Our 2014 Angel Datebooks
When you support the work of Salesian Missions, you are a “guardian angel” to an innocent child in need …
… and as a reminder of the great works that “angels” like you make possible through Salesian Missions, I have sent you our 2014 Angel Datebook.
This beautiful datebook is my gift to you, and I hope the lovely images of God’s angels will remind you of the many children who need our help and protection.
You and I can make a difference. Together we can help lift these poor children up out of their despair. We can help them be children once again … and give them the chance for a decent future.
Our Angel Datebooks make wonderful gifts, but I’m sure the greatest reward will be the knowledge that you are bringing hope and joy into the lives of precious children – especially those living in misery and despair.
Our missionaries work selflessly in the world’s most desperate places – like the slums of Port au Prince, Haiti, the famine-stricken deserts of Ethiopia and the war-torn jungles of Central America. Here they offer needy youngsters not only the bare necessities of food, clothing and medicine, but also a loving home, a good education and training in a trade or profession that will be invaluable to their futures.
Thanks to generous “angels” like you, we are able to give these little ones more than a “handout” – we give them a “hand up” out of poverty.
Please be a “guardian angel” to these desperately poor children! You can help bring hope into their lives and lift them out of poverty, giving them a chance to live decent, dignified lives – lives full of God’s love.
Be sure to send your gift early enough so that you’ll receive more “2014 Angel Datebooks” and mailing envelopes in plenty of time to send them to the special friends and loved ones in your life (see the Gift Reply Form in your mailing for details.)

Make yourself familiar with the angels,
and behold them frequently in spirit;
for, without being seen, they are present with you.
