Uses for Angels & Fund-raising Ideas

Uses for Angels

Although many angels end up on Christmas trees, there are other
uses to consider that represent your support for children and families in southern Africa.

1. Angels make great baby gifts for new mothers, either the regular style or ones in pastel hues.

2. Clip angels (above) are small momentoes that represent big impact. For 30 or more at $2 each (plus postage if required), you can order ribbon colours of your choice and a card insert to your specifications. One clip angel can be mailed inside a greeting card at the standard postage rate.

3. Wedding couples can donate a sum to AIDS Angels on behalf of their guests, and receive a certificate to place near the guest book as an explanation or acknowledgement. In addition, clip angels can be given out as favours or table decorations.

4. Several angels can be applied to a wreath for decoration.

5. A gift package or a wine bottle can be dressed up with an angel.

6. We offer angels with magnets, and angels as barrettes.
