Noche Buena 2020- FAQS
Q: How Will My Gift Be Used?
We promise to use your donation in the most effective way possible. Your donation (child sponsors and one-time donors) will be pooled together to put a delicious meal on a child’s table on Christmas Eve. It will also bring together the community into a memorable thanksgiving and celebration of Jesus’ birth.
Last year, 87% of the Noche Buena donations were spent for the Noche Buena packs of all World Vision registered children, the special gifts pledged for sponsored kids and a simple Christmas party in the community. The remaining 13% was used for the processing of the donations, the delivery and distribution of the gifts, and the facilitation of the gift acknowledgment.
Q: What Is Included In The Noche Buena Gift?
The Noche Buena gift contains ingredients for spaghetti and fruit salad with the additions of canned goods, and juice for the entire family. In some poor communities, families expressed their preference for a pancit meal over spaghetti because it is easier to prepare and they make bigger servings out of the provided ingredients.
Q: When Is The Deadline For Sending The Noche Buena Gift?
We would greatly appreciate receiving your gift before December 18, 2020 so we can give it to children and their families before Christmas Eve.
But we are accepting donations until February 2021.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
