Sustainable Gifts that Keep on Giving

(News Release) With the holidays just around the corner, many people are beginning to wonder what their holidays will look like. The holidays are for giving, after all, but for some individuals, the funds for survival are barely there and their needs are great.

Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights, a Chicago-based non-profit which helps people who are threatened by poverty or danger improve their lives and realize their human rights, knows this need too well. That is why Heartland Alliance has decided to continue its popular Hope for a Hurting World Gift Catalog during this holiday season.

By replacing traditional holiday gifts with a gift from Heartland Alliance, individuals and businesses can help those who are struggling not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year. The catalog is a way for people to make a real difference in the communities in which they live.

Gifts start as low as $15 for a gift of a blanket and pillow to bring comfort and security to a child living in poverty. Other options include $30 for prescription medication for a person experiencing homelessnesss; $100 for an infant care kit; and $150 for a job training course. There are also gifts specifically geared for children to help other children. There are 43 different options for gifts through the catalog ranging from $15 to $550 each.

A charitable gift made through Heartland Alliance's gift catalog offers hope and meaning to disadvantaged families, especially women, children, and others struggling to survive. Each honoree will receive a personalized note card acknowledging the generous gift and every gift is tax-deductible. Last minute shoppers can purchase gifts online and an e-card will be sent through email.
