to His Word.
To order a gift that changes lives, place your order online at BrightHope.org by clicking on "Season of Hope," or call Bright Hope at 224-520-6100.
All gifts given through the "Season of Hope" campaign are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
