Meaningful #LightTheWorld Holiday Gifting Made Easy
Spanish Fork, Utah — October 4, 2022 Bountiful Children’s Foundation in its ongoing effort to end child malnutrition worldwide now offers honor gifting opportunities for the 2022 #LightTheWorld season on its newly designed website, BountifulChildren.org.
Many, if not most, of the people with whom we want to celebrate the holiday season are living comfortable lives. Finding a meaningful gift for them is difficult. Bountiful hopes that many this season will consider honor gifting, which is donating to feed a very needy child in the name of another person, family or group. Bountiful’s honor gifts come in the form of Christmas cards, In Loving Memory cards, customizable recognition certificates, and social media shoutouts for any occasion or celebration.
Every honor gift has the potential to bless a child and bless untold generations to come. The minimum donation is $8 which provides the protein and micronutrients for one child for one month. Because of the generous donations of Bountiful’s board members, 100% of every honor gift goes toward helping children. What better way is there to celebrate with your loved one or friend? Bountiful invites everyone to consider honor gifting this holiday season and throughout the year. Order honor gifts at BountifulChildren.org/shop.
“The other thing that we do is … we give our grandchildren donations to the Foundation instead of Christmas presents. … This last Christmas we gave $25 to the Bountiful Children’s Foundation for each of our grandchildren, and we had the Foundation let them know that this was done in their name,” says Robert A. Rees, respected Latter-day Saint educator, author [A New Witness to the World, 2020], and co-founder of Bountiful.
Bountiful serves children worldwide in 19 countries where it reaches over 200 communities with very high rates of child malnutrition, stunting, and wasting. Community coordinators are selected locally by leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to help with the Bountiful program, and children are helped without regard to race, religion, or ethnic origin. Because the Church allows many of Bountiful’s community coordinators to hold health screenings in church buildings, approximately half of the families that are in the program are members of the church. Bountiful presently focuses its efforts on the first 1,000 days of a child’s life. This time is so crucial that it can have long-lasting effects on a child physically and mentally if they don’t receive proper nutrition.
