Give a Gift from World Vision That Helps Families Around the World (GIVEAWAY)

When you’re doing your holiday shopping this season, I hope you’ll consider purchasing a gift that “gives back.” When you select one of 36 items from World Vision’s Gift Catalog, you’ll help to make a difference for a family living in poverty. For example, when you get this beautiful Artisan Beaded Necklace…
…you’ll be contributing to World Vision’s Maximum Impact Fund, which enables them to answer specific, urgent needs of children and families. World Vision was kind enough to send me one of the beautiful Artisan Beaded Necklaces from Thailand. I love the colorful glass beads. I also love the long length of the necklace (44 inches around). You can wear it long, make a double-stranded necklace, or even wrap it around your wrist several times for a bracelet! Another gift you can get that benefits those in need is this ornament set:
These are handmade Zakale wire and bead ornaments from Nairobi, made from recycled materials by a group of Kenyan artisans. Imagine presenting these unique gifts to a loved one, plus letting them know that a gift has been given in their name to help bring people out of poverty.

World Vision has also launched “The True Spirit of Christmas Tour” on Facebook! When you visit them at www.facebook.com/truespiritofchristmas, you’ll see the impact that your gifts can make on families and children around the world. Show your support by adding your favorite animal to your profile picture, or send a virtual gift to your friends! Watch this brief video to learn more about the tour:

More than 800,000 people around the world were impacted by gifts through World Vision’s Gift Catalog last year. I hope you’ll consider helping that number grow even larger this year! Purchase a gift at www.worldvision.org and make a difference in the lives of others. To order by phone or request a print catalog, call toll-free: 888-511-6511.

    I would donate to the clean water fund. We live in a country that goes potty in what most of the rest of the world calls clean drinking water. We are so blessed as a nation, we should be a blessing to others.
