BOSTON (April 27, 2012) –International relief and development organization Oxfam America is teaming up with Kristin Davis this Mother’s Day to show appreciation of moms in our lives by giving back to others with a gift from Oxfam America Unwrapped.
“The mothers we know and love deserve more than one day of praise for the incredible contribution they make toward improving our world,” said Ms. Davis. “This year, give the mom in your life a gift that will continue changing lives for years to come.”
As an Oxfam Ambassador, Kristin Davis has seen firsthand the impact these gifts have on mothers and their families. A water jug ($18) can help a family store and transport clean drinking water; a vegetable garden ($30) can help a mother jumpstart a small business and provide security for her children; or you can help restore a pre-school ($35) so a mother can comfortably send her children off to grow and learn in safety. There are over 70 life-changing products to choose from at OxfamGifts.com.
“What better way to honor a mother in your life than to help a family in need,” said Stephanie Kurzina, vice president for fundraising and communications at Oxfam America. “With a gift from Oxfam America Unwrapped, you can say ‘thanks mom’ in a truly meaningful way.”
Oxfam America’s Unwrapped catalog offers items that symbolically represent the organization’s lifesaving work, and each purchase is a contribution toward Oxfam’s many programs that help people living in poverty throughout the world. All gift contributions are general donations to support Oxfam America’s mission of fighting poverty, hunger and social injustice in over 90 countries around the world. Gifts are fully tax-deductible.
