Help spread the joy.

When basic needs go unmet for children living in poverty, a Christmas gift isn’t even a possibility. But together, we can raise $2.5 million to help every child registered with Compassion’s programs receive a special gift this Christmas.

Your donation will help provide 1.8 million children in need in Africa, Asia and South and Central America with a Christmas gift of their very own. Purchased by a Compassion staff member who knows the child best, the present could be a fun toy, brand new clothes, and/or delicious food for their whole family. For many children, it will be their only gift at Christmas time. And for some, it will be their first present, ever.

Spread joy this Christmas and impact kids in 26 developing countries, from Burkina Faso to Brazil and many countries in between!

A first Christmas.

A new Compassion centre in the Philippines celebrated their very first Christmas last year, with each child receiving a Christmas gift. For many of them, it was the first gift they had ever received.


A special Christmas message.

Sending a Christmas message to the children you write to is a wonderful way to share the hope of Jesus.
