Mission Statement: Our mission at YonderStar.com is to be the premiere provider of Nativity and Creche items on the Internet. With an emphasis on excellent, personalized service, we shall conduct all aspects of our business in a Christian manner. We believe it is the responsibility of all businesses to operate with minimal or no negative impact upon the environment. We will run Yonder Star Christmas Shop with the best interests of our planet Earth foremost in mind.

Yonder Star Christmas Shop donates 10% of all profits to The Nature Conservancy and Food for the Poor.

Stewardship: We believe it is the responsibility of the people of the world to act as stewards on behalf of those less fortunate, and the ecosystems of which we are all members. We believe all citizens of the world should care for the land around them, no matter how great or small it is. We carry this belief with us at our own locations. At our home offices, we are working to restore native flora and fauna in order to nurture the return of wildness as it once flourished. Our efforts have seen some success. It is our hope to continue to improve our immediate landscape while minimizing our impact. At the bottom of this page is a partial list of the species that we host here on the grounds of Yonder Star Christmas Shop.
