Send a Meaningful Gift from World Vision for Giving Tuesday! (GIVEAWAY)

Today is Giving Tuesday -- a day to encourage people to focus on giving rather than getting. The Christian humanitarian organization World Vision is joining nearly 2,000 nationwide organizations to challenge Americans to take part in this new movement. But World Vision also has a unique initiative: to help those affected by Superstorm Sandy. Any gift of food, clothing, or school supplies for children in the U.S. given through World Vision’s Gift Catalog (www.worldvisiongifts.org) during the week of November 26 will be designated for their Sandy relief efforts. World Vision’s relief teams have been distributing much-needed supplies in some of the most vulnerable communities hit by this devastating storm on the East Coast.

A new World Vision Holiday Giving Survey, conducted by Harris Interactive, showed that fewer Americans plan to give a charitable gift as a holiday present this year. Wouldn’t it be great if we could change this statistic by spreading the word about Giving Tuesday? Here are some tips for participating in Giving Tuesday from World Vision:

Volunteer Virtually: Not everyone is able to take off work to physically volunteer, but you can volunteer virtually by donating food kits online through World Vision. Each kit contains enough food to feed a family of five for one day ($16 per kit).

Give a Meaningful Gift: Share the spirit of Giving Tuesday by giving a gift that can change a life. World Vision’s Gift Catalog has hundreds of gifts such as goats, fresh water wells, and life-saving medicines that can be given in the name of a family member, teacher, co-worker or child and help one of more than 825,000 people around the world who benefit from gift catalog items. Gifts range in price from $16 to $39,000, and there are more than 250 items online to choose from. After purchasing a Gift Catalog item, the person whose name the gift was given in will receive a special card describing the gift and its impact.

•Teach Generosity: Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity for parents, grandparents, and teachers to help children understand the importance of generosity and giving to others. World Vision’s Gift Catalog can be a helpful educational tool.

There are so many donation options on the World Vision site that I can’t possibly do them justice, but here’s a great example. For just a $25 donation to World Vision’s Maximum Impact Fund, you can help provide for the needs of children and families worldwide where resources are most desperately needed. Plus, with your donation, you can select a gift for yourself or a loved one, such as one of these adorable plush animals:



World Vision generously sent me samples of these three animals, and they are absolutely adorable. Made by Hasbro, they are super soft and safe for birth and up. Giving a World Vision donation along with one of these plush animals would be a perfect way to celebrate the birth of a new little baby in your family this year!

To learn more about World Vision’s Gift Catalog, visit www.worldvisiongifts.org or call (888) 511-6511. Since 1996, purchases from the catalog have raised more than $33 million that helped more than 825,000 people around the world!
