Medical Teams International (MTI) is participating in a new national movement called #GivingTuesday, marking November 27th, 2012 as a day to give back. “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” have become cultural traditions in the United States, and this is an opportunity to bring attention to the importance of charitable giving.
The organization is encouraging shoppers to consider purchasing a gift from the Medical Teams International Gift Catalog which offers gifts that can transform the health and lives of people in some of the most distressed regions of the world.
This year’s catalog features an assortment of gifts including dental care for children in Latin America, malaria nets and medicines to protect moms and babies in Uganda, and cooking stoves for families in Guatemala. Each gift, ranging from $15-$130, goes directly to support a specific project or program offered by the humanitarian relief organization.
With the holidays approaching, the gift catalog is an excellent way to honor a loved one. Medical Teams International will mail a gift card with a description of the purchased gift and the impact it has on those in need. Downloadable gift cards and e-cards are also available for those who purchase through the catalog online.
The Gift Catalog is available online at www.medicalteams.org/catalog. Print copies are also available by calling 800.959.4325 (TEAM).
