Save the Children and IKEA - Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway


If you're looking for a holiday gift that is unique and helps make a difference in people's lives, consider purchasing from the Save the Children catalog. Save the Children is an organization that helps create lasting change in the lives of children in need.


When you choose a gift from the 2010 Gift Catalog you'll give joy and lasting change to a child in need. Every child deserves happiness and this is a way of showing you care. There are different product categories in the catalog and a free personalized card is directly sent to your honoree featuring the exact gift item chosen in their name. One purchase that you can make is for a soccer ball for $30, which will be given to children in impoverished areas where equipment is rare. Or you could purchase an emergency evacuation backpack for $20 to give kids the strengh to overcome disasters. The list of gifts to help goes on and on.



IKEA has partnered with Save the Children to offer adorable stuffed soft toys under $10. For every toy sold, 1 euro (approximately $1.35 US dollar) will go to Save the Children and UNICEF to extend and start new children's educational programs in 22 countries.



Win It!
One person will win two IKEA soft toys (to be chosen by sponsor).
