Double the Impact with World Vision and Thirty-One Gifts this #GivingTuesday

unnamed (1)

In the midst of the retail frenzy following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday provides an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others by focusing on charitable giving. On Dec. 1, 2015 – the 4th annual #GivingTuesday – World Vision will partner with Thirty-One Gifts to help charitable donations make twice the impact.

On #GivingTuesday, every donation made by phone (1-888-511-6588) or online ( to World Vision will be matched by Thirty-One Gifts – a direct-selling company offering totes, purses and more – with a donation of one of their products, such as a tote bag or blanket, up to a total of $1MM worth of products for women and girls in need around the world.

This year, we invite you to feature the partnership between World Vision and Thirty-One gifts on your blog leading up to #GivingTuesday. We will send you a Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote – similar to those being sent to women and girls around the world – for review, and are offering a second identical tote as a giveaway. Winners may get free embroidery on their totes and Thirty-One will fulfill prize distribution for you.

Why the Need?

Bags like the one you will receive have recently been distributed to volunteers in Burundi who use the totes to carry materials for educating families about malnutrition. Before receiving the totes, volunteers like Renathe Kabageni, pictured below, carried all of their materials and equipment by hand. The simple gift of these tote bags preserves teaching materials and makes it easier for volunteers to visit each home.

Products donated to World Vision on #GivingTuesday through this partnership will be shared with communities in need so that women like Renathe are able to continue the important education they are providing.

I received a  Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote ($35 value) from Thirty-One to review and I love the size and quality!
