Give a Meaningful Gift with World Vision...Review & FLASH Give Away!


I have been chattering a lot about the holidays lately and great gift ideas.  While I think all of that is fun and exciting I also want to stress how much I believe we should help those in need.  Sometimes it is hard to know where to give, how to narrow it down or what causes are reputable.  For the past few years,  I have been working to get the word out about World Vision. In case you are unfamiliar, let me offer you some background information....


The World Vision Gift Catalog Maximum Impact Fund are used where resources are most desperately needed, to help children and families in struggling communities around the world. With a financial contribution, the gift giver can select one of 36 Maximum Impact items (a few are listed below) that can be given to a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.

Below are items I think would make for wonderful gifts that, in turn, help someone around the world with a desperate need. 

- Artisan Beaded Necklace: This glass-bead necklace is handmade in Thailand and can be worn several different ways — even as a multi-strand bracelet.

- Eco Cold Cup: This popular 16 oz. BPA-free tumbler comes in handy when on the run. Every sip is a reminder of those who’ve been helped.

- Veggie Tales "Incredible Vegetables" DVD: Heroic adventures and veggie fun for the family movie night! This newest Veggie Tale DVD is an action adventure that teaches kids how to conquer fear through a faith-based message.

- A set of plush toys - Gertie Goat, Chuma Chick and Pallu Pig: Gertie, Chuma and Pallu are available exclusively through World Vision and represent farm animals that are donated to children and families around the world and provide a steady supply of nutritious food and the surplus can be sold for extra income.

How lovely to buy a cute plush the child on your list while also helping a family get a leg up in the world.  I now, as I always have, believe World Vision is an excellent way to contribute to those around us in a meaningful way.  Visit World Vision today and start helping.

Today I am so happy to tell you that World Vision is very generously offering one lucky RBM reader the Artisan Beaded Necklace.  I have one myself and it is absolutely beautiful.  I am forever getting compliments on it.  Thanks so much to World Vision and here is how to enter.... a Rafflecopter giveaway
