International (MNN) — How did you celebrate Christmas?

It is quickly becoming a tradition for many families to give outside their family circle during the Christmas season–sharing the Christmas spirit with people in need all round the world. If you wanted to participate in something like this but ran out of time, it’s really not too late.

Open Doors USA has a gift catalog detailing various needs around the world and helpful ways to address them. For instance, you could send Bibles to be smuggled into restricted countries where children have never heard about Jesus. This project is a focal point for Open Doors.

Open Doors recently reported that 2014 was the worst year for Christian persecution in recent history. But you can be a part of helping the persecuted stay strong in their faith or even reach out to those who don’t know Jesus.

Check out ways you and your family can help as you look ahead to 2015.
