GIVE THE GIFT OF HOPE THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON; Change An Orphan's World Forever Through Show Hope's Gifts Of Hope Campaign

26 November 2012 - As we enter the holiday season, Show Hope is sharing a unique gift idea for families and friends - a gift that can literally change an orphan's life forever. Now in its second year, Show Hope is promoting their Gifts of Hope campaign where you can directly impact a child's life by giving a gift from the Show Hope Gift Catalog.  
Last year, hundreds of Show Hope sponsors and supporters made the decision to do something different to celebrate Christmas for friends and family through the first year of the Gifts of Hope campaign. With contributions totaling more than $100,000, hundreds of waiting children from around the world received the hope of a forever family restored through adoption aid grants. Additionally, hundreds more orphans with special needs experienced the life-giving medical care they so desperately needed at Show Hope's Special Care Centers.  
Show Hope invites everyone to join them for the second year to give the gift of hope! Using the Gifts of Hope Catalog is simple: 
Step 1: Browse the online catalog to shop
Step 2: Select the gifts you want to purchase
Step 3: Share the blessing with the gift recipient using an ecard or giving card

Generous hearts who have given to Show Hope have already transformed the lives of children like Evan Hook, pictured above, who was adopted from Russia. Evan's forever family shared, "You need to know that what you are doing makes a difference. A daughter is in our family now; Evan wouldn't be here without people like you. Thank you is so inadequate...you saved our daughter's life." - The Hook family

About Show Hope:
A ministry founded in 2003 by Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife Mary Beth to help care for the millions of orphans around the world, Show Hope helps to provide waiting orphans with forever families by giving financial grants to adoptive families. To date, Show Hope is now an internationally recognized voice for orphan advocacy and has given more than 3,500 financial grants, affecting the lives of children from 50+ different countries, including the U.S. In addition to giving financial grants, Show Hope also empowers families, churches and communities with adoption and orphan care resources and advocacy efforts to change the world for orphans.
Show Hope, expanding its remarkable worldwide impact, also provides for orphans with special needs in China through its four Special Care Centers. One of these centers is Maria’s Big House of Hope, a six-story healing home facility located in Luoyang, China. Opened in the summer of 2009, its mission is to provide the highest level of care for orphans who are in desperate need of surgeries and medical attention, thus enabling the children to thrive and increase the orphans' chances of being adopted. Three additional centers have opened in the Henan province of China in the cities of Zhengzhou, Jiaozuo and Xinyang, operating in state-run orphanages as an extension of the care being provided at Maria’s Big House of Hope.
The Chapmans were most recently recognized for their adoption advocacy by The Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO) who presented them with the The Defender of the Fatherless Award. The Chapmans received the award this spring before 2,000 advocates of orphan care and adoption at the Christian Alliance for Orphans' Summit VIII, held at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California. Each year, the Defender of the Fatherless Award honors bold and sacrificial leadership that has inspired the church and transformed children’s lives. Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman were recognized for the immense impact they have had in re-awakening Christians to God’s call for orphan care through Show Hope.
