World Vision Giveaway

With Thanksgiving and the crazy shopping day of Black Friday coming up this week, we are reminded again about how much "stuff" Americans have and think they need. I can't imagine what most of the world population would think of our Black Friday. They are happy to just meet basic needs, and I think the least we can do as a country with so much stuff is share a little of our plenty with those less fortunate.

That is why it has become a tradition in our household to pick out several items from the World Vision catalog to give at Christmas time to those who have real needs. We have already had so much fun looking through the gift guide, learning about what is needed, and trying to decide what to give this year. My kids love the idea of giving chickens and ducks to keep producing food for months and months.

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.

As you start your holiday shopping, consider a life-changing gift that gives back all year long. The World Vision Gift Catalog offers more than 250 items that help fight poverty and save lives here in U.S. and around the world. With a financial contribution, you can select one of the 30+ handcrafted gifts that can be shared with a loved one and at the same time help a person in need. 

One of my favorite handcrafted gifts, that we graciously received from World Vision, is the Fair Trade Coffee Set. This set includes whole bean, fair trade coffee from Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Costa Rica blended by and is delivered in a bag hand-sewn by local women with a hand-carved olivewood scoop. It is a beautiful set, and would make a wonderful gift!

To get everyone excited for the wonderful handmade gifts from World Vision, we are having a giveaway for one of you to win the same set as pictured above!
