Day 4 – 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways From World Vision

Each year my children receive more gifts then needed. But, the one gift they receive each year that is needed comes from their Grandparents. Each year my children receive a World Vision gift card in the mail announcing to them what gift was purchased for a family in a third world country in their name. It allows for my children to be a part of helping another family who is in need. It also creates great conversation about the needs of others and how our wants are just that wants not needs.

World Vision’s Gift Catalog Makes Holiday Gift Giving Dollars Go Farther

Shoppers Improve the Lives of Children Through Affordable World Vision Gifts

World Vision’s Gift Catalog offers an economical way to remember those on your holiday shopping list. A gift given from the Gift Catalog significantly improves the life of a child or family in need by providing tools and opportunities to overcome extreme poverty, while at the same time honoring your friends and loved ones.

If you’re looking for great, inexpensive gifts ($50 or less):
• $16 buys two soccer or basketballs for a child
• $17 buys improved hybrid or drought-resistant seeds for a nourishing harvest and income
• $18 buys enough bed nets to protect an entire family from malaria
• $25 provides $350 worth of school supplies in the U.S.
• $25 buys two chickens to provide a lasting source of nutrition and income for a family
• $40 will purchase a Family fishing kit to help an impoverished family put food on their own table.

More costly items include:
• $270 for a sewing machine for a woman or girl in Zambia, Ghana or Ecuador who will make a living as a seamstress
• $75-$500 buys live changing animals for a single mother. A cow, goat, pig or chickens helps a single mother generate income from the sale of milk, eggs, animals’ offspring to help her provide for her children
• $2,600 to provide a traditional well that provides safe water for up to 150 people in countries like Malawi.

The World Vision Gift Catalog features more than 100 items (many under $35). For each World Vision gift, the giver makes the purchase in the name of a friend, family member, or business associate. World Vision then sends special cards to those individuals, describing the gifts and their impact. In the following year, the gift itself or intervention reaches the child or family in need. All items are tax-deductible.

First published in 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog last year raised $23 million and helped more than 500,000 people. This year the organization seeks to raise a record-breaking $25 million through the World Vision Gift Catalog to help provide impoverished communities with much-needed resources like water, livestock, medicine, and agriculture – assistance that could change the lives of nearly 625,000 people.
