Disclosure: World Vision sent us a sampling of their artisan gifts in exchange for sharing about this wonderful opportunity.
2017 World Vision Gift Catalog
Every year when the Christmas season comes along our family is always looking for gifts to give that make a difference. This year is no exception. That’s why I was thrilled when World Vision asked me to partner with them to help spread the word about the 2017 World Vision Gift Catalog.
One of the things we love about this catalog is that you can give life-changing gifts to a child and/or family in need. You can also give these gifts in honor of a family member (perfect gift for the family member who has it all). Here are some of the great things you can give:
- clean water
- disaster relief
- hunger relief
- live stock
- and more!
World Vision’s Most Needed Fund
When a donation is made to World Vision’s “Where Most Needed” fund, donors can choose from different items to receive as a meaningful memento of their gift. Here are some of the beautiful gifts we’ve given and received over the years:
The Heaton Hope Bracelet ($100) – This year, everyone’s favorite TV mom, Patricia Heaton, has partnered with World Vision to design the Patricia Heaton Hope Bracelet. The name was purposely chosen to encourage people to feel hopeful about our world and to give hope, through generosity, to those in need.
Vietnamese Tote ($100) – Disabled Vietnamese women gain independence by creating these beautiful hand-embroidered purses.
African Soapstone Box ($85) – Talented artisans bring raw stone to life with etched designs and hand dyed finishes that showcase modern African creativity and provide a sustainable way out of poverty.
Charm Necklace ($100) – Made by a gold and silver plating specialist in India, the unique and elegant charms make this necklace a subtle statement piece.
Infinity Scarf ($75) – This fashion-forward accessory is made by artisans in India who are trained in the loom industry to attain skills and a sustainable livelihood.
Wraparound Ring ($55) – A vibrant, adjustable ring with aqua and blue chalcedony stones set in metal, made by female artisans in India.
Regardless of which beautiful artisan gift you choose, you can rest assured that you are making an impact on a life that needs it. It not only feels great to give your loved ones a gift made with love, it feels even better to know that your hard earned money is helping fulfill the call to support God’s people in need.
