Gift process

Twelve Days members personally shop for and carefully wrap multiple gifts for each child. The Atlanta chapter collects a wish list for each child to ensure that the gift giving process treats recipients with dignity and respect honoring the humanity of the individual. The gifts are then presented to the children at a holiday party along with food and holiday themed treats. Last year, our efforts supported 65 children in the Atlanta Metropolitan area in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta.
