World Vision Gift Catalog Giveaway

As you prepare for your holiday giving season, how much of your list is for wants versus needs? The 2015 World Vision Gift Catalog provides an alternative, socially responsible way of giving. The products offered through the catalog actually impact society or where you can find them.

The catalog contains more than 250 poverty-fighting gifts, ranging in price from $16 to $39,000, that improve the quality of life for struggling children and families in the U.S. and around the world. Have you considered giving help where it is most needed and receiving beautiful handcrafted jewelry for yourself or their loved ones? Here are a handful of options and how they help a community.



Royal Silk Scarf – This gorgeous silk scarf adds color to the holidays and supports the needs of children and families worldwide. The luxurious silk is woven by Vietnam’s Ma Chau villagers, who receive sustainable income through their craft. $95




Balinese Multi-Strand Necklace – This beautiful, draped beaded necklace is handmade by Balinese artisans in a project that helps children in Bali receive an education. $85




Mango Wood Beaded Bracelet – Created by a community on the island of Java, these unique bracelets provide a sustainable income to help feed and care for their children – honor the special woman in your life with this gorgeous bracelet. $40



Silver Vines Cuff - Women and girls will love wearing this elegant adjustable silver cuff bracelet designed by artisans in Old Delhi, India. Each bracelet supports their families through fair trade practices. $85



African Soapstone Box – The hand-carved African Soapstone Box is a perfect place to store necklaces, rings and other trinkets. This ornate handmade gift is etched by talented artisans in Kenya who are using this sustainable resource to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. $85


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.

Now for the giveaway... You don't have to donate to win, but we're giving away an African Soapstone Box. You have through November 22, 2015 at 11:59pm EST to enter to win. US entrants only, 18+ to win. Void where prohibited.
