Here are a few ways you and your family can be a part of giving hope to a family and a child this Christmas:
1. Make a Donation to Help Make an Adoption Possible. Your gift will be used to help a family adopting a child overcome the financial hurdles. Further, as the family pays back their interest-free loan the money you donate will be used dollar for dollar to help another orphan enter a Christian family. It truly is a “gift that keeps on giving”, giving hope to child after child. Click here to make a donation online.
2. Start a Memorial Fund. Through LegacyChild you can establish a fund through which family and friends can make tax-deductible donations in memory of a loved one. Start a fund, we’ll set up your own page on our website with photos and information, then let your family know about it as your Christmas gift to them. You then have the blessing of choosing a family from our website to give an interest-free adoption loan too. Your gifts through your memorial fund will help the family you choose adopt, and as they pay their interest-free loan back you will have the opportunity to help another family, and another, and another!
3. Invest in the Establishment of an Adoption Fund for your Church.
Sometimes all it takes is one person to start a fund for their church. By establishing local church adoption funds, local churches can directly minister to their own families and help provide financial assistance to those called to adopt. The ABBA Fund provides churches with administration and an approval process at no cost. Read about how it works here and contact us for more information.
Folks can also start a Legacy Child fund in HONOR of your existing family! We started a fund last year to honor our families (who have everything they need for Christmas). Instead of buying gifts that no one really needed, we placed money in an adoption fund through Legacy Child/ABBA Fund, and this past year were able to help a couple get a very special gift this Christmas….a new son from Russia! Praise God for working so quickly, with a relatively small amount of money to help this forever family.
We just mailed off our check today for this year’s Christmas donations and you can do the same….check out the Kiker/Glover Honor Fund on the web link http://www.abbafund.org/legacyfunds.htm
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
