The money raised from 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.
In addition to handcrafted items, the catalog includes such items as fishing kits, farm animals, and a safe home to help families in need. Like the animal idea? Consider the Animal of the Month club where a different family receives a different animal each month for a year. That $39,000 item? That's to build and stock a Health Clinic.
Since 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative. Last year alone, more than 822,000 people were helped through funds generated by the Catalog.
