Alternative Christmas Card for 2016
Honor Your Family and Friends While Feeding the Hungry
While you and your family celebrate the joyous Christmas season, many Americans will experience the reality of hunger and poverty. America is still the richest nation on earth, but more than 40 million of its citizens suffer in poverty. This Christmas you can give them hope by the simple act of honoring your loved ones with a gift donation to feed the hungry.
Each $12 gift donation to the Society of St. Andrew provides about 500 servings of fresh, nutritious food to America’s hungry families. It’s a sincere and loving way to feed the hungry and honor special people in your life. When you do, each person you honor will receive our exclusive Alternative Christmas Card announcing your generous gift in their name.
Our Alternative Christmas Card was designed exclusively for, and donated to, the Society of St. Andrew by Texas artist Jerry Malzahn. The full-color, 7″x5″ card features original art on the front. This card announces your generous gift to feed the hungry in the name of your chosen honoree(s). You will also receive the same card with our thanks and confirmation of the number of people you honored.
No other gift can do so much, for so many, with so little.
Just go to our order page. We’ll send you the cards and envelopes to personalize and mail or, if you prefer, we will send them on your behalf in time for Christmas. For your convenience, you can use your VISA, MasterCard, or American Express on our secure website.
The minimum gift donation for EACH card is just $12
All gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law.
As we fulfill God’s command to share His love and peace and feed the hungry, may you experience the joy of sharing His abundance with those in need and be blessed with God’s peace.
The artist’s inspiration
The Flower Mound Church has experienced hills and valleys through its 150 year history. We were members in the nineties, and we still visit the church regularly. Its perseverance is incredible! There have been times without a pastor when an individual of the congregation would read Bible verses and the congregation would sing familiar hymns until a new pastor could be found to lead the Church. It has held services every Sunday for over 150 years to offer those who are searching and those who worship our Christ. The Society of St. Andrew has shown me that the “End Hunger” volunteers have the same dedication to continue to offer their service to help those who are hungry and in search of Christ. I’m honored to be a part of this extremely charitable mission.
