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. On Dec. 1, 2015 World Vision will partner with Thirty-One Gifts for the 4th annual #GivingTuesday 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 – a direct-selling company offering totes, purses and more – with a donation of one of their products, such as a tote bag or blanket, up to a total of $1 million worth of products for women and girls in need around the world.
Why Tote Bags?
Volunteers in Burundi who use the totes to carry materials for educating families about malnutrition. Before receiving the totes, volunteers like Renathe Kabageni, pictured below, 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.
Since it began in 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative; featuring over 100 ways to improve the lives of children through gifts such as: clean water, food, medicine, education, job training and small business loans, among others. Gifts range in price from $16 to $39,000 and can be made in a loved one’s name. Last year alone more than 822,000 people were helped through the Catalog.

Thirty-One Gifts was founded on the principle of helping women and is known for their charitable heart. In 2012 they founded a philanthropic initiative called Thirty-One Gives and to-date has donated more than $80 million in cash and products to nonprofit organizations that empower women and girls and support families. The product we are giving away, from the Thirty-One Gives line, gives back as well with a donation of 31 cents from every sale going to a philanthropic fund. It also delivers an inspiring message on the inside with encouraging words for women. For more information, visit their website at www.thirtyonegifts.com.
