Seva Foundation's Gifts of Service® Turns Your Compassion into Life Changing Solutions
BERKELEY, CA (November 29, 2012) – Come December, skip the long lines and steep price tags at the department stores and instead give someone a gift that matters — like sponsoring sight-restoring eye surgery for a child who is blind in Nepal, or providing a Native American youth with life-saving diabetes prevention services.
This holiday season, shoppers can reconnect with the true meaning of the season by sending Gifts of Service® from Seva Foundation to honor their friends and loved ones.
For nearly 35 years, Seva has celebrated compassion and embraced the connections we each share as global citizens. Working in many of the poorest communities around the world, Seva creates grassroots programs that build sustainable solutions to poverty.
“The holidays to me represent a time for giving — not just in material form, but in compassion and service,” said Jack Blanks, Seva's Executive Director. ”Our Gifts of Service program embodies this spirit and allows people to turn gift giving into a way to help those in need. Imagine being able to give someone their eyesight back! I can't think of a better holiday gift than that.”

working with diabetes patients, so she’s excited about the gift that brings wellness education to
Native American communities. And I love the 4-Pack Gift Cards, so I’m always ready for spur of the
moment gift giving. It’s perfect — something for everyone!"
