Help End Hunger This Christmas

Dear Traveler,

Rick Steves: Why I support Bread for the World

If times seem tough for our friends and family now, imagine how tough they are for hungry and poor people.

To add meaning to the holiday season, every Christmas I raise funds for Bread for the World through my travelling friends and network at "Rick Steves' Europe Through the Back Door."

I’d love to send you a special Christmas package as thanks for a $100 gift to empower Bread’s work. This gift package was so popular last year that I want to offer it again so you too can get on board—and even share this challenge with your loved ones.

Here's my challenge to you this Christmas: make a gift of $100 or more and as a thank you, I'll match your gift (up to $100,000) and send you my European Christmas gift package OR an autographed copy of my book Travel as a Political Act. The European Christmas package includes: The European Christmas package includes:

  • My Rick Steves’ European Christmas DVD;
  • Our European Christmas coffee table book; and
  • A Christmas music CD featuring 20 of our favourite European carols.

Make your gift by December 10 and you’ll get everything in time for Christmas. I’ll happily pay for the cost of these gifts and postage so that Bread can use 100 percent of your donation for their work.

Rick Steves and Bread for the World work to end hunger

P.S. For every dollar Bread raises, it leverages $100 in terms of assistance and funding that is vital to hungry and poor people in our country and abroad. Assuming that ratio holds, if we hit our $200,000 target, that will mean that, together, we’ll generate $20 million of life-giving, hope-instilling funding for this cause.

Rick Steves Helped to Raise More Than $238,000 for Bread's Work

The year-end fundraiser for Bread for the World led by Rick Steves, a popular travel show host and author, was a huge success. Gifts given in response to Steves' request for donations surpassed the goal of $100,000 and totaled more than $138,000. Steves generously offered to match all gifts up to $100,000, which means $238,000 was raised in our fight to end hunger.

While Rick Steves' offer has expired, you can still make a contribution to Bread's work. Thank you for your support.
