Give a gift, Make a difference with World Vision

I very happily sponsor a boy in India, named Daniel, through World Vision. I think they are an amazing organization that does wonderful things all around the world, including here in the USA. I was recently contacted by World Vision to see if I would like to share their new Christmas catalog with my readers. Of course!

So when you make a purchase from the catalog, you aren't buying something for yourself. You are buying it for one of the millions of people that World Vision helps out. You can buy chicken, goats, soccer balls, school supplies, and tons of other awesome gifts. These are things that we take for granted here in the US. For the people who are receiving these gifts, it could be life-saving or at least life-altering. Two chickens costing $25 will give a family an endless supply of eggs. If you give a goat with those two chickens, it'll cost you only $100 and give a family an endless supply of eggs, milk, and meat.

With some purchases, you do get a gift beyond what you are giving. For a $50 donation, you can get a blend of fair-trade coffee from Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Costa Rica, all held together in a bag handcrafted by African women. I'm in love with these ornaments that you get with a $150 donation. They are the cutest. For the littles in your family, you can get Veggie Tales League of Incredible Vegetables on DVD for a donation of $50. There are also gorgeous scarves, necklaces, and other accessories.

You can go here for the catalog. You can also follow World Vision on pinterest and facebook.

To thank me for sharing their catalog with you, World Vision sent me a copy of The League of Incredible Vegetables. They are also kindly giving one away to a lucky BBB reader. To enter, just fill out the rafflecopter form below. Good luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway Pin It

  2. We've done this in previous years, and donated a goat and chickens as a family. It was a great experience :)
