TAX DEDUCTIBLE CHF CHARITABLE GIFTS MATCHED 3-TO-1 BY THE CANADIAN
INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AGENCY (CIDA), QUADRUPLING CANADIANS' GIFTS
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."
