Last Minute Holiday Shopping Made Easy
‘What You Order is What They Get’
Richmond, Va. – Dec. 16, 2009 – Stressed because you haven’t finished your holiday shopping and the lines are growing longer? ChildFund International has good news.
You can shop from the comfort of your home and give unique and meaningful gifts that will change the lives of children around the world.
ChildFund’s Gifts of Love and Hope catalog offers gift ideas that will fit any budget. Better yet, the items you choose will never be back-ordered or sold-out, no shipping or handling fees will be attached and you can be assured that every gift ordered is the actual gift that will be delivered to those in need.
“There are hundreds of life-saving gifts that will not be re-gifted or end up in neighborhood yard sales,” said Mike Pressendo, vice president of Marketing and Strategic Resources. “Every gift you choose is tax deductible and will have a lasting impact on the lives of deprived, excluded and vulnerable children and families worldwide.”
Try these innovative shopping ideas that start at just $7:
Eco-friendly green gifts, such as fruit trees for family orchards or vegetable seeds for community gardens that will provide good nutrition for children.
Clean water will save children from water-borne diseases and give them the opportunity to go to school instead of walking miles for water. A water pump or well will benefit a whole community.
Educational toys, books, games, computers, desks and chairs will give children living in poverty the chance for a quality education and hope for a brighter future.
A set of weaving materials, a sewing machine, and carpentry or masonry tools will provide economic independence for youth to transition into adulthood.
