World Vision and Gift Giving



Hey neighbors!

Wondering what to give this year?  Here is a gift that you not only give to someone, but by doing so you are helping someone else.  You will help change the life of children living in poverty.  World Vision has come out with their catalog for 2014.


The World Vision Catalog gives you over 100 ways to help improve lives.  Gifts range from $10 - $39,000 and can be made in a loved one's name.  You can use this as an opportunity to teach your child about giving to others.  Go through the catalog together and choose a gift to send together.




Here are a few facts from World Vision:
This is the 19th edition of World Vision's Catalog
There are more than 250 items online at www.worldvisiongifts.org
In 2013 more than 350,000 animals were donated.  Goats are the most popular animals to give.  Last year more than 67,000 goats were purchased by donors.
Those who want to give a tangible gift can choose one of the handcrafted gifts.  Donors who donate this way can choose to receive a free gift along with their donation to Where Most Needed.


I received the Fair Trade Coffee Set.
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 delicious 12-oz. whole bean coffee set. Delicious flavors from Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Costa Rica blended by OneCup.org are delivered in a gift bag of African fabric hand-sewn by local women. Also included is a hand-carved olivewood scoop, crafted to benefit more than 200 orphans of the Kamba tribe.




We did use the coffee.  After grinding the beans, using the scoop of course to get them out, we made a cup of coffee.  If you like your coffee strong, this is for you!





Take minute to check out the World Vision website and consider supporting what they do by giving a gift or maybe two.  You can also find them on Facebook - HERE and Twitter - HERE.  Also to find out more about World Vision and their mission click - HERE.

World Vision will be sending the winner of this giveaway the same set I received.  Winner must reside in the USA.  Gift item will be shipped directly to your U.S.-address at the end of the campaign, or no later than January 1, 2015. (We cannot ship items outside of the U.S.)

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy the giveaway!

Here in our small neighborhood we have several elderly people and young families with kids---many are struggling. We have a community garden. We will be starting the drives for warm clothes, heaters, and blankets soon. We regularly contribute to our local food pantry. It is heartbreaking that World Vision includes Poverty in the United States.
