Spread the joy of Christmas far and wide. Give from your heart and bring the spirit of a truly authentic Christmas to your friends and family this year.

Joy to the World is CRS’ version of an "Alternative Christmas Gift-Giving Drive" – a growing movement to bring focus on the blessings of Christmas and provide ways for people to honor loved ones by giving gifts that gives twice – once by helping the poor overseas and also by honoring those on your gift giving list.

Through a Joy to the World, alternative Christmas gift-giving drive, you and your parishioners or classmates will give the gift of clean water, education, food, and healthcare to the poorest and most vulnerable people around the globe, bringing Joy to the World!

A gift that spreads joy to others in need can give us and those we honor a great deal of joy!
