During the holiday season it's very easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of things. And it's very easy to forget what this season is all about. It's the season of giving, but there are so many people in this world who would benefit so much from so little.
While we all enjoy shopping for our friends and family, we should keep those in need in our minds. World Vision has created the perfect opportunity to give to those who need it most. Through their World Vision Catalog you can give the gift of life by feeding a family in the US for a day for only $16. You can help fund a child's education for only $32. Or you can purchase a goat for $75. With the purchase of a goat you are providing children with protein from the milk and allowing families to sell the surplus.
Their catalog offers a variety of ways you can make a difference at many different price levels. Or you can choose to make a donation and receive a gift in return. World Vision sent me one of the gifts that they offer, the Artisan Multi-Colored Necklace.
This necklace is beautiful and can be worn long or doubled up. The colors are fabulous! You can also wrap it several times to create a bracelet.
You can check out all the possible ways to give, and perhaps get a gift in return, at the World Vision Catalog.
