Our Holiday Gift Guide

this holiday season, honor your loved ones with a gift that transforms lives

Posted by OBS Team on December 11th, 2018

We can never be complacent when it comes to helping the Sudanese people overcome the hatred they face from their own government. For us, that means helping them get their stories out into the world and fundraising for the solutions they are spearheading on the ground. It means people from all over the world giving and fundraising alongside of us. And it means that sometimes we get really creative to keep moving the needle forwards. 

Christmas is almost here! As usual, we have some fantastic gift ideas to help you knock out your holiday shopping and support our friends in Sudan at the same time. Here they are:


Gift The Gala Experience

Our Good People Good Beer Gala is coming up on March 23, 2019! This marks the 7th year for the Gala and the theme is Masquerade! There will be delicious food, themed brews and drinks, games, dancing, and so much more. And proceeds benefit the Endure Primary and Renewal High Schools in Yida Refgee Camp, South Sudan! 

Our supporters buy tickets for their friends and family every year. It's a party no one wants to miss! If you are in the Memphis, TN area, you can go ahead and secure your spot and register a friend as well. Bonus points: earlybird tickets are discounted right now!



Honor A Loved One

Giving to the Sudanese people in the name of a loved one is a great way to express your gratitude for them this holiday season. When you do, we'll send them an e-card and your message letting them know that you gave in honor of them!

Your ability to send an e-card is built in to the online donation process. Here's the few extra steps you'll complete when you give online:

  1. Select "Dedicate my donation in honor or in memory of someone" and enter in their information
  2. Type your message to your loved one
  3. Pick your favorite e-card

And that's it! We'll take care of the rest after you complete your donation.



Give Away Your Christmas

Instead of asking for specific Christmas gifts from your loved ones, why not ask them for donations to one of the programs we support in Sudan instead? 

It's pretty easy to get started! Start a fundraising page for your favorite program and then ask people to give towards your goal instead of giving you a present. 


We also a full-time staffer who will reach out after you start your page with some ideas to get started!

The holiday season is a wonderful time of year. You can make it even more special for your friends and family by participating in one of the ways above.
