Mission:180 Presents "Give the gift of a Christmas Hamper"


Mission:180 presents "Give the gift of a Christmas hamper".  Due to the overwhelming response to the sponsored children program (who are all now fully sponsored) we have decided to give you another option to give back this Christmas.  For $60 CDN we can purchase enough staple food to feed a family of four for about 6 weeks.  There are many extremely needy families that we are connected to.  A Christmas hamper is not only a gift of food, it's a gift of HOPE!  It's a gift that says someone cares about us. 

If you would like to be a part of this program and purchase a Christmas hamper as a gift from yourself or on behalf of someone else please email me at jennifer@mission180.ca


Each hamper will contain the following:

2 - 1KG packages of Red Kidney Beans
1 - 1KG package Green Grams (like a bean)
2 - 2KG packages of Sugar

Mission:180 Presents "Give the gift of education this Christmas"


Mission:180 has selected some deserving children that need help with their school fees for the upcoming school year in January.  We are looking for individuals, families, work groups, school groups etc to help either fully sponsor or partially sponsor a child this Christmas.  You could also honor someone special in your life by giving them this gift that will improve the life of a child in Kenya.  When you fully or partially sponsor one of the children you will receive a special thank you message from that child along with a picture of the child and updates on how that child is doing over the course of the school year.  It is a great way to give back this Christmas season!  All donations towards the children’s school fees will have tax receipts issued at year end so it is a win, win situation.  Please consider helping someone less fortunate this Christmas.

*Please note that this is not a monthly sponsorship program but rather a one-time donation for Christmas*
