Give The Gift Of Changing A Child’s Life This Father’s Day!

June 3, 2011 By Tracy

This Father’s Day I am giving a gift that will bless a child.

I am giving the gift of shoes to a child at Grace Baptist Church in Kombolcha, Ethiopia in honor of my dad. My family and I, currently sponsor a child at Grace Baptist Church a care-point in Kombolcha, Ethiopia.

Grace Baptist, sponsored by Children’s HopeChest, is a care-point for orphaned and impoverished children. Through the support of sponsors, Grace Baptist is able to provide food, clothing, education and Christian discipleship! However, the children have many other needs. One pressing need is shoes.


You too can celebrate your father (or husband) by making a monetary donation that will be presented to Grace Baptist care-point in Kombolcha, Ethiopia. Your monetary gift will be presented to Grace Baptist and will go to purchase new shoes for all the children. One pair of shoes costs $18 but I will accept any donation amount of $5 or greater.

I will send a Father’s Day card (see below) to the man you choose to honor. I am donating my time, and the cost to professionally print the cards is being donated by my brother, owner of Bayouland Advertising. The postage has been donated by another sponsor family, so 100% of your donation goes straight to Grace Baptist for shoes! Just provide me the name(s) and address of the recipients and I will do the rest!
