This post is sponsored by World Vision. I was not compensated, but I did receive a box of handcrafted gifts in exchange
for this post. I am giving away another box of handcrafted gifts to one of my lucky readers. All opinions are mine.
Our family supports World Vision. It is a humanitarian aid organization that works with children, families and their communities worldwide to overcome poverty and injustice. World Vision serves the world’s most vulnerable people regardless of religion, race, gender or any other form of discrimination. While our family donates to World Vision programs throughout the year, our favorite is the World Vision Gift Catalog.
Each fall our family looks forward to the arrival of the new World Vision Gift Catalog. We love looking through it and seeing all the different ways we can send an alternate gift to family members. This gift catalog is filled with 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.
Gift Giving Made Easy
Do you have trouble finding a gift for someone who has everything? Do you want to give a heartfelt gift that will make both you and the recipient feel great? Then consider purchasing something from the 2016 World Vision Gift Catalog. We get things for grandparents and other relatives out of the catalog each year. Each person in our house picks out a gift for extended family members. My husband always picks out a Bicycle. My daughter and I prefer to pick Animals or Hunger items. After we pick out an item, we print out a card provided by World Vision to give them saying that an item was donated in their honor.
The World Vision Gift Catalog started in 1996 and it has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative. In 2015, more than 650,000 people were helped through funds generated by the Catalog. Want to see where your money goes? Check out this video from World Vision to learn how it works:
Give a Handcrafted Gift
If you want a tangible gift, there are handcrafted gifts available. The money raised from purchases of these handcrafted gifts goes to the Where Most Needed fund, which supports a variety of World Vision’s programs around the world. You can see me here in a few of these wonderful artisan items. The Royal Silk Scarf was woven by Ma Chau villagers in Vietnam. The weaving helps provide the villagers with sustainable income. The Turquoise Medallion Necklace and Silver Vines Cuff were both handcrafted in India. The beautiful bracelet is a result of once-mistreated jewelry makers banding together through fair trade practices to support their families.
I am hosting a giveaway for several handcrafted items from World Vision, including the scarf, necklace, and bracelet above. The giveaway will also include a Tree of Life Votive Holder and Upcycled Artisan Bowl, along with History’s First Coffee Blend. The fair trade coffee comes with an Olivewood scoop and African bag. This giveaway is open to people in the USA. Enter below.
