Every Christmas we spend a lot of time and money finding the perfect gifts for our loved ones, why not choose to give a gift that also makes a difference to those in need? With World Vision’s 2016 Gift Catalog, you can do just that. Your loved one will receive a beautiful handcrafted gift, while your donation goes to help children, families, and communities in need around the world.
Last year over 122,000 Americans raised over 29.3 million dollars through the Gift Catalog, helping meet the needs of 650,00 people around the world. When you donate, or give a gift through World Vision, you can be confident that your gift will really reach children, families, and communities. World Vision is committed to keeping overhead low, and last year 84% of their expenses went towards programs that help those in need. World Vision provides assistance in nearly 100 countries, and each dollar donated to World vision achieves $1.30 work of impact for people living in poverty worldwide!
The 2016 catalog contains more than 250 items to choose from, including 30 gifts that are $35 or less. When you choose a gift from the World Vision Catalog, your gift recipient will receive a card letting them know about the life-changing gift that has been given in their name. Choose from gifts that changes lives and communities, such as farm animals, medicine, schooling, shelter, and wells.
You can also choose to give a general donation to the Where Most Needed fund, that will be used toward needs that would otherwise go unmet. If you’d like to give a tangible gift to a loved one to remind them of the donation made in their name, then choose to receive a handcrafted gift along with your donation to the Where Most Needed fund.
Look at this amazing sampling of the handcrafted gifts you can choose from when you donate to the Where Most Needed fund: The tree of life votive holder, made by artisans in south-east Asia who transfer cast-off metals to light the way for their children’s education.
