A gift that makes a difference is special for not just the purchaser and the person who receives the gift, but often someone who lives a world away. This year World Vision’s Gift Catalog offers gifts that have a multiplier effect—positively impacting the giver, receiver and those in need. You can join World Vision’s efforts to tackle poverty and injustice around the world, helping children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential.
World Vision sent us a great gift package with items specifically for the kitchen that make great conversation pieces but also useful items to use in your home. The items you can get from World Visions gift catalog are often handmade, and the funds go to a community and a family that needs the support. Our World Vision kitchen gift package included some beautiful reversible placemats, organic coffee, an upcycled artisanal bowl, salad servers and scoops and salad scoops. Individually they are great additions to any kitchen and help you prepare for the guests that are coming soon. But together, they make a great presentation for your holiday table, and will probably have your guests talking about the beautiful items.
When a donation is made to World Vision’s “Where Most Needed” fund, donors can choose from different items (like the below) to receive as a meaningful memento of their gift. All of these items would make a great gift for yourself or someone on your list, and can bring a bit of happiness to you when you know they are helping families reach their dreams for a better life on the other side of the world.
