Every year many of you wonderful people contact us and tell us all about how you would like to make a donation in honor of someone close to you. Your next question is always, “Is there anything you can provide that I could give to them in order to represent this gift in their honor?”
In the past we have provided a card of some sort but this year we are excited to be able to do much better than that.
Your gift this holiday season makes it possible for us to continue working to help the most vulnerable children in the world, kids in orphanages, and those whose families are so impoverished that they are on the verge of giving their children up in the hopes they will get a better life in a institution rather than the grinding poverty and hunger they face at home. Our work is to come alongside and lift up these orphanages and their communities, and these individual families within the communities, and empower them to bring positive change to the world around them. What better way to honor those you love than to help a child in their name?
We have 3 different gifts to send you to give to a loved one in whose honor you have made a donation this holiday season.
We have these adorable little handmade doll tree ornaments, dressed in traditional tribal clothing.
These cards were hand embroidered by women in the Mae-La refugee camp on the Thai/Burma border. Making these cards is one of their sole sources of income.
Finally we have a book that has inspired and informed us in our work and helps us to be hopeful about the direction of the work we do, and of people in general. We were given several copies of this book and now we share them with you.
Along with each gift will come a card explaining briefly what The Charis Project is doing in northern Thailand.
For more about what we do, please see our website.

Thank you for all you make possible through partnering with us. We wish you a holiday season full of light, joy, and life.
All of us at The Charis Project
