Coffehouse tips go to ‘Good Gifts’

BROOKINGS – The Mission of the Month for December at Mission Coffeehouse is “Good Gifts, Give Something Unexpected This Christmas.” 

Take the guess work out of shopping. Honor friends and loved ones with gifts that grow and transform lives. What if you could gift someone in the world with a gift that saves their life? All your donations support long-term sustainable solutions that ensure that people who live in poverty have a chance at new life. 

Imagine receiving a gift of an animal that you can raise and sell the produce from. Imagine the gift of fresh water from a well or to irrigate your field. 

Imagine receiving the gift of an education or essential text books. Imagine the gift of food or medicine. Imagine the gift of surgery or dental care. Imagine the gift of blankets or a disaster survival kit. Imagine the gift of farming and seeds. Imagine the gift of Bibles and hymnals. Imagine the gift of a Pastor or Sunday school. All of these gifts can be given through your donation through Good Gifts.
