ABC Home & Planet Foundation is encouraging consumers to actively build a better world by aligning their spending choices with their values this holiday season via “Gifts Of Compassion.”
Two unique Gifts of Compassion benefit V-Day programs:
- Shelter for an abused Egyptian Women- Provide food, shelter and counseling services to an abused Egyptian woman and family at the Arab world’s first comprehensive domestic violence shelter- $100.
- Protection from Female Genital Mutilation – Offer 1 year of shelter, food, school and training for a 12 year-old Maasai girl who refuses to submit to the ritual of female genial mutilation- $1,000
Through ABC’s new offering, holiday shoppers will have the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of children and families—both in America and around the world. Gift givers receive an embroidered silk pouch, fashioned from a vintage sari, containing a “Gift of Compassion” certificate that fully describes the gift, indicating that a special gift has been made on behalf of the recipient.
