The True Meaning of the Holidays with World Vision

World Vision Catalog

While everyone is prepping for the biggest shopping days of the year, I wanted to share a little reminder of what the Holidays are really about and something small that you can do that can make a tremendous impact on so many children.

I know you have probably heard about World Vision before, maybe you got their catalog in the mail like I have? They’re unique in their approach to charity because they offer something incredibly different than most, they offer life. Life in the form of water, of animals that not only provide food but sustainability for families and communities. Little things like baby chicks that one day grow up and give a little girl the ability to go to school. This is a chance to teach your children about what the Holiday’s really mean.

Gifts to the World Vision Gift Catalog Maximum Impact Fund are used where resources are most desperately needed to help children and families in struggling communities here at home in the U.S.A and abroad. You have the choice of contributing 1 of 36 Maximum Impact items that you can give to a loved one and at the same time help a person in need. Here are a few items from the Maximum Impact Fund that you would receive for your donation.

  • Artisan Beaded Necklace: This glass-bead necklace is handmade in Thailand and can be worn several different ways — even as a multi-strand bracelet. 
  • Eco Cold Cup: This popular 16 oz. BPA-free tumbler comes in handy when on the run. Every sip is a reminder of those who’ve been helped.
  • Veggie Tales “Incredible Vegetables” DVD: Heroic adventures and veggie fun for the family movie night! This newest Veggie Tale DVD is an action adventure that teaches kids how to conquer fear through a faith-based message.
  • A set of plush toys – Gertie Goat, Chuma Chick and Pallu Pig: Gertie, Chuma and Pallu are available exclusively through World Vision and represent farm animals that are donated to children and families around the world and provide a steady supply of nutritious food and the surplus can be sold for extra income.
World Vision Animals

I love the idea of teaching children about giving and how the little plush animals not only offer a donation towards the Maximum Impact Fund, but also represent the gifts that World Vision offers to families across the world. It provided us with the ability to teach our children on inRandom how a single goat, a chicken or a pig could impact the lives of families across the world. You can learn about how each of their gifts impact children by visiting their Pinterest Page.

We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The needs shown here reflect World Vision projects at the time of writing, and the suggested donation amounts are based on surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance where it is needed most within that category or to address a similar need.

World Vision is very easy to navigate. It shares with you their work, how to sponsor a child, ways you can give as well as get involved and it also has a section called My World Vision that becomes your little window into the world that you are helping.
