My wife, Elizabeth, had the opportunity to visit refugee families living in U.N. tents in a valley just 25 miles from Damascus. When she asked the families what they needed most, a bold little 7-year-old girl stepped forward and demanded, “Toys! We need toys!”

That little girl is right. Children who have been traumatized NEED toys. They have lost so much—their communities, their homes, even family members. And they have lost all of their familiar, beloved toys.

Refugee children have seen awful reality play out in front of their eyes.  They desperately need affirmation, love, hope, and the opportunity to play and use their imaginations. To receive a toy of their own, especially a toy that can share God’s love with them, can literally change a child’s life.

The outside of this toy is so soft and snuggly that a refugee child will have the chance to feel some comfort and happiness just by holding it.  

This is a cute toy, of course, but more than that, this adorable stuffed animal has something to say that will allow Christ’s message of hope to touch the heart of a precious refugee child.

When a boy or girl gently squeezes their animal, they will hear the audio adaptation of “The Story of Jesus for Children” in their very own heart language!

We were inspired and excited the first time we saw this happen. This animal was fluffy and adorable and played the gospel message!

We have faith that God will work powerfully through YOU and reveal Christ’s love to hurting refugee children and their families. Will you help put these toys into the hands of needy children?


Your actions today will make a powerful difference. We’ve seen the impact stuffed animals like this have across the Middle East, and in places where the gospel is not available.

With barely anything to call their own, these refugee children will be so excited see your gift arrive!


Thousands of refugee kids live in these camps, and their moms, dads and grandparents may have never heard the redeeming message of Christ.

To honor the mom in your life, and bless a refugee child, we need your help to pack and ship these stuffed animals so that God’s message of hope can wash over the Middle East!

Like you, we want every refugee boy and girl to feel loved and safe, and these toys will help give that to them, and more. Imagine the joy when they open the box and receive your heartfelt gift! Grinning from ear to ear, they will hug that soft and fluffy animal and listen to the stories of Jesus over, and over again.

And with Mother’s Day around the corner, what a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to your own mother, or any mother, and send this life-changing gift to a precious child.

If you choose, when you give today, a special tribute card will be sent to your mom, or any mother, letting them know that a stuffed animal was given to a refugee child in her honor.

To ensure postal delivery of your card by Mother’s Day we must receive your gift by May 9.

And don’t forget what happens when a refugee child squeezes their little animal—the whole family will hear Bible stories and songs in their own heart language!

How to Get Your Special Card

If you would like a tribute card by Mother’s Day, your gift must be received by May 9, 2017. Postal mail will be sent to U.S. addresses only and all other gift notifications will be sent via email.
