It’s estimated that 780 million people worldwide don’t have access to clean drinking water and 2.5 billion people lack effective sanitation. So how can you provide water for families in need? Cross Catholic Outreach’s Christmas Catalog allows you to contribute toward water projects to help families in places like Nicaragua, Kenya and the Dominican Republic. With your support, we can transform lives and communities forever. Please — help us bring the miracle of safe water and effective sanitation to families in need!
Clean water changes lives by reducing illness, easing the labor burden on children, and helping local farmers grow bountiful crops that support healthy diets. Having a safe, reliable water system can also draw families to the Living Water of Christ.
To date, Cross Catholic Outreach donors have helped bring clean water to over 640,000 Kenyans! Your gift will continue the lifesaving blessing for our brothers and sisters in Kenya.
The Cross Catholic Outreach Christmas Catalog makes it fun and easy to extend the joy of Christmas to the poor. Instead of being filled with retail items, the catalog contains meaningful gifts for some of the world’s most impoverished families. Some gifts are lifesaving items such as Food or Hygiene Products, while others are large projects such as Safe Homes or Clean Water. All gifts are sent on your behalf to grateful families in developing countries.
It’s easy to shop through the Cross Catholic Outreach Christmas Catalog. Simply browse through the categories and choose an item within your budget and close to your heart, such as Women-Owned Farms in Haiti or Powdered Milk for Children. Select and sponsor one or more of these gifts, and you’ll make a meaningful impact on the life of a needy child or family overseas. It’s that simple!
Blessing the poor happens year-round. Some gifts in our Christmas Catalog are sourced locally, so there is no need to worry about international shipping. For items that require shipping, Cross Catholic Outreach works with partners in every country we serve to ensure Christmas Catalog gifts are delivered in a timely fashion.
Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for the Christmas Catalog incurred through June 30, 2024, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
