‘Catch a piggy by the toe’ by Dec. 31!
by Emily Enders Odom | Presbyterian News Service
LOUISVILLE — As the Dec. 31 deadline for 2023 charitable gifts draws near, the Presbyterian Giving Catalog is urging all prospective donors not to let that little piggy get away!
Anyone who chooses to ‘catch a piggy by the toe’ before the end of the year by giving one or more piglets through the Presbyterian Giving Catalog will receive a Little Piggy Tote Bag as a thank-you 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.
“When sold at market, a pig can be the very thing that helps a family through times of struggle by creating a sustainable source of income,” said the Rev. Wilson Kennedy, associate director for the Presbyterian Giving Catalog. “We are pleased to offer Presbyterians this important way to make an impact in the lives of others without breaking their Christmas budget.”
Making a $40 gift of a piglet through the Presbyterian Giving Catalog, whether to honor a family member or friend at Christmastime or as an individual charitable contribution, 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.
“Because supplies are limited, we encourage you to give a few piglets today,” added Kennedy, “and to let this Little Piggy serve as a reminder of the lasting difference you are making in the lives of people all around the world.”
GIVE your gift of one — or a few — piglets by Dec. 31!
