This is the 3rd year that I have been honored to partner with World Vision to help promote The World Vision Gift Catalog. The World Vision Gift Catalog offers more than 250 items that help fight poverty and save lives here in US and around the world. With a financial contribution, donors 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. I love the fact that you can get a gift for a loved one and give to someone in need at the same time. If you have that hard-to-buy-for person on your list you can even purchase things like goats or chickens in their name and help feed a family instead of spending money on a gift just for the sake of buying a gift.
The gifts you can give fall into several categories:
- Clean Water
- Clothing and Shelter
- Emergency Aid
- Gifts that Multiply
- Girls and Women
- Handcrafted Items
- Medical Care
- Orphans and Widows
- Poverty in America
I love that you can choose what you want your money to go to or if you just want to help there is a “where most needed” category too. Purchasing gifts from The World Vision Gift Catalog is a great family project. Many families collect spare change all year long to donate to a charity at Christmas time, sending a gift through The World Vision Gift Catalog is a great family project that you can continue year after year.
The World Vision Gift Catalog Giveaway
One reader of The Mom Maven is going to win the ornament set pictured above. The set is available through The World Vision Gift Catalog with your gift of $150 or more to the Maximum Impact Fund — which provides for the unique needs of children and families worldwide — you will receive this beautiful set of handmade Zakale wire & bead ornaments from Nairobi. Zakale crafts are made from recycled materials by Kenyan artisans, who received a series of installment loans from World Vision to grow their business and lift themselves out of poverty. When requesting the ornament set, please note your gift is tax-deductible less the fair market value of $30.
Ornament sizes vary by animal (giraffe 4″ x 1½”, elephant 2½” x 3″ & water buffalo 2 7/10 ” x 2½”).
The giveaway ends at 12:00am on November 18, 2013 and is open to US residents only. The winner will be chosen by Rafflecopter and notified by email. The winner has 48 hours to claim their prize.
Disclosure: I received a set of ornaments as a thank-you for sharing The World Vision Gift Catalog with my readers. All opinions are 100% mine.
