Here are some special details about what will be included in our Ikea Holiday Giveaway Extravaganza:
Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh My! IKEA Soft Toys are adorable creatures that are good at hugging, comforting and playing with the little ones on your holiday list. Ranging in price from $.49 to $19.99, they make a great stocking stuffer or featured present alike. For every soft toy purchased from November 3rd through December 24th, IKEA will donate $1 to UNICEF and Save the Children to help ensure the health, safety, protection and well being of children around the world. Last year, the soft toy program raised $4 million.
Greeting Cards. According to The Greeting Card Association, more than 85% of Americans send greeting cards during the holidays. Giving someone a UNICEF holiday greeting card is the perfect way to keep in touch with family and friends, while simultaneously helping someone in need. Purchase UNICEF holiday cards at IKEA stores and 100% of proceeds will go directly to efforts that help children in need worldwide. UNICEF holiday gift cards come in boxed choices; from 10 up to 20 cards per box. Prices range from $10-$20.
Pillow Talk. Gift friends and family with IKEA PS GRINDTORP cushions covers hand-made by women working together to grow their own cottage industry businesses in impoverished villages in rural India. These colorful pillows are the result of social responsibility programs that include zero tolerance for child labor, an early education school program and an inoculation program for babies and moms-to-be. When you give this gift, it provides thousands of women with the economic growth they need to take care of themselves and their families. The IKEA PS Grindtorp cushion covers cost $14.99.
Home is Where the Heart Lives. IKEA believes that Home is the most important place in the world and has partnered with some of the nation’s leading photo-journalists to capture the myriad of ways in which Americans work, play, learn and interact at home in a beautiful coffee table book – America at Home. This intimate book can also be personalized by uploading a digital photo of your family or home to www.americaathome.com. 100% of the proceeds from this book will be donated to Save the Children’s Early Steps to School Success program, promoting literacy in young children in the US. The “America at Home” book is available at IKEA stores for $39.99.
