the
uend: has a challenge for U

  This holiday season…
Ask for a different kind of gift

A gift to end extreme poverty
Extreme poverty is defined by the United
            Nations as…

living on under $1 a day
   You can’t even buy a cup of coffee for that in Canada.
That’s misleading…

          They aren’t living…


…they are actually dying every day from
        preventable causes…


            …from poverty
No guilt, just facts:

1.2 Billion (1 in 5) people live like that in
                  the world
               In our world
               In my world
               In your world
No guilt, just facts:

½ the people in our world live on under
              $2 per day


      More than 3 Billion people
$1/ day
No guilt, just facts:

Over 22,000 people will die from
       poverty today…

…and tomorrow, and every day

     And it is preventable
No guilt, just facts:

•$1 trillion spent on holiday retail
& wholesale in North America
•$750,000 thrown away daily on
disposable paper cups
•$40 billion is spent annually on
video games
So…

How much money would
 end extreme poverty?
according to the World Bank

$50 billion annually
    for 15 years
 if spent properly
That’s 5% of what we spend
 during the holiday season in
        North America


   1 out of 20 gifts
Shocked?


    It’s mind boggling!

So how can U make a difference?
How?
     If we all asked to receive
just one gift differently this holiday
               season…
How?
If Canadians alone committed to
just one $20 gift, we would raise

  $676,000,000
U have
the power
to choose.
Do you need another
‘coolest pair of jeans in the world’?

               Or…
…an education so she can feed her
family for years to come?
Do you need that new super-cool
     tech thing-a-ma-jiggy?

             Or…
…clean water for him for a Year?
We can put an end to poverty in our lifetime.

Would U
Give up a Gift this holiday
        season…

 …if it meant putting an
   END to poverty?
Ask your friends,
              ask your family,
              ask everyone…

To give U a different kind of gift this holiday
                   season
Take the challenge
