You saw my recent post about shopping the World Vision Gift Catalog and the beautiful scarf is enroute to the winner from the giveaway! I wanted to pop in with another update from them, about their upcoming Giving Tuesday campaign. On December 1st, 2015, the 4th annual #GivingTuesday will be in full swing and World Vision is partnering with Thirty-One Gifts to “help charitable donations make twice the impact.”
Basically every donation made by phone (call 1-888-511-6588) or online at Worldvisiongifts.org, World Vision will be matched by Thirty-One Gifts! They will donate one of their products, like a bag or blanket, to women and girls in need around the world, up to a total of $1MM worth of products! (See a few of my gift ideas from their site here and here). If you are not familiar with Thirty-One Gifts, they make life easier with lots of options to keep organized and have trendy and modern fabric totes, purses, bins, wallets, and so much more.
They have been kind enough to provide a tote to YOU! One lucky winner will get the Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote
This versatile tote is one of their top sellers. “With seven exterior pockets and a zipper to keep everything safe and secure, it’s the perfect bag to keep you organized on the go.” (Size: Approx. 10.75″H x 14.5″L x 6.5″D)
A few more details…
“Bags (like the one above) 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 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. Products donated to World Vision on #GivingTuesday through this partnership will be shared with communities in need so that women like Renathe are able to continue the important education they are providing.”
