Gift vouchers available to help young people attend WYD

.- World Youth Day organizers are giving parents, grandparents, teachers and friends the chance to give young people a life changing gift for Christmas, a voucher to attend World Youth Day being held July 15-20 2008 in Sydney.

The voucher could cover a portion or the entire pilgrim registration fee.  According to the WYD08 website, “The top tier registration for an Australian pilgrim costs $395 for the entire week and includes accommodation, free public transport, all meals, a pilgrim backpack chockful of items, priority access to events and emergency cover.”

This gift will give the young person an opportunity to gather with thousands of other youth from around the world to see Pope Benedict XVI.  WYD 2008 will be the first visit of the Holy Father to Australia.

Organizers are expecting 300,000 people to attend the WYD events with 125,000 arriving from abroad.

The Gift Vouchers are available on the WYD08 website.
