Add One More Child To Your Christmas List

The Christmas season is here. Getting ready to shop for a loved one?
Making a Christmas list?
Looking forward to that look of joy in a child's eyes when s/he gets up early to tear open wrapped gifts?

Well, there are 1.7 million children whose parents can't do that for them. There are 1.7 million children who will not celebrate Christmas with a parent. Why?

Because the parent is serving time in prison.

While the parent serves time, unfortunately so does the child.
They serve time waiting for a parent to get released.
They serve time with feelings of loneliness and depression.
In fact, the research shows prisoners' kids are more likely to end up in prison themselves and there are 1.7 million children whose parents are in prison.

Should the child have to pay for a parent's wrongdoing?
Should caring adults sit back and let children walk down paths of destruction?

Angel Tree doesn't think so. This organization steps in for the incarcerated parents at Christmas and provides a gift to their children. They also connect the children to local churches and the imprisoned parents with bible study groups, so that the long process of healing can begin.

Angel Tree hopes to reach 400,000 children of inmates this year. With a gift from you, they can reach their goal.

Put a gift under the tree of a child whose parent is imprisoned, and put the parent in a position where s/he can learn to live again.
