With the holiday season fast approaching that means for a lot of us we will be doing tons of holiday shopping for several different friends and family members. During this holiday season each year I like to teach my daughters the importance of giving and helping others through things like donations and charity events. Teaching them to have a caring heart is something that I find important. One way you can help fight poverty is by shopping the life-saving gifts from the 2014 World Vision Gift Catalog. With more than 250 items, ranging in price from $10 to $39,000, both online and in the print catalog you can help improve quality of life for women, children and families in the U.S. and around the world.
The Catalog gives shoppers over 100 ways to improve the lives of children through gifts like clean water, food, medicine, education, job training and small business loans. When you make a donation to help where it is needed most you can receive handcrafted gifts that are perfect for holiday baking or entertaining.
With your gift of $65 or more to where most needed – which provides for the unique needs of children and families worldwide – you will receive this beautiful set of two hand-carved olivewood serving spoons delivered in a gift bag of African fabric hand-sewn by local women. The serving spoons are made to benefit orphans of the Kamba tribe in Kenya. Each one is unique – just like the children they help.
Now every time I use these spoons I will remember the meaning behind them and they are a great conversation pieces when I am entertaining with friends.
It is so easy to purchase one of these meaningful gifts.
- Choose a gift to donate in someone’s honor (such as a goat or chickens)
- Personalize your free card
- Enjoy the satisfaction of giving a life-changing gift
Since it began in 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative; more than 844,000 people helped someone through the Catalog in the last fiscal year alone.
