Will I receive the Bibles I'm ordering on this site?
No, your gift of Bibles is for other people around the world who don't have their own copy of God's Word.
How can I order multiple cards to send to family members this Christmas?
You can request this at the end of the payment process in the "Additional Information" box. Simply indicate which card(s) and how many you would like, and we will send you the cards. To receive cards before Christmas, please place your order before Dec. 10, 2019
Can I purchase multiple gifts with the same order?
Absolutely. After you add the first gift to the gift basket, click on "Continue Shopping" if you would like to add another gift. Plus, each gift can be dedicated to someone special with its own card.
If I donate to a specific need, will my money actually go toward that category?
Yes, your donation will be directed to the category you have given to. We have designated each category with a code so we will know where your gift should be directed to. We do everything we can to make sure your wishes are honoured when it comes to your donations. The only exception occurs when a specific project's need is fulfilled. In that case we redirect your donation to another area of need.
When will I receive a tax receipt for my gift?
The Gideons issues acknowledgments monthly, but issues the official tax receipts in February.
Why are the costs different for certain Scriptures?
The cost associated with printing Scriptures depends on a number of factors, including how many are being printed, what kind of materials are being used, where they are being shipped to, and whether they are full Bibles or just New Testaments. The Gideons' goal is to purchase and place Scriptures anywhere in the world for as little as $3.00, but the reality is that some low quantity Bibles cost more than that to produce.
How long will it take for the cards to be shipped?
All orders are processed in 1-2 days and are shipped ground mail. Please place your orders before December 10th for the best chance of receiving your cards before Christmas, as Canada Post delivery times are longer during December.
What are the additional charges for my orders, such as taxes and shipping?
We do not add any taxes or shipping charges to orders.
What is a Bible Gift Catalogue?
This catalogue empowers you to directly impact someone's life. The “gift” you bless them with is the Bible—God’s Word, in a format that’s just right for them.
As you flip through the pages, you’ll find some gifts you connect with personally. Maybe you have a heart for the persecuted church in India, or for impoverished communities in Latin America, or for people in hospital waiting rooms. Now you can reach those people with God’s Word!
Here's how it works. First, you choose your gift—let’s say it’s 25 Spark magazines for kids in Moldova, and 30 Esperanza (“Hope”) magazines for Latin American churches to use in evangelism. Next, you’ll turn to the order form at the back and write those quantities in the corresponding rows. Then, you’ll add up your total (in this case, $75 + $90 = $165) and fill in your payment information.
When you return that form to us, we’ll process your donation, and soon 25 children in Moldova and 30 people in Latin America will receive a copy of God’s Word, likely for the first time in their lives—because of you! Each Bible gift you choose will be shared by a local individual or church, and can go on to bless entire families and communities.
As you look through these pages, prayerfully consider who you can impact this Christmas. Christ alone can change lives from the inside out with His perfect love. That’s how you change the world—by telling the world about Jesus, and letting Him take care of the rest.
