What difference does it make?
Needy children, born into poverty discover a powerful message through the BIG meal and that is that somebody cares!   You can demonstrate how much you care about their Christmas happiness by donating to the BIG meal.

Somebody Cares:
The BIG meal has grown over a number of years from something quite simple as we tried to bless some of the poorest children we had come in contact with during teams deployment.   Over the years it has developed with more structure and purpose.   Today our desire is to communicate something very special to needy and forgotten kids, and that is that somebody cares.   Can you imagine what message a child receives when they are gifted a special meal on Christmas Day from someone many thousands of miles away that they do not know.   "Out there someone cares" is a very satisfying truth for them to dwell on during times of real poverty and suffering.

The Christmas Story:
Local partners who manage and serve the BIG meal are also tasked to share the Christmas story with the children.   This wonderful story reinforces the message that 'someone cares' by informing them that the God of heaven cares for them and sent His Son, Jesus, into the world for them.

You can set up a fundraising page as you raise awareness of the BIG meal allowing those you share with to have the opportunity to give.   Donors can just make a one-off donation if they prefer.
