Top Holiday Gift Idea for Small Spaces

AUSTIN, TX, August 21, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ — With the tea market growing 12% per year for the last 5 years, electric kettles will be the hot holiday gift in 2012.

It is offered in four different finishes including stunning Chili Red, Indigo Blue, Brushed Stainless Steel and Onyx, Chantal’s brilliant metallic black. It has a 52 oz. capacity and a Suggested MAP Retail of $79.99. The Ekettle is available at Bloomingdale’s.

‘Pass on the Gift’

n an unprecedented series of events on five continents, almost 5,200 families who are winning their own battles against hunger and poverty are preparing to help their struggling neighbors become self-reliant.

From Nepal to Uganda, from Kosovo to Ecuador, from Indonesia to Zambia, families in April will donate dairy cows, dairy goats, alpacas, and water buffalo, as well as bees, trees, and seeds, to their struggling neighbors.

In turn, the families who receive the donated resources pledge in time to also pass on the gifts – often the first offspring of their livestock – to yet more neighbors facing hunger and poverty.

In April, the families will receive livestock and others resources during approximately 250 emotional and poignant Passing on the Gift ceremonies hosted by Heifer International in almost 30 countries.
