When it comes to gift giving it is easy to get overwhelmed. There are so many products to choose from. I know I like to give gifts that I know my loved ones will enjoy. I put a lot of thought into what they like and might not buy for themselves.
Recently I was introduced to World Vision.They are a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice. Working in nearly 100 countries around the world, they serve all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
I like the idea of giving a gift that also helps a community that needs help. The 2015 World Vision Gift Catalog contains more than 250 poverty-fighting gifts, ranging in price from $16 to $39,000, that improve the quality of life for struggling children and families in the U.S. and around the world.
The World Vision Gift Catalog has a great variety of hand crafted gifts to choose from.
Royal Silk Scarf – This gorgeous silk scarf adds color to the holidays and supports the needs of children and families worldwide. The luxurious silk is woven by Vietnam’s Ma Chau villagers, who receive sustainable income through their craft. $95
Balinese Multi-Strand Necklace – This beautiful, draped beaded necklace is handmade by Balinese artisans in a project that helps children in Bali receive an education. $85
I was sent the African Soapstone Box to review.
This box will be perfect to hold my jewelry. I love the turquoise color and think it is beautiful. The African Soapstone Box has some weight to as well. The unique design on the box is etched by talented artisans in Kenya who are using this sustainable resource to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
Since 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative. Last year alone, more than 822,000 people were helped through funds generated by the Catalog. The money raised from your purchase of these hand-crafted gifts goes to the Where Most Needed fund, which supports a variety of World Vision’s programs around the world.
