World Vision is a Christian relief and development organization, dedicated to helping children and their communities worldwide reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty. Â We serve the world’s poor, regardless of a person’s religion, race, ethnicity or gender. Â For more information, visit www.worldvision.org.
Through World Vision’s Gift Catalog, you can choose a meaningful, life-changing gift to meet the urgent needs of children around the world. Â In most catalogs, the most popular or most wanted items are usually high-tech gadgets, like iPads. Â But in this magazine, the top item is a goat. Â For just $75, you can give the gift of a goat. Â Goats provide protein to help children grow, and the family can sell the surplus milk, cheese, and yogurt at the market to earn money for medicines and other necessities.
For $30, you can give the gift of 5 ducks and for $25, you can give the gift of 2 chickens.
If you have to shop for someone who already has everything, this would be a perfect idea as a gift. Â Send a gift in their name, and you can even match the gift with a hobby or interest of the person the gift is for. Â For example, if your person who has everything is a soccer enthusiast, you can donate 4 soccer balls to a school for just $32. Â You can provide two bibles in the child’s own language for just $36.
There are so many gift giving opportunities in this catalog where you can really make a difference, and the prices are very reasonable! Â You can provide $600 worth of new toys for just $50.
When I was first told about World Vision, I didn’t completely understand the concept, and I had never heard of it before, even though it’s been around since 1996. Â But now that I am aware of such a program, I think it’s a wonderful thing, and now I’m debating on which gift to give.
Does this inspire you to give this holiday season?
