On a Christmas morning in 1977, a boy, his mother, and his siblings huddled under a single blanket in the living room of their house with no heat. They could see their breath. Living on welfare, they had no gifts, and certainly no Christmas tree. But in the midst of their gloom, they heard a knock at the door.
Padding over to the window, one of the children peeked out to see a brown box full of gifts and a frozen turkey sitting on the doorstep. Footprints in the snow trailed from the stoop to the street, then disappeared. The kindness of strangers turned a bleak holiday morning into a day of joy and thanksgiving that this little boy never forgot.
This is the event that sparked the development of You Gift. We Gift. Through this program, we, too, hope to provide needy children with that same sense of delight as we deliver unexpected gifts this holiday season.
If you know a child (or children) similar to the boy in this story who may otherwise receive no gifts for the holidays, please nominate them for You Gift. We Gift. We will verify the information and select the best stories. Then, our founder will personally drive around the country to find these children, and give them a gift card from GiftCards.com - FREE.
You gift by using GiftCards.com. We gift by taking part of our profits and giving to needy children.
Reasonable efforts will be made to contact a parent or guardian of the nominated child. If the story cannot be verified and permission obtained, the nominee will not be considered for YouGift, WeGift.
