Our Works - Act for Peace

The 2015 Christmas Bowl

The 2015 Christmas BowlEvery year, 100,000 compassionate Christians join together in solidarity through the Christmas Bowl appeal. In a tradition that goes back to 1948, churches, individuals and communities give to support people suffering from conflict and disaster around the world.

This year, the support you showed was truly incredible. Thanks to your amazing generosity, the Christmas Bowl is on track to raise $2.4 million. It’s a true outpouring of love and compassion that makes a real difference to the lives of so many people. Your gifts willmean that refugee mothers in Ethiopia can get the clean water they need to save their children from deadly diseases, and support other life-changing projects around the world.
