I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
For the past few years, I’ve shared about how you can support others through the World Vision Gift Catalog. This organization is poised to help so many people and what seems like a modest gift to us goes a LONG way helping another person. Why not consider purchasing a lovely holiday gift from 2015 World Vision Gift Catalog the instead of the typical gift card?
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. This organization does not just seek out far away lands, but has avenues for supporting the less fortunate in the United States as well.
They have some truly lovely items available which not only bring joy to a friend or loved one when given, but help meet basic needs of someone you’ve never met.
Either online or in the print catalog, you will find over 250 ways that you can help improve the quality of life for women, children and families in the U.S. and around the world. Some of the options provide you with a wonderful handcrafted gift that are perfect for holiday baking or entertaining such as the following:

The money raised from your purchase of these hand-crafted gifts goes to the Where Most Needed fund, which supports a variety of World Vision’s programs around the world.
I was sent a Balinese Multi-Strand Necklace to review and am in love with it! The beads have so many gorgeous colors and it just pops when put against a solid color top. I am wearing a black turtleneck from Kohl’s and a heather gray sweater which I purchased at Costco last season.
This will be gorgeous for date night or just because you want to feel special.
One of my lucky readers will get to win their own Balinese Multi-Strand Necklace to keep and enjoy year round (or use it as a gift for a loved one this holiday season.
