Holiday shopping? Skip long lines and stress, and purchase a Gift of Compassion instead!

With the holiday season upon us, the search for the perfect gift is on. If you haven’t found it yet, do not panic! ABC Home & Planet Foundation offers a unique holiday gift that provides the opportunity to share joy and gratitude with your loved ones.

ABC Home & Planet Foundation offers “Gifts of Compassion,” which allows you to make a fully tax deductible gift in honor of your loved one. Each Gift of Compassion is a donation to a visionary non-profit organization providing critical services to underserved communities. Each organization has been carefully chosen and screened for its transformative impact by the ABC Home & Planet Foundation. Calvert Foundation is one of those organizations, and is again participating in the Gift of Compassion Program this year.

Gift recipients receive a printed 100% post consumer recycled paper card about the gift in a one-of-a-kind silk sari pouch made in India, which can double as a lovely tree ornament or sachet for jewelry.

What greater gift can be given to a loved one than offering a safe haven for an orphaned child? A birth kit for a rural mother in Nepal? Malaria nets for pregnant women in Africa? New sheets for the formerly homeless in New York? Literacy lessons for an Afghan girl? Make this holiday season memorable by inspiring meaningful change in the world. Gifts of Compassion are available for purchase at
