Your Gift for Christmas and Year’s End

This year, give a gift that reflects the true significance of Christ’s birth. Jesus taught us that whatever we do for "the least of these," we do for him. Make a donation to Bread for the World in honor of your loved ones this Christmas. They’ll be touched by your thoughtfulness and you’ll be helping to end hunger in the United States and abroad. Your gift will help Bread persuade our nation’s leaders to provide adequate food and nutrition to hungry and poor people. We’ll send a special card to your loved one, along with a one-year complimentary membership to Bread for the World. Visit www.bread.org/gift to honor your loved ones this Christmas.

You can also give a gift of hope and opportunity to hungry people with your year-end contribution to Bread for the World. Make your gift today by visiting www.bread.org/go/give or use the enclosed envelope. Tax-deductible gifts to Bread for the World Institute support research and analysis that shapes policies and legislation that will help end hunger. For assistance with stock transfers and charitable gift annuities, please contact Jim Lund, vice president of development, by calling toll-free 1-800-822-7323 (ext. 1091) or email jlund@bread.org.

Presidential Candidates Addressed Hunger and Poverty

Bread for the World successfully raised the issues of hunger and poverty in the presidential election. With our Circle of Protection partners, we asked President Obama and Governor Romney to provide short video statements on how they would provide help and opportunity to hungry and poor people in our country and around the world. We were able to release statements from both candidates just after the party conventions. Prior to the election, 30 million Christians received email messages linking to the two videos.
