Seva Foundation's Gifts of Service(R) Turns Your Compassion into Life Changing Solutions
BERKELEY, Calif., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Come December, skip the long lines and steep price tags at the department stores and instead give someone a gift that matters --- like helping a blind child in Nepal see again, or training community health workers in a remote village in Guatemala.

For 30 years, Seva Foundation has celebrated compassion and embraced the connections we each share as global citizens. Working in some of the poorest communities around the world, Seva creates grassroots partnerships and programs that build sustainable solutions to poverty and disease.

shoppers, Seva also offers Gifts of Ser
