Honor gifts keep giving

Kathy Abraham believes that the best gift for someone who has "everything" is a gift in their name to IOCC.

“Sometimes you just don't know what to give a person,” said Ms. Abraham, an IOCC supporter from Grand Rapids, Mich. “What do you do? Instead of giving them a gift they don't need, you can make a donation that could change someone else’s life.”

Giving an honorary gift is the perfect way to recognize a friend or family member’s birthday, anniversary, graduation or other momentous celebration. For each donation received, IOCC will send your designated recipient an honorary greeting card in your name.

Your honorary gift will show how much you care for family and friends, while giving hope to people served by IOCC throughout the world.

Memorial gifts are an established tradition in the Orthodox faith. For each donation received, IOCC will send a beautiful memorial card in your name to your designated recipient.

These gifts honor the memory of a loved one and comfort family and friends during their time of loss. You will also be giving help and hope to victims of poverty, natural disasters and war. Through an agreement with IOCC, the monks of St. Gregory Palamas Monastery in Ohio remember the departed in their prayers during the first 40 days. They will also enter the name of the departed in the Monastery Diptychs, to be commemorated every Memorial “Saturday of Souls” throughout the year.

“What better way to honor someone who has lived a full life and been such a blessing to others,” Ms. Abraham said.
