It's important for our family to give back. Whether we're flying to Peru to do a mission trip, supporting a missionary, or delivering holiday baskets to families in our local area, it's important that we're always trying find ways to give back. Last Christmas we bought 12 items from the World Vision Gift Catalog. This year when I was contacted by World Vision to work with them on a review & giveaway again, it was an automatic, "Yes!" I was trying to figure it out, and I think this is my 4th or 5th year partnering with them!

The work World Vision does is immeasurable! When you see catastrophes hit, you'll find them there. If people are in need, you don't even have to wonder because I'm guessing they've been touched in some way by World Vision. That's why the work they do is so vitally important.
When you begin your gift purchasing this year, please keep the World Vision Gift Catalog in mind. Instead of another set of socks, give 3 ducks or two chickens. It's two gifts for the price of one if you truly look at it. You're giving the person you love a gift of doing something good in their name. Then the person receiving your purchase has the tangible gift. Doesn't that just fill your heart?!
In 2015, Americans gave over $373 billion to charitable organizations, a 4.1 percent increase from 2014 (National Philanthropic Trust). As charitable giving continues to grow, readers are searching for reputable organizations to support. This year, encourage your readers to place their trust in the World Vision Gift Catalog.
The 2016 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. Did you see that? Over 250 gifts for you to choose from!
Now, if you're anything like my mom, she has to give an actual gift no matter the occasion. Have no fear, they've got you covered! You can purchase a gift like the ones you see in my photos. You can give your loved one a tangible gift that they can open and your money is sent to where it's needed the most!
