The Holiday Season is Upon Us!
This holiday season Palms for Life has come up with some unique ideas for those who wish to spread the joy of the season to the less fortunate.
Who needs another salad bowl?
The holidays usually means gathering with family and friends. At your next holiday party or get-together instead of accepting hostess gifts or holiday presents, why not ask guests to donate to your favorite charity in lieu of traditional boxes of chocolates, bottles of wine or… another salad bowl? Your guests will welcome the opportunity to make a meaningful gift to a charity that you trust. Ask your guests to visit www.palmsforlifefund.org and to donate by clicking here.
Planning a wedding?
Here are two unique ways for you to enjoy your special day and spread some of your joy to the impoverished of the world.
Favors for your Guests: In lieu of traditional favors for your guests, you can add special meaning to your wedding by making a donation to Palms for Life Fund. It’s a great way to thank your guests for coming while improving health and education programs in the developing world. To announce this thoughtful gesture, we’ll send table cards to be displayed on your wedding reception tables. These cards will show your appreciation for your guests’ attendance while highlighting the donation you made in their honor. For more details, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wedding Gifts: Instead of receiving another picture frame, another blender, or a 3rd set of coffee cups, why not send 10 children to school for a whole year or donate a Braillewriter to blind orphans? Ask your guests to donate to Palms for Life in honor of your wedding by clicking here.
Get rid of old stuff and benefit Palms for Life directly through eBay!
List your books, cameras, DVDs and more on eBay and help the world’s poor! List almost anything of value for sale on eBay Giving Works, and donate some or all of the proceeds to Palms for Life. Your listings will stand out from other items on eBay with a special Giving Works icon, and you can donate as little as 10%, or as much as 100% of your eBay sale price. Plus, all donations are tax-deductible. Click here to learn more.
Tees for Life
We have designed a very hip and elegant yet simple tee shirt highlighting the various aspects of poverty that Palms dedicates itself to. This new series of tees is done in partnership with a young designer, Conspiracy Eight. All net proceeds from the sale of the tees will go directly to Palms. We are currently accepting orders! Please click here.
GivingExpress from American Express

With warm regards,
Hannah and the “Palmistas”
