Celebrate Don Bosco’s Feast Day – And Our Anniversary

Each year on January 31st, we pay special tribute to St. John Bosco, founder of the Salesian order. In 2022, we also mark 75 years in service to impoverished children and their families around the world.

Just as Don Bosco transformed the hopes and futures of thousands of disadvantaged youth during his lifetime, we at Salesian Missions are committed to doing the same. Every day, we share the stories of precious children who need lots of love and a little help to turn their lives around. And your generous response helps fund the work of nearly 30,000 Salesian missionaries in more than 130 countries around the world, who help make this happen.

As we look forward to our next 75 years and beyond, we are grateful for your ongoing support … and pray that God will bless you with abundance!

Help Us Carry Don Bosco’s Torch

In honor of this significant milestone, we’re asking compassionate friends like you to join our 75th anniversary campaign.

It’s an ambitious goal—and it’s one worth striving for. Because the value of those donations has the potential to exceed $1 million in life-saving assistance for poor children and families around the world.

Since 1947, Salesian Missions, with caring people like you by our side, have changed the lives and futures of more than three million needy children and their families. With you by our side, we can continue to deliver hope and decent futures to so many more precious lives.

Every $1 you can give today helps us deliver $14 worth of tangible goods. These are vital supplies, donated to us by trusted humanitarian partner organizations. From nutritious food and vital medicine to educational books and supplies—and so many things in between—you can help bring health, dignity and most of all, hope. We need you to be our hands reaching out to the poorest of the poor, delivering this sustenance.

Thank you for participating in this meaningful anniversary celebration. We can think of no better way to honor Don Bosco’s legacy!
