Have you heard of Giving Tuesday?
In the midst of the retail frenzy following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday provides an opportunity to make an actual difference in the lives of others by focusing on charitable giving. On Dec. 1, 2015 – the 4th annual #GivingTuesday – World Vision will partner with Thirty-One Gifts to help charitable donations make twice the impact.
Giving Tuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

World Vision Match
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 $1M worth of products for women and girls in need around the world.
Why the Need?
The Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote 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 above, 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.
