Dark Friday Alternative

African Drought Survival Gift


If you turn on your TV or exit your house the evidence of Dark (Black) Friday washes over you like an acid bath. If you find yourself out on Friday, and now on Thursday, please consider putting back one of the items you believe will bring Christmas joy for an even better one. Compassion International is one organization that allows you to give Gifts of Compassion. For $100 you can buy a cow or for $45 you can by a goat for a family. Give the gift in the name of the person you were shopping for or get some friends together and purchase multiple items. Please visit the Compassion International website to see what your options are. I speak from experience when I say you definitely feel the spirit of the season. Here is a video of what the gift can do.


Your gift will help provide clean drinking water, medical treatment, disaster relief, food supplies and much more for Compassion-assisted children and their families.

Meet real needs and bring real joy with a Gift of Compassion, then get family and friends involved by giving gifts in their honor.

Once you purchase a gift, you will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of complimentary greeting cards to send to your honorees. You can select how you would like to send your cards:

  • Have a professionally printed card mailed to you or directly to your honoree
  • Print your card at home
  • Send an e-card to your honoree

Please share any similar sites you go to during this time of year.
