Education is a right. Without uniforms or school supplies many children are denied that right.
WOW Christmas is changing that.
Churches, schools and other groups in North America can support a child in Zambia by hosting WOW Christmas!
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
1.GET ON BOARD
Decide to roll out WOW Christmas at your school, church,
Christmas party or wherever you want.
Meet with your pastor, principal, or whoever you need for
Show them the WOW Christmas video
2.SAVE THE DATE
Set a launch date and contact us for a WOW Christmas backpack! It has everything you need to make
your event a success.
- Brochure with instructions
- Donation cards
- Signable stickers for the childrens book you choose
We send you the back pack with everything you need. After the campaign, simply fill it with the completed cards and childrens books and send it back to us.
Pssst.. we have something special to help you with getting a kids book and to help us with shipping them overseas. We have partnered with Indigo/Chapters books stores for WOW Christmas 2017! Simply go to our WOW Christmas Indigo page and any purchase you make we receive 3% back (if you buy a gift card we receive 15% back.) All the funds will go to shipping your children’s book to Zambia!
3.SPREAD THE WORD
Start advertising your campaign. Put up poster, make announcements, share the video!
4.ROLL IT OUT
You can run WOW Christmas one day, two days or over the course of a couple weeks. The timeline is up to you!
Make the WOW Christmas packages available at a designated pick up spot or hand them out.
5.PACK IT UP
Set a deadline for supporters to drop off their completed donation form and childrens book. Once all collected, send everything back to us in the backpack.
Share the joy of Christmas by giving the gift of literacy! Along with your $25 choose a new or gently used childrens book that will fill the classrooms in WOW schools!
WHAT IS THE IMPACT?
A gift of $25 gives a child a WOW Christmas, complete with a new school uniform, school supplies, and a special WOW Christmas party in which the gospel is shared.
The uniform is sewn by widows in their tailoring business, allowing them to support their families. Supplies are purchased locally to invest in the economy.
Books are not commonplace in Zambian schools like in North American schools. Your donation of a new or gently used book will fill the empty bookcases and provide years of joy and imagination for Zambian school children.
WOW Christmas gives the gift of dignity. Children can hold their heads high as they sit alongside their peers, learning and growing together.
The best part? You get to make it happen.
