We have been told that money can't buy happiness, but it can at Ten Thousand Villages (TTV). Happiness, hope and even empowerment can be bought this holiday season with the purchase of a Living Gift at any of the 49 TTV stores across Canada. A $20 Living Gift will stock a women's fishery in India, providing families with much-needed income and nutrition, while a $300 Living Gift means a whole community benefits from a barnyard full of animals. "Living Gifts are the highlight of the season," says Don Epp, TTVs chief executive officer. "Gift givers and receivers are excited by presents that make a real difference, uplifting global stories become part of conversations, and the world becomes a little better." Living Gifts are available from Nov. 6 until Dec. 24 at TTV stores or online at TenThousandVillages.ca. Each Living Gift sold helps TTVs parent organization, Mennonite Central Committee, carry out important relief and development work. All donations are tax deductible.
