This is by far one of our favorite annual opportunities to give at Mosaic. By purchasing gift cards, we get to provide Christmas gifts to teens in foster care in Central Florida.

These gift cards do so much more than you can imagine as they are a huge part of restoring a sense of anticipation, wonder and value to some incredible young men and women during the Christmas season—a season previously marked by hurt and disappointment for some.

While you’re out shopping, we ask that you budget for a $50 gift card (or two or ten) to one of the suggested stores below:

Visa Gift Card
Target
Forever 21
Walmart
H&M
Amazon
ASOS
Best Buy
Zara

You can then drop these cards off at the wooden gift card tree that will be out by the Mission Wall until December 11th.

The gift cards will be given out during various holiday parties hosted by organizations in the Orlando area. Along with donating gift cards, you can also volunteer to help at one of the following events along with us! (We’ll be needing at least 40 volunteers and would love for you to be a part of it…) Let us know if you’re interested!
