Brigade Fundraising Efforts for 2010-2011
Holiday Honor Cards
Wonder what to give the person who has everything this holiday season?
How about health care for a Nicaraguan villager?
When you donate through the Brigade Honor Card offer, you can give a donation in honor of a friend or loved one and will include a beautiful postcard that you can send to your friend explaining how the gift was donated in their name for those in need. Each postcard includes a photo showing the work of the Bucknell Brigade in progress.
*Honor Card designs now feature messages for the Holidays and Birthdays!
