SKIP THE USUAL AND GIVE A UNIQUE GIFT TO YOUR LOVED ONE
BOSTON, Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- International relief and development organization Oxfam America is offering romantics a unique way to express their love this Valentine's Day. What better way to show you care than to give a gift that will change a life? Let your loved ones know how sweet you can be by giving honey bees that will help small-scale, rural farmers or donate a dozen chicks that produce eggs, generate income, and improve nutrition for a family. They receive a card explaining the good your gift will do, and somebody in need gets exactly what they need.
"This Valentine's Day give a life-changing gift through Oxfam America Unwrapped," said Stephanie Kurzina, vice president for development and communications at Oxfam America. "Favorites such as a dozen chicks or honey bees go a long way in fighting poverty and hunger around the world while giving you a unique way to show a loved one you care."
Oxfam America's Unwrapped catalog offers items that symbolically represent the organization's lifesaving work, and each purchase is a contribution toward Oxfam's many programs that help people living in poverty throughout the world.
Oxfam America is offering a selection of more than 70 gifts at a range of prices, including Valentine's Day favorites such as goats, books for kids, or a grove of "miracle trees." All gift contributions are general donations to support Oxfam America's mission of fighting poverty, hunger and social injustice in over 90 countries around the world. Gifts are fully tax-deductible.
