The Society of St. Andrew, a national hunger relief ministry and United Methodist Advance #801600, offers an alternative way of sharing the true meaning of Christmas, not just with people you know, but with thousands of strangers you will never meet but whom you can help feed. For a minimum donation of $12 per card, one can send a custom-designed alternative Christmas card to those one wishes to honor with a donation to feed the hungry, or one can have the Society of St. Andrew (SoSA) send the cards for him or her.

This year's card is the fourteenth in a series designed exclusively for SoSA by Virginia liturgical artist Annis McCabe. The full-color, 7 inch by 5 inch card features original art outside and inside describing "The Work of Christmas" put forth in Howard Thurman's poem of the same name. This was also the verse used in SoSA's first Christmas card. This one-of-a-kind card announces your generous gift to feed the hungry in the name of your honorees; you will also receive the card as a thank you and confirmation of your order.

The Society of St. Andrew's Christmas Gift Donation Cards can be ordered by mail, phone, fax or online: 800-333-4597; fax at 434-299-5949; e-mail to card@endhunger.org; online at www.endhunger.org/card.
