I have featured World Vision in My Holiday Gift Guides since I started my blog. World Vision helps make our world a better place. With the needs being larger than ever, we need to help those in need, especially around the holidays. So if your thinking of helping out by donating to charity this year, please check out WorldVision.org first! Since 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative. Last year alone, more than 822,000 people were helped through funds generated by their Catalog.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. See more at: http://www.worldvision.org/about-us/who-we-are#sthash.KbjajJUf.dpuf
They work in nearly 100 countries, serving all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. They believe in a full solution to poverty and injustice. World Vision provides emergency assistance to children and families affected by disasters and conflict, partner with communities for long-term solutions to alleviate poverty, and advocate for justice on behalf of the poor. Motivated by our faith in Jesus Christ, we serve alongside the poor and oppressed as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people.
For a the nominal monthly fee of just $39.00, you can sponsor a child in need and their family too! Above is an 8 year old boy named Manicharan from India. You can scroll down on the page and find out about where he lives, that his birthday is coming up and what he enjoys doing! My husband and I spent four months in India back in 2006, and I can tell you first hand that children and families in India need our help. Click here if you'd like to sponsor a child.
If you don't want to sponsor a child, you can donate money to help purchase food, supplies, water, clothing, shelter, hunger, medical care and more. Plus, it's a tax right off for you!
I reviewed an African Soapstone Box. The hand-carved African Soapstone Box is a perfect place to store necklaces, rings and other trinkets. This ornate handmade gift is etched by talented artisans in Kenya who are using this sustainable resource to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. It's beautifully crafted! I have this gorgeous box on my night stand. I keep my rings inside of it while I'm sleeping.
