the gift that keeps on giving

Today is "Black Friday", the Friday after Thanksgiving where some Americans wake up at 3:00am to stand in line at retail stores, hoping to find the perfect gift for everyone on their list. However, even the most diligent shopper is bound to have at least one person on their list who "has everything". What should you buy for that person this year?

Recently I received a gift catalog from the Cristian Reformed World Relief Committee (CRWRC) entitled, The Gift that Keeps on Giving. Here is what the letter accompanying the catalog said:

You may have heard the old proverb, “Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.” What if this applied to your gift giving as well? What if your gift not only told one person that you loved them and celebrated them on a special occasion, but it also created a better future for someone in need? That’s the theory behind the items in this gift catalog.

CRWRC staff have carefully chosen a number of items from our programs around the world that will help you celebrate your loved ones’ birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings, or Christmas and will also help someone in need improve their life in a real and lasting way.

What a great way to share your love and God’s love around the world!

I am so excited about this catalog and I have come up with a few really neat ways to integrate the gifts in the catalog with gifts I am giving to others. (you can e-mail me for my ideas...but I don't want to post them on my blog...just in case my family reads it!)

All the gifts are tax deductable and they start at only 25 cents...so there is definitly a gift for everyone on your list this year.
