ChristmasFuture Foundation: New Online Gift Card Offers Environmental Alternative for 2008 Holiday Season

Green giving helps eradicate extreme poverty

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2008) - An innovative website offers consumers a new way of giving that helps eradicate extreme poverty in developing countries and reduces the environmental impact of the holiday season.

ChristmasFuture allows givers to email or give a charitable gift card to their family and friends. Gift recipients can use the gift card to support development projects that are helping communities climb out of poverty in a lasting way. Project updates are provided online, in the form of blog posts, videos, and photos. Gift cards are simple to purchase at

Giving through the ChristmasFuture website also lowers the holiday environmental footprint by decreasing the amount of materials and packing associated with gifts, reducing transportation requirements, and using already existent tools (computer and internet connection) to give and receive.

People giving through ChristmasFuture can feel great about helping to change the world...for good.

All projects on ChristmasFuture's website are part of holistic plans to help communities climb out of poverty in a lasting, sustainable way. 100% of donated funds are directed to these goals.

During the 2007 holiday season, people used the ChristmasFuture website to refocus $92,000 towards ending extreme poverty.
