SEATTLE, Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- This Giving Tuesday, Thirty-One Gifts and World Vision are partnering together once again to double the impact to those in need. The company will match every donation to World Vision on November 27th with up to $2 million in product, helping families around the world with items to keep babies warm, deliver medical supplies, and keep girls in school.
"It has been incredible to watch the partnership between Thirty-One Gifts and World Vision grow and expand over the years," said Jennifer Hawley, Senior Director for Corporate Engagement at World Vision. "We look forward to many more years of working together to help the most vulnerable, wherever they live."
"We're honored to be involved with World Vision for the fifth year in a row," said Wendy Bradshaw, Executive Director of Community Affairs at Thirty-One Gifts. "We've been very pleased to see our products used to assist people who are in need around the world – whether it's survivors of a natural disaster, refugees, or children in poverty. It's our pleasure to help more individuals and families in need everywhere through our donation match. We are hopeful many people will double their donation through this match on Giving Tuesday."
This is the fifth year the two organizations have partnered together on Giving Tuesday to spread generosity during the holiday season. Since this partnership first formed in 2014 , Thirty-One Gifts has donated over $39 million in products and cash to the humanitarian organization.
Giving Tuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a day devoted to charitable giving, volunteering and advocacy, in response to the consumer focus of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
This year, independent consultants, leaders, and the owner of Thirty-One Gifts will be celebrating November 27th by traveling to New York City to participate in World Vision's Give-back Gift Shop in Bryant Park by sponsoring the Hope Kits visitors can create to help women in need and by visiting some of the locations where the kits will be distributed. World Vision's Give-back Gift shop gives visitors a chance to step into the pages of World Vision's holiday Gift Catalog and see how they can delight loved ones with a unique gift that will light up the life of a child in need.
The Gift Catalog began in 1996 with a handful of humanitarian gifts. Today, the catalog gives shoppers more than 250 tangible ways to improve the lives of children and their communities. Gifts range in price from $16 to $50,000. Last year, more than 146,000 people donated more than 310,000 items from the Gift Catalog that helped families in need around the world.
