With Giving Tuesday coming up in just three weeks, General Secretary Nora Sanders has formally accepted Moderator Jordan Cantwell’s challenge to give something meaningful through Gifts with Vision. Now that Gifts with Vision options for 2016–2017 are available, she is encouraging all United Church of Canada leaders and members to consider choosing Gifts with Vision as a way to honour friends and relatives throughout the year.

“Most of us think of Gifts with Vision as we plan for Christmas, but you can use it year-round for birthdays, anniversaries, or any special occasion,” says General Secretary Nora Sanders in a new video message. “There are so many choices that offer ways to support innovative, educational, and community projects in Canada and right around the world. Gifts with Vision offers gifts that make a difference in people’s lives.”

Giving Tuesday is on November 29, 2016, and all Canadians will be encouraged to donate to charities of their choice. This year, with 29 gifts that will make a significant difference in communities across Canada and in other areas around the world, Gifts with Vision offers meaningful options to those who will be donating. To order gifts, please visit giftswithvision.ca or call 1-844-715-7969. Gifts with Vision supports The United Church of Canada’s Mission & Service–supported programs and partners.
