Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner? Stores began promoting it in October with Christmas decorations and the sale ads start sooner and sooner. I have a friend who likes to stress everyone out on social media by posting a countdown for how many days there are until Christmas.

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I love everything about it. I love the hustle and bustle. I love the cooking, baking, shopping, wrapping, and parties. I love the church services and the Christmas story. I have so many fabulous memories of Christmases of long ago, both as a child and as a parent of young children. I’m blessed, and I don’t take that lightly. I’m so grateful.

Some of our girls have not been as fortunate. In years past, they have experienced horrific circumstances and Christmas for them was just another day.

At Rescuing Hope, we’d like to make this year different. We’d like to provide Christmas for them and their children; however, we need your help.

Would you #BetheKey to providing a great Christmas memory for them by donating gift cards to either Walmart, Target or Old Navy? These gift cards will allow us to purchase and wrap gifts for our girls to open on Christmas morning, as well as provide gift cards for them to purchase and wrap gifts for their children. They will also be able to buy groceries to make a special Christmas meal.

Everyone should have fond memories of Christmas, especially children.

If you would like to be part of this Christmas experience for our girls, please:

1. Purchase a gift card to Walmart, Target or Old Navy.

2. Mail the gift card and receipt to Rescuing Hope, 1750 Powder Springs Road, Suite 190, Box 112, Marietta, Georgia 30064 no later than December 10th. Make sure to include your return address. 

3. Go to Facebook and like our page, follow us on Instagram and Twitter. Stay tuned to our social media to see how things turned out for our Hopes and their family.

4. Share this with your friends and family and encourage them to participate. 

If you would prefer to send a financial contribution and want it to go towards Christmas for Hope, make sure you include a note stating your wishes.

Thank you for your willingness to #BetheKey to making this Christmas the start of new traditions and happy memories for our girls!

Thank you for helping us provide Christmas for Hope!
