Gifts That Make a Difference
Do you sometimes wonder what to say when someone asks you what you would like for your birthday or Christmas? Or are you struggling to think of a suitable gift for a friend or family member?
Well, here is an idea that will not only solve the problem, but will also make a difference to the lives of the children at Destiny Garden School.
How about a row of tomato plants? Or a goat or some new books for the school library. Or even fish food – the school are setting up a fish farm to provide food for the children? There are many choices – see the complete list below.
All you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org saying what you are interested in, and whether you are buying it for yourself, or as a present for someone else.
Destiny Children will be in contact to discuss your choice and, once payment has been received, you will receive confirmation with a Gift Card, which can include a personal message if you wish. This can be sent to you or to your intended recipient, as appropriate. In due course, photos of the gift bought by the school will be available. Simple, fun, and very rewarding!
This is your chance to give or receive an unusual and thoughtful gift, whilst also helping the children at Destiny Garden School to transform their lives.
