In the midst of the retail frenzy following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday provides an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others by focusing on charitable giving. The 4th annual #GivingTuesday will take place on December 1, 2015, where World Vision will partner with Thirty-One Gifts to help charitable donations make twice the impact.
On #GivingTuesday, every donation made by phone (1-888-511-6588) or online (Worldvisiongifts.org) to World Vision will be matched by Thirty-One Gifts with a donation of one of their products, such as a tote bag or blanket, up to a total of $1MM worth of products for women and girls in need around the world.
Why the Need?
Bags like the Thirty-One utility toe have recently been distributed to volunteers in Burundi who use the totes to carry materials for educating families about malnutrition. Before receiving the totes, volunteers carried all of their materials and equipment by hand. The simple gift of these tote bags preserves teaching materials and makes it easier for volunteers to visit each home.
Products donated to World Vision on #GivingTuesday through this partnership will be shared with communities in need so women are able to continue the important education they are providing.
You can visit World Vision on Facebook or keep up with the events through the hashtags #giftcatalog and #givingtuesday.
