I am all about trying to give thoughtful gifts.  It means so much if you really think the person will like it and you are not just giving a gift to give one.  You know what else is pretty awesome?  When the gift is more than the gift to the recipient.  Don't know what I mean?
Well, at World Visions, when you purchase a gift, it is doing more than just being a gift from you to the person that gets the physical gift.   It also provides for families around the world.  Let me try and explain even further:
Balinese Multi-Strand Necklace 
You see this necklace?  It is a beauty!  (Even more so in person!)
If you donate $85 (or more) you will receive this gorgeous necklace that you can keep or give to a loved one.  (It is tax deductible, less the fair market value of $32, so you can write it off.)  More than that,  This necklace was made, by hand. from an artist in BALI.  World Vision then takes the donation part of the money and they use it to help wherever they see the need around the world.  

If you are not familiar with World Vision, you will want to head over to look at their catalog :
The 2015 World Vision Gift 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. This holiday season, encourage your readers to give help where it is most needed and receive beautiful handcrafted jewelry for themselves or their loved ones.

You can sponsor a child, get friends involved to give a major gift or even look through the gift catalog to see what you might want. (They have other items besides jewelry, I just loved this necklace!)  The great thing about the catalog is that you have a gift that is a reminder to you of how you helped someone besides yourself and your family.  Helping others, it really is a great gift!   

Now, one lucky reader gets to win a necklace just like this!

  1. I really like that a portion of all the sales go to charity and the idea of being able to by gifts or donate both mixed in the same catalog.
