Everyone wants his or her life to matter. We want our actions to impact others positively and leave a lasting legacy. The start of a new year is the perfect time to look at ways to turn that goal into a reality.
Here are some ways you can change the lives of vulnerable children and families through Buckner in 2017, making this year the best year of your life.
Host a Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls® shoe drive. Wherever you are, you can minister to children around the globe by collecting new shoes and donating them through Shoes for Orphan Souls to be given to children in need through Buckner and its partners worldwide.
Your gift of a pair of shoes could be the first step in transforming a child’s life by giving them health, access to education, hope and opportunities for further ministry. Click here to learn more.

Support Buckner financially. Since 1879, Buckner has depended on the generosity of our supporters. No administrative fees are taken from your gift, which means 100 percent of your gifts go directly to those Buckner serves. You can start by giving as little as $10 a month as a Voice Partner. Or become a part of our Great Heart Society, which recognizes donors who invest $10,000 or more annually to any Buckner ministry. We believe in helping our donors realize their goals and fulfill their call to be good stewards of their resources.
