Looking For A Last-minute Gift? Think Funky Chickens!

Attention: web editors / on-line journalists

TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Looking for the perfect #lastminutegift that is fun to give and will change the world this holiday season? Think chickens!  Two Hens and a Rooster is the most popular present from World Vision's Gift Catalogue. As a charity gift you make a real donation on behalf of a special person on your gift list, and you get a card or ecard to give them detailing the difference being made in their name.

You can order the ecard option anytime - so even if you're in a last-minute rush on Christmas morning you can still find a meaningful gift to give.


Canadians have given hundreds of thousands of chickens through the World Vision Gift Catalogue - which has an incredible impact. This infographic shows the potential difference made over five years alone.


Jet Black ( @thejetblack)  and Dave Schram ( @thedaveschram), fan favourites from The Amazing Race Canada, had a chance to see first-hand how the gift of chickens are helping people in Brazil. Watch their adventure on YouTube.


'It is amazing how the gift of two hens and a rooster just keeps on giving: eggs, chickens, nutritious food and even income. The World Vision Gift Catalogue has great presents for the big-hearted person on your list - and the impact will last well after the holiday season is over. ' - Andrea Janzen, World Vision Gifts
