San Diego-based humanitarian organization launches 2012 gift-giving catalog to promote worldwide health and economic empowerment programs
November 17, 2011 (San Diego) -- PCI (Project Concern International) launched its 2012 symbolic gifts catalog, Gifts of Life. The catalog allows the public to give unique gifts that support PCI’s global programs and the people they reach in some of the most impoverished regions of the world.
The catalog is available online in order to browse and purchase gifts. Through the collection of unique and creative gifts, the public can shop online for gifts that will support PCI’s life-saving programs. Also, purchasers have the unique option of creating their own gift. Once gifts are purchased, buyers send eCards to their recipients to let them know a gift has been given in their honor.
For easy browsing, gifts are separated into three categories that represent the major categories of PCI’s programs: Gifts of Hope, Health, and Nutrition. PCI guarantees that gifts given will be sent all over the world to help their programs and the people they support. For example, one of the symbolic gifts is a Bolivian llama, which could be used to help carry crop loads and other products, made by families, to markets in order for them to create income for sustainable living. Another gift available is ensuring the safe deliveries of newborns and their mothers in Guatemala. With this gift, a mother will receive clinical care, services, counseling and education on health and nutrition, along with food and lodging during and after delivery.
We invite companies and individuals to share the link to the online catalog with their networks.  To learn more about PCI and its impact of global health and humanitarian work, please visit or please contact Annette Gregg, Senior Director of Marketing & Communications, at (858)279-9690.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary, PCI (Project Concern International) is a San Diego-based health and humanitarian organization, operating nearly 100 programs in 16 countries.  It is dedicated to saving lives and building healthy communities around the globe, annually reaching 5.5 million people in Asia, Africa and the Americas.  Funded by federal grants and private support, PCI has over a $35 million budget and nearly 600 employees worldwide.
