Holiday Gifts That Save Lives!
With the holidays approaching, many of us want to do something special for the people in our lives. In that spirit, many people combine their desire to make the world a better place with the best wishes they send to family and friends. Some of us make gifts to charities in addition to, and often in place of, a sweater, DVD, or book. As you consider your own gift giving and holiday greetings, consider making a donation to support HealthRight’s health and human rights programs.
Gifts of any amount support the efforts of our local partners around the world to provide critical, sustainable services to their own communities. Here are some of the things you can “purchase” for your loved ones:
$200 Provides a year of food support to an HIV-affected family in Hanoi, Viet Nam. Click here.
$75 Trains a volunteer physician to help survivors of torture find safety and asylum in the U.S. Click here.
$50 Distributes 125 insecticide-treated bednets to women, children, and families in remote Western Kenya, helping to reduce the risk of malaria, one of the leading killers in the region. Click here.
$25 Enables HealthRight and its partners to provide HIV outreach and testing to 15 children and youth living on the streets of St. Petersburg, Russia. Click here.
Best of all, by supporting HealthRight, your gift is not only an expression of holiday spirit – it is an investment in building the capacity of communities to provide care and support to those who need it most. It’s easy to give a meaningful holiday gift and send a message that you care.
Here's how it works:
• You select the item(s) you want to give.
• You add a personal note and the address for us to send them a holiday card.
• The card goes to your friend or loved one.
• Your donation goes to those who need it most.

Please make your gift as soon as possible to ensure that cards arrive in time for the holidays. Thank you for helping to save lives here in the United States and around the globe!
Gifts represent possible areas where your donation will be used. All gifts will be used where your help is needed most.
