Here is our very first post for our Holiday Gift Guide. All through November and into December we will be posting great gift ideas. Please be sure to stop in often to see what we have found. World Vision's Gift Catalog is a gift that will give to others and keep giving, not just for a day.
I am going to get on a soap box for a minute. Today, we are too spoiled. Most people have what they want and more. When we go to purchase something, we want it the flavor we want, or the color we desire, and if it isn't we are unhappy. As a nation we have more than we need and are raising our children that way. The minute a new game console comes out, they have to have it. A new style of clothing, we get rid of what we have, even though there is nothing wrong with it, and move on to the new. Now, I am not saying everyone does this, I am just saying overall we are raising a nation of unhappy, dissatisfied people. I will step down now.
For $19 you can give a rabbit.
For $100 you can give a goat and two chickens.
You can also choose amounts to give clean water, medical care, clothing and shelter, education and many other things.
Teaching your children about giving should start early, and there is no better time than the holiday season. Your child could choose an amount to donate, or you could give as a family unit. Here are a few ideas compliments of World Vision of ways to give:
I would encourage my neighbors here At the Fence to stop by the World Vision website and take a look through their catalog. You might also want to follow them on their social media pages.
From World Vision:
Let's get the focus off ourselves and what we will receive and help someone else. Also lets teach our children that it is not all about me.
I am including pictures of the Prosperity Cinnamon I received from World Vision. One neighbor will also receive a cinnamon box. I have been smelling it ever since it arrived. Fresh cinnamon just smells so good. Please take some time to visit the World Vision website and then enter the giveaway.
