World Vision Artisan Beaded Necklace Giveaway

by Katie on December 10, 2012

Over the course of the Christmas season, most Americans plan to make a charitable donation to at least one organization.  In fact, nearly 60 percent of Americans say they’ll donate between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  With so many worthy causes, it’s difficult to know where the gift can best be used.

World Vision is a Christian relief, development, and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.  It is their mission to work with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice, and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God.

Gifts to 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 that can be given to a loved one, while at the same time, can help a person in need.

Below is a selection of items that are available from the World Vision Gift Catalog:

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 have 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 including 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.

I’m donating to World Vision! My homeschooler and I are doing a charity savings project that will culminate in a donation to World Vision.

We did two things in particular that made us feel more wonderful than any gift shopping for family and friends: We “adopted” a family from the local Domestic Abuse Shelter and provided the family with gifts, and spent two hours bagging new socks for a local “Socks for Seniors” project.

We are doing many things to help others. We picked a name from our giving tree from church, my son is donating and helping at his food drive at school, I’m helping a family at work whose daughter was in a awful car accident, I work at a food panty. We have many things to be grateful for and I believe we are only truly happy when you help others.

My children and I are serving our parish by organizing volunteers and cooking for the annual community Christmas dinner. We did the same thing last year, and will continue as long as we are needed. :-)

We have “adopted” a child through Food For The Hungry.
We have contributed to the local homeless mission and The Salvation Army.

Every year our family takes a couple ornaments off the giving tree at our church. When the kids were younger they would pick out the presents for the needy families. Now I do it myself but still enjoy giving to those less fortunate.
