In the heart of New York City at Bryant Park, World Vision is bringing charitable giving to life Nov. 25-27 through the Give-back Gift Shop, an interactive pop-up shop where thousands are learning how one simple gift can light up an entire community.
Visitors to the shop discover meaningful gifts from World Vision’s Gift Catalog and opportunities to shine bright this Christmas season through generosity. The Give-back Gift Shop also showcases many interactive experiences including live animals, assembling hope kits for women in the U.S., a virtual reality experience that takes you to Kenya to meet Cheru, a water walk where you can carry a jerry can filled with more than 40 pounds of water to understand the global water crisis, and a 180-degree photo booth.
Emmy Award-winning actress Patricia Heaton visited the Give-back Gift Shop on Giving Tuesday last year and is returning again this year. She says, “Americans are very generous people, but it is hard sometimes when you look around the world and you think, ‘How could I possibly help?’ But you can, because World Vision is there to do the work that you want to see get done.”
