Giving at the holidays doesn’t have to mean buying everything from a big box store. Here are several ways to give back to those in need by purchasing gorgeous fair trade gifts- and helping others around the world.
Here’s a secret that World Vision knows about- a secret that World Vision has known for years: a little hope goes a long way and generosity multiplies. World Vision’s Gift Catalog offers gifts that have a multiplier effect—positively impacting the giver, receiver and those in need. Your readers can eliminate shopping guilt and join World Vision’s efforts to tackle poverty and injustice around the world, helping children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential.
That’s why I’m excited to have partnered with World Vision this year to bring awareness to their “Where Most Needed Fund”- When a donation is made to World Vision’s “Where Most Needed” fund, donors can choose from different items (like the below) to receive as a meaningful memento of their gift.
I received a gift basket of items to try, and I LOVE them all. And Word Vision is generously offering you the chance to win a gift basket for yourself- valued at almost $500. Here are the details:
What’s in the World Vision Gift Basket
- The Heaton Hope Bracelet ($100) – This year, everyone’s favorite TV mom, Patricia Heaton, has partnered with World Vision to design the Patricia Heaton Hope Bracelet. The name was purposely chosen to encourage people to feel hopeful about our world and to give hope, through generosity, to those in need.
- Vietnamese Tote ($100) – Disabled Vietnamese women gain independence by creating these beautiful hand-embroidered purses. I especially love this tote because my MacBook Air fits right inside with the zipper closed!
- African Soapstone Box ($85) – Talented artisans bring raw stone to life with etched designs and hand dyed finishes that showcase modern African creativity and provide a sustainable way out of poverty.
- Charm Necklace ($100) – Made by a gold and silver plating specialist in India, the unique and elegant charms make this necklace a subtle statement piece.
- Infinity Scarf ($75) – This fashion-forward accessory is made by artisans in India who are trained in the loom industry to attain skills and a sustainable livelihood. This pairs perfectly with my wardrobe, and I hardly even know that I’m wearing it.
- Wraparound Ring ($55) – A vibrant, adjustable ring with aqua and blue chalcedony stones set in metal, made by female artisans in India. I don’t even like to wear rings generally, and this ring is perfect. It is easy to size, and I get compliments on it all the time!
