Double the Impact on #GivingTuesday
So you’ve cooked an awesome meal for your whole family and you’ve conquered Black Friday shopping. You’re probably getting ready for Cyber Monday or Cyber Week but did you know you can Double the Impact on #GivingTuesday by shopping with World Vision and Thirty-One Gifts? In its fourth year, Giving Tuesday provides an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others by focusing on charitable giving.
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 $1MM worth of products for women and girls in need around the world.
Where The Donations Are Going!
Thirty-One Gifts sent me a Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote – similar to those being sent to women and girls around the world. They 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.
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 you are receiving, 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.
