It’s that time of year here at the Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission. We are pulling out the decorations, dusting off our tree and preparing to wrap another boat load of presents! The Christmas celebrations are about to begin!
It’s no small job! There are 84 children, 41 Staff and volunteers and around 60 expected visitors! There are gifts and clothes to buy… treat bags and stockings to fill… picnics, special meals, fireworks and decorations. All for 185 people!
If you find it challenging to host a nice Christmas for you and your family, imagine if you had nearly 200 coming over to celebrate!
Deck the halls with boughs of holly!
Of course this all comes at a cost!
This year it is our wish that you might be able to help us give these amazing children another Christmas to remember. We are looking to raise at least $2500 to help cover some of the costs of Christmas. You can click the button below to donate towards our Christmas appeal.
Thanks for considering this and for bringing a little more joy to the world.
What do you think? It would be amazing if you can contribute but we’d also love any social media shares as it all helps towards getting the word out there. Facebook, Twitter, phone or email a friend. It all adds up and all makes a difference.
Here is a little video that we put together of Christmas Celebrations here on our orphanage. From gingerbread houses to piñatas, fireworks and caroling, gifts and special meals and so much more. We hope the happy faces you’ll see will show you some of the incredible joy that this season brings for our kids.
From all of us at the Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission…from the staff, and the extended family all over the world…
THANK YOU for helping us make this Christmas shine a little brighter for these amazing kids.
