Discover the True Spirit of Christmas with World Vision

by Leanne

Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide – Day 21

Are you looking for a holiday present that really touches on the spirit of the season?  World Vision gives you a way for you to surprise everyone on your list with something more than just a present to open on Christmas Day.  By purchasing a two-for-one gift from World Vision, it’s a way to give back and make a real impact in the world but still give the recipient something fun to open as well.

Seven-one-necklace-0911-lgOne look through their catalog of gifts and you will find toys, jewelry, holiday items and more to choose from for that special someone.  Whether it’s an acquaintance you don’t know very well, your husband who has it all, or it’s your brand new baby nephew, there’s so many ways to show your recipient how much they mean to you while still maintaining the spirit of giving this Christmas. 

We got a chance to hang the World Vision handmade Zakale wire and bead ornament set on our Christmas tree this year and I couldn’t be more excited.  Besides the fact that they are really festive and fun, I love that they are the ornaments are handmade from recycled L1833materials by a group of Kenyan artisans reclaiming their lives from poverty.  My sister did a mission trip in Kenya when I was young and I remember as a young girl looking through all her beautiful pictures of all the amazing people and places that changed her life and dreaming of one day making it there myself.

As great of gift selection as the World Vision holiday gift catalog has, there are also numerous options for that person who truly does have everything and would rather their gift go entirely towards those who need it most.  Whether you choose a goat and chickens {a goat! For Christmas!} or money for clean water, you know that your contribution will not only make your recipient happy when they open your card telling them how L1317they donated, it will also be fun for you as well.  Who doesn’t want to say you got someone a goat for Christmas?

Want another option to really wow someone this holiday season?  Why not sponsor a child in their name!  What an awesome way to really make a difference and share your love with someone thousands of miles away.  World Vision makes it easy to set up your sponsorship, learn about the child you are helping, and develop a relationship with them.  Besides being an amazing way to give to someone in need, I am excited about what an awesome learning experience it would be for small children to learn about people and Wheremostneededcultures from around the world and feel a bond with someone they have never met. 

To learn more about World Vision and how they make a difference in the lives of children and families living in poverty in the U.S. and around the world, please visit http://www.worldvision.org/.  You can also see some amazing ways World Vision is giving back by visiting "The True Spirit of Christmas Tour" Facebook page.
