World Vision Gift Catalog {Thai Bracelet Giveaway}

Pinterest

One of my favorite Christmas songs is Give This Christmas Away by Matthew West and Amy Grant. The song talks about giving Christmas away- “it’s feeding the hungry”, “telling the Orphan they aren’t alone anymore”, and giving “someone hope beyond their wildest dreams”.

One organization that does this on a daily basis is World Vision. I’m so excited to share that they have created a gift catalog to help make it easier for people to “give this Christmas away”. The catalog offers over 250 gifts, the most affordable ones starting at just $16. You can give self-sustainable gifts to those in other countries and also to people right here where we live. Some of the gifts you can purchase include clean water, goats, food, and school supplies. You can visit “The True Spirit of Christmas Tour” Facebook page and follow the World Vision staff as they travel across the world this December to see the impact that goats, sheep and other gifts have on families and children..

Another option is to purchase a “two for one” gift from the catalog. 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.

One of the gifts in the “two for one” gift catalog is a beautiful hand crafted Thai bracelet. With a donation of $40 you receive a beautiful bracelet to give to someone and you have helped prevent sexual exploitation.

One reader will win a black hand-crafted Thai Bracelet
