World Vision Giveaway

The ultimate gift to give this Christmas is a gift that keeps on giving. One of my personal favorite ways to do this is through World Vision.



For the last couple years, our family spends hours and days looking through the World Vision catalog, reading about each way we can give and deciding who we want to help that year. My son loves learning about each way we can give, and it makes him just that more grateful for all that we have.

The beauty of the items in the catalog is the two-for-one benefit they provide: 1) a meaningful and affordable gift for a loved one; 2) proceeds that make a difference in the lives of children and families living in poverty in the U.S. and around the world.

While you may not need to spend hours or days looking through the catalog, you will for sure want to take a look either online or through a mailed catalog. With a financial contribution, you select one of 36 items that can be given to someone on a holiday gift list and at the same time help a person in need.

This year, we decided to give ducks, help young girls get educated and give a mother and newborn baby a survival kit - all gifts that will just keep on giving. I keep thinking how those small gifts are going to make such a huge difference in people's lives! Giving those gifts in honor of our relatives who live far away, World Vision sends them a card to let them know how that gift keeps on giving.

Whether you want to give to the Maximum Impact Fund and receive a free gift or give specific gifts in honor of someone else, head over to World Vision and make a difference today!

Also, make sure to check out their "The True Spirit of Christmas Tour" on Facebook. For the third consecutive year, World Vision staff will be traveling across the world this December to see the impact that goats, sheep and other gifts have on families and children.

Today, we are giving away (1) Thai Bracelet to (1) winner! This is a handcrafted bracelet made in a project that helps protect vulnerable girls from exploitation. This is one of the free gifts you could also receive from a donation to World Vision.
