I started Lifeline Gifts about a year ago to help needy children of all ages around the world. I have a chronic illness that leaves me unable to perform normal daily tasks. I’m mostly confined to my bed or recliner, but I was seeking something that I could do, something for people and for God. So, I started gathering the needed funds. I was able to order all the supplies and, with the help of many willing hands, we have prepared 200 boxes that are ready to be sent out.
Lifeline Gifts packs boxes or backpacks filled with toys, hygiene supplies, school supplies, arts and crafts, and clothes and a New Testament. They are then sent around the world by Operation Christmas Child (Samaritan’s Purse) or similar organizations to children who are in very needy situations, such as war, famine, natural disasters, or those who have physical needs. I am also looking for more places where they can use these boxes or layette bundles.
During the recent 40 Days for Life campaign, I would have loved to have taken an active part, but since I am not able, I instead posted a prayer challenge on my blog to encourage people to pray for the campaign. I am very passionate about ending abortion and saving babies, and I want to do anything that I can to help. Recently the Lord has laid on my heart the idea of putting together small mom/baby gifts to be given out to moms who have chosen to save their babies.
We at Lifeline Gifts are hoping that there would be a way for us to partner with you, whether short or long term. I wondered if you would prayerfully consider sending any of the supplies mentioned above or a donation of money. We can’t do this without you! Our goal for 2021 is to pack as many boxes or layette bundles as we can. We are currently considering the possibility of turning Lifeline Gifts into an official non-profit organization, and we want our ministry outreach to touch as many lives as possible. We have organized a board and team to help me out with all that is involved with this undertaking.
You can donate online any time at www.lifelinegifts.com To donate supplies, or via check, please contact me for more details.

I look forward to working with you and I hope you have a blessed holiday season. Thank you for your consideration of giving to Lifeline Gifts and for helping this ministry plan.
