(Portland, OR Oct 06, 2011 ) This holiday season, anything purchased from the Gifts of Hope Catalog from Medical Teams International is worth twice as much in saving the lives of 1 million women and children in 16 countries.
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous Medical Teams International donor, gifts purchased now through December 31st will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $200,000.
People buying from the catalog can not only give a gift to help save someone else’s life, but honor those they love by purchasing a gift in their name.
"The Gifts of Hope Catalog is a fantastic way to find a meaningful and long-lasting present for my family and friends this holiday season,” said Gloria Bennett. “The ability to pick from multiple gifts makes it easier to personalize for each person on my list and offers the bonus of knowing exactly how my contribution will make a difference."
The Gift of Hope Catalog includes descriptions of each gift including malaria survival kits for $30 and medicine that can provide care for 10 Congolese refugee women and children for $25. The catalog also features stories from volunteers that work in these countries and distribute your gifts to those in need.
