Giving Tuesday!   
December 2, 2014

Dear Friends,



We hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!  As we prepare for Christmas, we remember that a small child in Bethlehem changed the world. Please remember that there's a child in our Holy Land today who, with some help, could lead that region toward peace.

You can make the difference. Your gift this Giving Tuesday can provide scholarship aid to a child who might otherwise receive no education.  Peace begins on a school desk.  Without an education, hope is hard to come by.  And without hope, what can the future bring?   


Change the direction of a child's life and help build hope from the ground up. Take a moment to make Giving Tuesday a day of promise in our Holy Land. Thank you so much!        

Congratulations to Archbishop Suheil Dawani
