You are an angel!
She was sold into domestic slavery in Porto-Novo, Benín ... betrayed by impoverished parents who couldn't afford to feed her.
He ran away from an abusive family in Medellín, Colombia ... only to end up on the streets, vulnerable to rampant gang violence, substance abuse and worse.
They are just two among the abandoned, orphaned and exploited little children the world has forgotten.
But you haven't.
Every day, desperate children like these pray for a better life ... and you have answered their prayers with compassion and generosity. You help Salesian Missions lift countless boys and girls out of darkness ... and into the light of dignity, hope and a brighter future.
In gratitude for your support, I have sent you our 2017 Angel Datebook.
This inspirational datebook is my gift to you. I hope it will remind you of the important events in your life, and how you have been a "guardian angel" to the children in our care -- keeping them safe, warm and free of hunger and fear.
As you gaze upon the beautiful images of God's angels, I hope you see these precious girls and boys ... as well as the many more who are still praying for our help. Together, we can make a difference in their lives.
When you make a contribution in support of Salesian Missions, you are bringing hope and joy to so many unfortunate boys and girls who need it most. What a truly meaningful gift this Christmas season.
Please be sure to make your gift early enough, so that I may send you more 2017 Angel Datebooks and mailing envelopes in plenty of time to give them to the special friends and loved ones in your life (see the Gift Reply Form in your mailing for details).
Thank you, in advance, for whatever you can give today. You are truly an “angel!”
May God Bless you,
Father Mark Hyde, S.D.B.
Director, Salesian Missions
