Family gatherings and community festivities may not be possible this year due to COVID-19, but we can still keep the spirit of togetherness intact this holiday season. To generate some much-needed hope and connection during these tough times, check out five easy ways to safely spread goodwill with PCI, a Global Communities Partner.
Grant a Wish
The challenges of 2020 have highlighted more than ever our shared responsibility to one another. Recognizing this, we asked program participants and staff across the globe to answer one question leading up to the holidays: What is your wish for the world? From hunger-free homes and inclusive classrooms to peaceful, healthy communities with clean air and water, their responses reinforced the notion that a brighter future for all requires collective compassion and action. To answer that call, become a PCI Wishgiver this December and know that whatever contribution you make will be matched to double the impact.
Shop with a Purpose
Avoiding crowded stores and buying gifts online this year? Make sure to use AmazonSmile as a simple and automatic way to turn every purchase into a donation for PCI. All you have to do is go to smile.amazon.com, designate “PCI – Project Concern International” as your organization of choice, and start shopping! Every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will help support children, families and communities around the world battling extreme poverty, hunger and health crises.
Use Facebook to Fundraise
Facebook offers an easy way for you to fundraise on behalf of PCI and play an even bigger role in helping us create a ripple effect of hope this holiday season. With just a few clicks, you can create a campaign to help us enhance health, end hunger, overcome hardship and advance women & girls worldwide. Simply set a goal for the amount you’d like to raise, a deadline for your network to donate, and share why PCI is important to you.
Spread the Word
Beyond the shopping and opportunities to donate, we also encourage you to share updates on the life-changing work PCI is carrying out around the globe. An easy way to do so is through social media. Check out our feeds on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn, and spread the word to your friends and family to help us gain supporters. At PCI, we witness magic happen every day in our programs, and we want you to have a window into those moments of transformation.
