Canadian actress Erin Karpluk visits World Vision projects
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Gemini Award winning star, Erin
Karpluk, is in Honduras this week to see the impact of World Vision
Gifts. She will meet families whose lives have been changed, thanks to
Canadians who decided to give a thoughtful present.
"I'm thrilled to meet parents and kids that Canadians have helped," says
Karpluk. "What I love about World Vision Gifts is the independence
these items provide. They are not a handout, as much as a way to help
people and communities reach their goals, so parents can provide a
brighter future for their children."
With more than 60 tangible donation items available, all of which make a
massive impact on the lives of children around the world, there are
thoughtful gifts that will help a cause close to your gift recipient's
heart. Popular World Vision Gifts include chickens, bee hives, helping
educate a girl and pre-natal care for a mother.
Karpluk is well-loved for her starring role as 'Erica' in the hit CBC
series "Being Erica", which aired in more than 180 countries. In 2009,
she received the Gemini Award for Best Actress, and the following
spring, she won the 2010 Leo Award for Best Lead Actress in a dramatic
series for her work on the hit show.
She divides her time between Vancouver and Los Angeles, where she is
working on several exciting film and television projects. Karpluk is
delighted to travel with World Vision to Honduras. Her dedication to
assisting women and children in crisis makes participating with World
Vision a natural fit.
World Vision Gifts is Canada's leading source of alternative gifts.
Canadians can choose a tangible donation to benefit a family or child
on someone's behalf, and give it to them as a gift. For more
