Free Wheelchair Mission
For just $59.20, you can purchase a wheelchair in someone's name. By purchasing this wheelchair, you are providing dignity to someone who has been on the ground. This video explains it so much better than I could.

When you purchase a wheelchair, you receive a beautiful card explaining the donation plus a gift card for that wheelchair. The recipient can then go online and register that card. By registering the card, they are able to choose where the wheelchair goes. Awesome!

World Vision is a fantastic organization. They provide disaster relief plus general aid throughout the world. I have purchased items through World Vision for years. They also offer child sponsorship for those who wish to sponsor a needy child.
Check out the gift catalog! You can donate in someone's name and change lives all at once. Here are some gift options:
- 2 Chickens $25 - provide eggs, meat, and an income from bred chickens to a family without reliable food sources.
- $350 Worth of Necessities in USA $25 - diapers, clothing, blankets, shoes, toiletries for struggling families here in the US.

Just think. Americans - not worldwide - spend $10 BILLION on Christmas gifts. How much of an impact could we have on the hurting and desperate in this world if we simply allocated a small 10% of our regular Christmas budget to helping those less fortunate? Chew on that!
