I recently asked my father in law what he would like for Christmas. His answer: World Peace. Hmmmmmmmm. Not an easy request to fulfill, but I think I have found something that will definitely warm his heart. World Vision Gifts. This is a wonderful organization that provides support to families and children in need.
“85% of all donations goes to programs helping children and families overcome poverty in nearly 100 countires.”
How does it work?
Make a monetary donation to the Maximum Impact Fund and receive a free gift in return. They have some great gift options, such as: necklaces, bracelets, ornaments and plush toys. You can also choose to give a sustainable gift such as a chicken or goat to a family in need (in the name of a relative, friend or coworker). This is a such a great way to help those in need and get a great gift for a loved one this holiday season. They provide a printable gift card as well. Check out this video to see how it works.
I was really excited to try out the beautiful Artisan Beaded Necklace from their catalogue. It instantly caught my eye.
Artisan Beaded Necklace: This glass-bead necklace was handmade in Thailand and can be worn several different ways — even as a multi-stranded bracelet.
Wow is this necklace beautiful! It comes as a long strand necklace which can be doubled up and worn as a necklace or twisted up several times and worn as a bracelet. I had been looking for a funky layering bracelet for a while and this one is perfect! All of the colors in the beads are beautiful and the craftsmanship is wonderful. I get c0mpliments every time I wear it. I feel so good when I wear this bracelet, knowing that in my small way I am spreading the word about this wonderful organization. I can’t wait to look through the catalogue and pick the perfect gift items for the people on my Christmas list.
“Please consider one of the unique and life-changing items from World Vision’s Gift Catalog this holiday season. The beauty of these items 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.With a financial contribution, the gift giver selects 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.
