Make a big difference with a little piggy on #GivingTuesday
by Emily Enders Odom | Presbyterian News Service
LOUISVILLE — While pigs may not have been among the first of God’s creatures to welcome the Christ child, they still play an important role in this season of giving.
That’s because the Presbyterian Giving Catalog — in calling attention to the importance of piglets toward creating a sustainable source of income for families in need all across the world — is offering a special thank-you gift to all #GivingTuesday piglet donors.
#GivingTuesday, a global day of giving which falls this year on Nov. 28, is a day when Presbyterians are once again invited to be radically generous on behalf of a world in need.
Anyone who celebrates the spirit of #GivingTuesday this year by giving one or more piglets will receive a Little Piggy Tote Bag as a thank-you gift from the Presbyterian Giving Catalog.
“And the best part is you don’t have to wait to give,” said the Rev. Wilson Kennedy, associate director for the Presbyterian Giving Catalog. “You can do it right now and it will count as your #GivingTuesday gift!”
The Presbyterian Giving Catalog, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, is filled with a wide variety of gifts — like the humble pig — that provide real and positive impact around the world.
For ease of use, the Giving Catalog is available both in print and online, in English, Spanish and Korean. The new 2023–2024 Giving Catalog offers a total of 43 items — large, small and in between — to fit every congregation’s missional interests and every individual’s budget.
Making a $40 gift of a piglet through the Presbyterian Giving Catalog, whether for yourself or to honor a family member or friend, will help to make a lasting difference in the lives of people all around the world. Gift-givers can request that a card be mailed to them for each Giving Catalog item ordered.
“When sold at market, a pig can be the very thing that helps a family through times of struggle,” said Kennedy. “We are pleased to offer Presbyterians this important way to make an impact in the lives of others without breaking their Christmas budget.”
Supplies are limited, so give a few piglets today and let this Little Piggy serve as a reminder of the lasting difference you are making in the lives of people all around the world!
