Giveaway: Give a gift, help a family with the World Vision Gift Catalog (win a handcarved serving spoon set!)



World Vision Gift Catalog

Are you looking for a holiday present for someone who has everything?  Get creative this holiday season by giving  friends and loved ones delicious, poverty-fighting holiday gifts from the 2014 World Vision Gift Catalog. They have more than 250 items, ranging in price from $10 to $39,000, are available online and in the print catalog to help improve quality of life for women, children and families in the U.S. and around the world.  You can choose from gorgeous handcrafted jewelry or accessories like a silk scarf or a tote.  The World Vision Gift Catalog also features wonderful hostess gifts, like gourmet coffee or cinnamon, or this beautiful set of wooden serving spoons that they sent me:

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

If you'd prefer not to receive a handcrafted gift so that your donation goes directly to benefit underprivileged families around the world, the World Vision Gift Catalog also lets you purchase items that directly benefit those families. You can purchase a donkey or some fish, or a deep well, or mosquito nets, or clothing.  You can purchase these in the name of someone you love. You can purchase these for someone who already has everything money can buy -- they gets a happy, warm feeling, knowing that someone less fortunate is benefiting, and of course the physical gift actually benefits people around the world who truly need a holiday gift.

Help where it's needed most ... AND get a gift for yourself or someone you care about!  It's a wonderful win-win situation, and just what the world needs for the holidays!

Win a Hand-Carved Serving Spoon set

One lucky Bonggamom Finds reader will receive a Hand-Carved Serving Spoon set from World Vision!

My family sews stuffed animals to give to the local children's hospital, donates food to food drives, and make handcrafted christmas cards to the local retirement homes. Best way to spread cheer is to help others!

I tried to teach my children about the true meaning of Christmas by reading the story of Jesus birth on Christmas Eve to remind them and me that Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas.

This time of year our favorite way to give back is by donating to Toys for Tots. I used to work in child welfare so I know there is a lot of need for toys for kids and every kid deserves a holiday gift. Thanks for the chance, justicecw@hotmail.com
