Are you searching for a more meaningful gift this holiday season? At IKEA, you can purchase a holiday present for the children in your life while helping kids around the world in need of a quality education.
Now through December 29, 2012, for every IKEA Soft Toy or children’s book you buy, the IKEA Foundation will donate one euro ($1.30) to education programs worldwide.
This year´s Soft Toys for Education campaign, aims to provide quality education to children living in poverty in developing countries.
Since the campaign started in 2003, donations from the annual IKEA Soft Toy Campaign have totalled €47.5 million (over $61 million), helping 8 million children in more than 40 countries enjoy their right to a quality education.
Atlantic Station has partnered with IKEA to donate half of the toys collected in store to Atlanta-based City of Refuge, a charity who’s services span multiple areas of need from food, clothing and shelter to job training, placement, housing, healthcare and education.
IKEA Soft Toys, which include stuffed animals, finger puppets and books, range in price from $.49 – $19.99 and are available in all IKEA stores!
