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.
The last two 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 2014 World Vision Gift Catalog the instead of the typical gift card?
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:
Prosperity Cinnamon: Know a friend or family member who loves to bake? Each beautifully-carved cinnamon bark box contains 3 oz. of cinnamon and bears a common Asian character for prosperity. Vietnam’s renowned sweet cinnamon is a renewable resource collected from the Cassia tree, sold to benefit generations of hard-working families. $85
Fair-Trade Coffee Set: For the coffee lover, this 12 oz. coffee set is blended by OneCup.org, using delicious flavors from Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Costa Rica, and is delivered in a gift bag of African fabric hand-sewn by local women. $65
Hand-Carved Serving Spoons: A perfect gift for holiday entertaining, each beautiful set of two hand-carved olivewood serving spoons is delivered in a gift bag of African fabric hand-sewn by local women. The serving spoons are made to benefit orphans of the Kamba tribe in Kenya. $65
We were sent one of the serving spoon sets and it is GORGEOUS! I can hardly wait to use it at our upcoming holiday meals as it will make it just that more special.
Since it began in 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative; more than 844,000 people helped someone through the Catalog in the last fiscal year alone.
