Check out the amazing 2016 World Vision Gift Catalog Giveaway I’m hosting on the blog today, just in time for the holiday season!
Thanks to World Vision for sponsoring this giveaway. I was provided the products for review, but all opinions and photos are my own.
The holidays are just around the corner, and it’s definitely not too early to be thinking about gifts! I’ve already bought a few small things for the kids, but we’re also thinking about what charities to donate to.
Charitable giving increases during the holiday period, and in 2015, Americans gave over $373 billion to charitable organizations, which was 4.1 percent increase from 2014, according to the National Philanthropic Trust. If you like the idea of giving a gift that can make a difference in someone’s life, check out the 2016 World Vision Gift Catalog.
This year’s catalog features more than 250 gifts that can help combat poverty and improve the quality of life for struggling families and children here in the U.S. and around the world. Gifts in the catalog range from $16 to $39,000, with more than 30 gifts priced at $35 or less.
I received a sample box with a few items from the holiday catalog from World Vision, and let me tell you, this stuff is amazing! I actually squeeled when I opened it because the handmade items are gorgeous. So gorgeous, in fact, that I’m giving one lucky U.S. reader a chance to win the same handmade items!
Here’s what you’ll find in the giveaway box:
Tree of Life Votive Holder – This lovely aqua-blue votive holder is handmade from cast-off materials.
Upcycled Artisanal Bowl – This stunning copper-colored bowl is up-cycled from reclaimed industrial waste such as wires and metal and handmade by artisans in India. It would be perfect on a coffee table or shelf!
History’s First Coffee Blend and Olivewood Scoop – Citrus and chocolate pair up in this 10-ounce whole bean blend of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and Sumatra Permata Gayo coffees from farmers who are overcoming poverty with their earnings.
Turquoise Medallion Necklace – This is my personal favorite! Handmade by families in Delhi, this brightly-beaded medallion necklace adds a bold pop of color to any outfit.
Royal Silk Scarf – This luxurious silk is woven by Vietnam’s Ma Chau villagers, who receive sustainable income through their craft. It’s light and super soft!
Silver Vines Cuff – My teen loves this one! This elegant adjustable silver cuff bracelet designed by artisans in Old Delhi, India, and decorated with an intricately-laced vine pattern.
The money raised from purchasing these handcrafted items goes to the Where Most Needed fund, which supports a variety of World Vision’s programs around the world. Donors can also choose to make a general donation, or have a card sent in honor of someone special. You can also check out the World Vision page on Facebook to learn more about what they’re doing.
