The Gift of Supporting a Child in Need

When you visit our gift catalog and choose to donate a goat, cow, clean water, frontline health supplies for children and families impacted by COVID-19, or any of the other 60+ animals and items, you help give hope to a child in need. Your charity gift helps to create lasting change for children, their families and communities – ultimately, transforming the future we all share.

Featured charity gifts

Educate a Girl

$75 - An educated girl is more likely to avoid early marriage, delay childbirth and provide better nutrition, education and support for her family later in life. Our programs help young girls realize their dreams by providing books, learning materials and access to education.

1 Goat, 2 chicks

$80 - Children find fortifying nourishment in the milk and eggs that a goat and two chicks provide. When additional animals arrive, so do more milk and eggs that can be sold to pay for health care, schooling, clothing and more.

clean water kit

$20 - When a family loses everything in a disaster or emergency, a clean water kit — including soap, a bucket and water-purifying aqua tabs — can be a literal lifesaver.
