You Can Save Lives During 12 Days of Christmas

CHICAGO, IL (December 16, 2014) — Each year the PNC Wealth Management Christmas Price Index releases what purchasing every item in the song, “The 12 Days of Christmas” would truly cost. In 2014, the tab would have amounted to $27,673.22.

There is, however, a somewhat more affordable way of purchasing 12 days of gifts: CovCares style. For $6,710, it is possible to provide life-affirming, and life-sustaining gifts that demonstrate what true love is. The 12 days referenced in the song actually refers to the 12 days beginning with Christmas and following, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get started earlier.1216 sewing 12 days
