One of our most exciting and rewarding events is here, “CHRISTMAS IN A BOX’!
We have been helping the Shalom Center Orphanage for the last few years. The African Moons Golf Tournament benefits the Orphanage and school children of Arusha, But last year we said, “We need to do something specific just for the kids for Christmas.” Well, you responded to the opportunity in amazing ways.
Our goal is to present 100 children a Christmas Box. We are keeping the cost to $35 per child. That is $3500 for 100 children to experience Christmas in November.
Look at these faces from last year.
Each box will be personalized and will contain toys, personal hygiene products, clothing and school supplies. In addition, we will take the children shopping for personal items.
We need you to help make this happen. Your special gift of $35 per child will equal one Christmas Box.
Just picture the children of Shalom receiving Christmas gifts, imagine children being excited over socks! We will also be giving toys and supplies to the Special Needs children of the Arusha Government Primary Schools.
Last year it took 9 suitcases to take everything to Arusha. The cost for this trip is $3500. If you can give towards travel expenses that will be greatly appreciated.
You can mail a check or give on www.africanmoons.org. You can also give using your Smart Phone, text any amount to 1-817-381-7200, it’s safe and easy. Thank you for making “Christmas in a Box” happen for these children.
Tanzania for Jesus!
