The Angel Tree Program is part of Prison Fellowship's ministries. While Prison Fellowship works with men and women who are incarcerated, The Angel Tree portion of their ministry focuses on the children of those who are incarcerated. Many people are familiar with what Angel Tree does during the Christmas season. Prison inmates sign their kids up for the program, and tags are created for each child with a suggested gift that they would like. Families can pick out a tag, buy a gift, and then the program helps to deliver those gifts to children along with the good news of Jesus. Without the caring families around the nation who make sure these kids receive a gift, many wouldn't have Christmas at all. But beyond that, the Angel Tree Program offers summer camp opportunities, mentoring resources, and tries to reach these kids during the whole year with the love and the hope that can be found in Christ.
This year, they are trying to provide 425,000 children with gifts. Currently, there are still 62,194 children still left on the list that need to be provided for.
That's where you come in! For every comment that you leave on the blog, our family will make a contribution to the Angel Tree Program to help these children have a Christmas. With so many kids left on the list, we hope you leave as many comments as possible so that our blog community can help care for these kids. And, of course, if you want to pick up a gift for a child yourself, you can visit the Angel Tree website for more information.
Remember, for every comment left on a non-giveaway blog post during November, we will donate $0.10 to Prison Fellowship's Angel Tree Program!
Thank you for being part of our A Beautiful Ruckus community and blessing others with us!
