Published 12/22/2017 by Global Communities

There’s still time to skip the gift wrap this holiday season! Whether you’re looking for a unique way to honor a loved one or want to start 2018 with a spirit of giving, PCI offers multiple ways for you to go global with your generosity:

Turn Compassion into Action – PCI is dedicated to enhancing health, ending hunger and overcoming hardship by providing people around the world with tools and resources to transform their lives. This year, we impacted the lives of nearly 12 million people through programs in 16 countries spanning Asia, Africa and the Americas. Imagine what we can accomplish together in 2018 with your support! Are you ready to take action for impact?

Help a Newborn Thrive – Every year in Malawi, 18% of babies are born too soon and 14% are born too small. Many families and health care facilities lack basic supplies needed to ensure these tiny newborns get a healthy start in life. PCI’s Every Preemie – SCALE project has partnered with Alternative Gifts International to provide Newborn Comfort Kits, Mother Support Kits and Clinic Upgrade Packages. Help us give new meaning to Happy New Year!

Fight Poverty with Four Wheels – Whether it hasn’t been started in years or it’s taking up too much space in your garage, your car can help PCI drive meaningful and measurable change in partnership with communities at home and abroad. Fill out a form online or call 844-PCI-4-CAR and our vehicle donation program will help handle the rest. You’ll receive a tax benefit and PCI will receive 80% of the sale price. 

Donate Spare Change – Coin Up allows you to share a token of your appreciation with causes you are passionate about. Simply download the app, select “Project Concern International” as your favorite charity and set a monthly cap. Every time you make a purchase with your designated bank card, the transaction is rounded up to the nearest dollar and the “spare change” is donated to us. Coin Up today and see how every little bit adds up.

Shop with a Smile – AmazonSmile works just like the Amazon site you know and love, but it turns your purchases into donations. All you have to do is go to AmazonSmile, select “PCI – Project Concern International” as your organization to support and start shopping! Amazon will automatically donate a percentage of your purchases to PCI and you won’t have to spend an extra penny.

More than 15,000 companies will match the charitable contributions their employees make to non-profits like PCI through workplace giving programs.
