2011 Holiday Gift Guide Day 10 - World Vision

Looking to give something more meaningful than a fruit cake this year?  Then you may want to visit World Vision and consider giving something to those in need.  Charitable items from the World Vision catalog help promote good health and nutrition in the developing world and can even be purcased in the name of a loved one.  You can give a gift by giving a gift in their name!

To get an idea how to order on the World Vision catalog you may want to check out the You Tube video here.

The catalog contains almost 250 items ranging in price from $16 to $39,000 that go towards helping both children and families in need.  Below, you will find some great ideas for

  • $60 for food and medicines - Lack of clothing and medicines puts boys and girls in the poorest countries at great risk but by purchasing clothing and food for them you can help prevent them from becoming ill or from getting infections.
  • $25 for clean water funds - Are you aware that every day more than 4,000 children die of water and sanitation related diseases?  Did you know that you can help by simply giving the gift of clean water. 
  • $55 for 5 Ducks and 2 Chickens - Chickens and ducks provide families with eggs which in return provides them with protein and nutrients that are needed in their diet. 
Those are just a few ways you can help out but there are plenty more ways,  matter of fact you might just be surprised by how many ways there are! 



World Vision provided me with a Fair-Trade Coffee Set which included coffee from Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Costa Rica blended by OneCup.org delivered in a bag of African fabric hand-sewn by local women. It is accompanied by a hand-carved olivewood scoop made to benefit over 200 orphans of the Kamba tribe. The coffee tasted delicious and I just adore the beautiful scoop that was included in the gift set. 

For the third year in a row,  World Vision will be traveling across the world this December to see the impact thier gifts has had on families and children. Be sure to visit "The True Spirit of Christmas Tour" on Facebook.

LEARN MORE:  To learn more about World Vision be sure to visit them on their website. 

WIN IT: World Vision is providing one lucky winner with the Coffee Gift Set mentioned above.

*Dislaimer - World Vision provided me with the item mentioned above,  free of charge for review purposes.  World Vision is also sponsoring my giveaway.  In no way did this alter my opinon of their products.  All of my opinions are one hundred percent honest and true.

suebunting1977@gmail.com The One Cup Project was borne out of a desire, no, a call, to help people. To help people less able to help themselves because of geography, climate, governments or disease.
