2012 Holiday Gift Giving Guide and Giveaways - World Vision Gift Catalog Thai 100% Silk Scarf - Review and Giveaway ends on 01/02/2013...




 







WWW.WorldVisionGifts.ORG

Today's Gift Idea and Give-a-way is sponsored by World Vision and we are excited to be featuring their Gift Catalog. World Vision is a Christian relief and development organization dedicated to helping children and their communities worldwide reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty. They serve the world's poor, regardless of a person's religion, race, ethnicity or gender.




If you are looking to make the Holidays more meaningful this year please consider shopping the World Vision Gift Catalog where the top holidays gift isn't an iPad, it's a goat! Imagine helping someone in need this holiday --no you won't be buying them predictable presents like iPads or scooters, dolls or even gift cards this year, but more meaningful, life-changing gifts that will meet the urgent needs of children around the world.




Give a goat, cow or chickens this year and provide a family with new sources of nutrition and the potential to sell eggs or milk, helping the family climb out of poverty. For only $101 you could give 13 small farm animals: 10 ducks, 2 chickens and 1 rabbit which will provide ample protein and vital nutrition including eggs, meat and more for years to come.


Maybe you love sports, feel great knowing that you can provide a school with brand new soccer balls and give the children the gift of fun and activity. When basics like food and health care are scarce many children have never had a real soccer ball to play with. 2 Soccer Balls only $16, 6 for only $48 --give the love of sports today!





If you are a gardener then you will love providing fast growing hybrid or drought-resistant seeds for a farmer, helping feed the farmer's family for seasons to come. Provide seeds for one family and it's only $17 or for only $30 you could provide Seeds, Tools and Training in Africa which could be the difference between life or death for hungry children.




Are you a cyclist? How great will it make you feel being able to provide a child her first bicycle and safe transportation to and from school. In countries like Cambodia and India, many girls are forced to drop out of school because they live too far away or risk dangers such as violence or kidnapping on their walking route. Your gift of a bicycle will provide safe, speedy transportation for these eager young students, enabling them to achieve their dreams of education — and a brighter future.




 Help where it's needed most ... AND get a gift for yourself or someone you care about! By contributing to the Maximum Impact Fund which provides for the unique needs of children and families worldwide you can choose to receive handmade gifts such as ornaments from Nairobi or accessories from Thailand like this Thai 100% silk scarf that I received above.

 After the harvest season, the hard working women of Thailand's Surin Province put down the tools of farming and take up the loom. These beautiful scarves are hand-woven into distinctive striped patterns. The one I received (shown above) is just gorgeous and very special --it's available for a donation of $125.





This is World Vision's 17th annual edition of the catalog. Since 1996 the catalog's popularity as a gift-giving alternative has grown with more than 160,000 purchases last year raising over $33 million that helped more than 825,000 people around the world! Goats remain the most popular item --more than 67,000 goats were given to families around the world in 2011. You can purchase a goat for just $75!
