The Cover of the Card

Before the marvel of this night,
adoring, fold your wings and bow;
then tear the sky apart with light
and with your news the world endow.
Proclaim the birth of Christ and peace,
that fear and death and sorrow cease:
sing peace; sing peace; sing gift of peace;
sing peace; sing gift of peace!

Alternative Christmas Card
(2014)

Honor Your Family & 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.

The Gift
Each $12 gift donation to the Society of St. Andrew provides about 600 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.

The Card
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
I’ve never seen an angel; however, I’m convinced they surround us every day. In my personal life, at each crisis or difficult pass, the resolutions are revealed so we may move on to our next stage of Christ’s loving challenges. I know of real life angels who work with relentless resolve to save every morsel of food from our fields for those hungry souls in need. I am so honored to do my small part for Society of St. Andrew and its tireless effort to bring this important need to our nation’s hungry. They are angels, indeed!
