Gifts In Kind

Giving gifts-in-kind (GIK) is a type of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, the goods and services themselves are given.   As Christians, we give because sharing with those in need is at the core of the Gospel.   Please remember that the contents of the boxes we ship reflect the love of Christ to those in need around the world. So, be sure the clothing is clean, in good shape and packed in appropriately marked banana boxes.
