World Vision Gift Catalog & Thai Bracelet Giveaway

What do you get the person that has everything?  Or perhaps you have a person on your list that you would like to honor, but vehemently tells you they don’t want a gift.  Those are just the type of people that are perfect to give Gifts That Give Back.  The World Vision Gift Catalog allows you to honor your recipient but also to share the true spirit of Christmas with a child in need!

The catalog offers more than 100 poverty-fighting gifts starting at $16, that can be purchased in anyone’s name.  Each of the 35 pages in the catalog overflows with gifts, stories and inspiring photos.

“The global economic crisis and food shortages are pushing millions deeper into poverty, I know that people are feeling strapped, but for as little as $25 someone can donate a pair of chickens to a family.  Those chickens, as they lay eggs, grow and multiply can change generations of lives in a community.  There are plenty of other choices in the World Vision Gift Catalog that are both inexpensive and tremendously powerful in impact.” – Devin Hermanson, World Vision Gift Catalog National Director

Since the World Vision Gift Catalog was first introduced in 1996, new gifts have been introduced each year.  Its popularity as a gift-giving alternative has grown substantially with more than 100,000 purchases made last year.  Goats remain the most popular item – over 50,000 goats were given to families around the world.

Give a Gift, Change a Life.

World Vision is providing a handcrafted Thai bracelet (actual product received, may look different than what is pictured, World Vision retains the right to substitute it for a different design) for one of my blog readers, as a thank you for considering the World Vision Catalog as a gift giving opportunity this year, and sharing about it with others.
