When local dad Doug Irvine saw the photos of kids in the Global Gift Guide, he knew he had to help. He rounded up his wife and three kids, and together, this family did something incredible.
As a family, Doug, Mindy, and their kids prayed about how they could help, then emptied their savings account and gave gifts through World Concern’s Global Gift Guide – and changed the lives of children and families in some of the world’s poorest villages.
“I remember introducing the photos to the kids and talking about the opportunities that World Concern give in buying chickens and cows, it was a good way to introduce it to the kids and saying this is a way we can give without just giving money.” Doug shared.
Doug & Mindy talked to their kids about being generous because God has been so generous and given much. Their response to that is to be generous to others.
The Irvine Family and World Concern caught the Christmas Spirit by making a tangible impact for families in some of the poorest places. If you want to find out more about World Concern’s Global Gift Guide and how it can fit in with your own Christmas Giving, visit www.globalgiftguide.org.
