Where: Dominican Republic

Reading Glasses

$38 sends 200 pairs of reading glasses to community-based medical outreaches.


A pair of eyeglasses can dramatically improve the life of a Dominican man, woman or child living in poverty. It can increase earning power, improve educational opportunities, and make it possible for an individual to perform everyday tasks. Sadly, glasses are expensive and far beyond the reach of the most vulnerable. But this Christmas, you can bless the poor in the Dominican Republic with a wonderful gift — reading glasses.

Cross Catholic Outreach

Our mission is to mobilize the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Your gift empowers us to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries. This cost-effective approach helps break the cycle of poverty and advance Catholic evangelization.


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 are lifesaving items such as Basic Medicines or Hygiene Products, while others are large-scale 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 Emergency Aid Blankets or Powdered Milk for Children. Select and sponsor one or more of these gifts, and you’ll be making 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.

You may give on behalf of a friend or a loved one! Simply complete the checkout process and then print this certificate. Add in your loved one’s name to let them know that a Christmas gift has been made in their honor to serve the poor.
