This holiday season, help us recognize and celebrate the tremendous impact that all gifts, even the smallest and simplest ones, can have.



Donate! Don't Wait!

Dear friends,

Every year, we are reminded of the power that comes from the smallest and simplest donations and acts of service. While we love receiving generous donations and working with well-known companies, what truly inspires us most is you. You and your seemingly insignificant contributions. You and the silent sacrifices you make to help and serve others. You, and the power YOU have to change a life.

This holiday season, we invite you to join us in healing leprosy and fighting its stigma by giving in whatever way you can. Whether that be a monetary donation, an awareness campaign, sponsoring a student’s education, or inviting others to give, your contribution is vital to the success of our mission. 

Please join us in making this season full of extra cheer and healing for those who are suffering. With a little extra effort and creativity, we can create a massive international impact and bring some extra light and healing into our lives, our communities, and into the lives of others. 

With all our love, 

Provo UT Team

“I have worked closely with Rising Star Outreach for many years and have experienced the power of renewing hope and transforming the lives of persons affected by leprosy. Every dollar holds the potential to change a life forever. I believe in this mission, and that’s why I have chosen to match each donation made to Rising Star Outreach’s Healing for the Holiday campaign, up to $100,000. Your individual donation will change a life; together, we will change the world.”

- Anonymous Match Donor

In honor of Rising Star’s 20th anniversary, we are challenging YOU to invite 20 of your friends to donate to our Healing for the Holidays campaign!


If 20 or more of your friends donate, not only will you change countless lives, but you’ll also get a special thank you gift from us!

Thanks to generous donors, EVERY DONATION you make will be matched, dollar for dollar.


This Thanksgiving weekend, you have the opportunity to make a real difference; thanks to a generous donor you can sponsor a student’s education next year for HALF the regular cost! That means only $180 for a year of sponsorship instead of $360.*

Not only will you have the opportunity to give the gift of education, you’ll also receive a welcome box wrapped in holiday-themed wrapping paper with a limited time gift inside. This is an excellent gift to give this Holiday Season! Give the gift of hope!

Use the link and instructions below to take advantage of this incredible opportunity!

This deal runs from Thanksgiving to the end of Cyber Monday (November 25 – November 29) and only applies to new annual sponsorships.

1. Head to the sponsorship sign-up page

First, you’ll need to go to the sponsorship registration portal. Click anywhere on this section or on the button below to take you there!

2. Select the "annual" option

Once the page loads, you’ll see the option to select “$30/month” or “annual”. To get the  special deal, select the “annual” option. 

3. Select the Thanksgiving Deal

Now you’ll see the option to select “$360/yr” or “Thanksgiving – $180”. Select the “Thanksgiving” option, then fill out the survey and personal information to sign up!

* Our donor will match the other half of the cost for your first year, because they believe this education and connection is just that important! This special offer only applies to new annual sponsorships. Subsequent years you will be charged the regular rate of $360 per year per student. You always have the option to cancel the sponsorship to avoid future charges, but we hope that you find the connection and relationship worthwhile and continue to sponsor.
