Can you imagine waking up on Christmas morning knowing that, for you, the day will be the same as every other day?
Did you know that many of the children at Sunrise have never known the joy of celebrating Christmas or having presents to open? Our goal is for every one of the 600 children in our care to have someone provide them with a joyous Christmas they can remember. Many of our children still need sponsors. Can you help?
You can shop for one of our kids, or simply make a monetary donation and we’ll do the work for you! Simply follow this link: http://www.sunrise.org/ christmas-sponsor or contact Cindya Hills at 1-800-456-1386.
