TORONTO, Nov. 21, 2011 /CNW/ - With gifts including peanut butter and piglets, bamboo and bees, heifers and hampers, seeds and clean water, CHF's fantastic Gifts That Matter make meaningful gifts for friends, family and colleagues.

The Canadian Hunger Foundation (CHF), one of Canada's longest standing international development organizations, runs the Gifts That Matter campaign in order to help transform the lives of people living in poverty, struggling with drought and famine, or rebuilding their lives following disaster. Canadians can make charitable gifts online for friends, family or colleagues. Best of all, the value of every gift donated is matched at least 3 to 1 by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA)!

"Gifts That Matter are life-changing for families in developing countries," says Brodie Bazinet, Manager of Annual Giving at CHF. "Gifts like goats, seeds, clean water, or training can transform how people live, and bring hope and opportunity to families struggling with poverty. This campaign is about empowering Canadians to make a real difference in the life of someone who needs it most, and then about sharing the warmth of that experience with others."
