PEI residents love their Hens and a Rooster

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. (November 16, 2009) — Research conducted by international charity, World Vision found that when it comes to charitable giving, Islanders enjoy the idea of giving Hens and a Rooster at Christmastime. Last year, P.E.I. residents purchased more than 104 Hens and a Rooster from the World Vision Gift Catalogue to help children and families in developing countries.

“It’s amazing to see how popular some of the World Vision Gift Catalogue items are,” says Mark Griffin, Regional team leader for P.E.I. “For the past three years Islanders have picked two Hens and a Rooster as their gift of choice to honour their loved ones at Christmas.”

With thousands of gifts purchased from the catalogue, P.E.I. residents have picked everything from warm clothes for children to goats, emergency nutrition kits and school supplies.

With a choice of more than 80 unique gift giving ideas, the World Vision Gift Catalogue offers creative gift alternatives for even the most difficult people to buy for on your list.

“The catalogue is very popular with P.E.I. residents because it is a tangible way to give a meaningful gift during the holiday season,” says Price. “These gifts really change lives and P.E.I. residents take pride in knowing that their gift will bring hope for a better future.”
