I came up with a great idea this Christmas.
Maybe it’s because I have a hard time thinking of good ideas for Christmas presents, but whatever the reason let me share my idea.
When I think of Christmas I often think of Baby Jesus and how his mother delivered him unassisted in a barn because there was no room for them anywhere and no one willing to help them.
How about this Christmas, sponsoring the delivery of a mother and baby much like them? (Minus the baby being the Son of God of course!)
There are so many mothers here in Kalinga that still deliver their babies at home without someone to help them and in conditions very much like a barn. We at Abundant offer these mothers a safe and comfortable place to deliver, with well-trained midwives who love and take care of them in their hour(s) of need. We don’t require that these mothers pay anything and if they can pay something it is a very small amount.
The cost for one mother to receive complete prenatal care, labor and delivery care, and postpartum visits until six week postpartum is almost exactly $200.00.
How about sponsoring a delivery this Christmas in the name of that person on your list who has everything?
For a donation between $50 and $200 the person whose name you choose as a “sponsor” will receive a card in the mail with a set of footprints and a brief story about the baby who was sponsored in their name.
You can even do it in your own name and receive the card!
If this sounds like a good idea to you, please click on the “Sponsor A Delivery” tab above and get all the details.
Have a blessed Christmas Season everyone.
