Holiday Giving Campaign

CHICAGO, IL - Lifeline Humanitarian Organization is pleased to publish the first photos of our 2017 Christmas ornament! Our ornament drive will be the first 2017 event specifically targeted to fundraise for our Annual Children's Christmas Drive that officially started on June 1, 2017. All proceeds from the Christmas drive will be directed to providing holiday gifts (clothing, shoes, toiletries) to the underserved children in Serbia's group homes, orphanages and institutions.

The Lifeline ornament is a custom designed, handmade, 24k gold plated, genuine cloisonné keepsake, available only through Lifeline. Each ornament comes in its own silk covered box to preserve it year after year for your holiday tree. The photo above shows each of the three sides of a single ornament, plus a photo of the ornament nestled in its protective case.

The ornament will be gifted to any donor who makes a targeted $50 (or higher) monetary donation to the Annual Christmas fundraiser. To make a donation to Lifeline's Annual Children's Christmas Drive 2017, please click this link:

Please note - Lifeline will be hosting a Christmas in July, ornament pick-up party/luncheon at the home of Melanie Sever at the end of July/beginning of August, 2017. We will send email invitations a few weeks before the pick-up date to everyone who donated to the Christmas drive with a minimum $50 monetary donation. We will be mailing the ornament gifts to all out-of-area donors at that time as well.

Thank you for your continued support of Lifeline Humanitarian Organization. We will be posting updates on our Annual Christmas Drive events regularly.

Please note: There is a limit of one (1) ornament gift per person/household for direct online donations to the Christmas fund received through the offer period. For example, a donation of $100 will not entitle the donor to 2 ornaments. This gift offer is not valid for other events that may be held by Lifeline during this period. Additional ornaments may be available for purchase at the end of the fundraising drive. Please ask if you can purchase and reserve an ornament for later pickup.
