being MVP: 2015 World Vision Gift Catalog + #Giveaway

2015 World Vision Gift Catalog + #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received the following for feature. All opinions are my own.

The holiday season is filled with fun, activities and gifts filled with good spirit. While I enjoy finding the perfect gifts for all the loved ones in my life, I also find it equally important that I show my children the importance of giving especially during this time of the year. For those who are in need for a little extra cash for gifting during the holidays, check out title loans.

While giving to the local toy drives and charities is a great feeling, I have recently learned about World Vision’s Gift Catalog, which is a great way to make my family socially responsible.


The World Vision Gift Catalog is a great way to impact people throughout the world in a way that benefits them the most. The needs and wants across the world vary and the World Vision Gift Catalog fights poverty by allowing you to purchase gifts that will improve the their quality of life. There are over 250 gifts available for purchase ranging from $16 to $39,000. These hand-crafted gifts are created by struggling families across the world and the money raised from their purchases will support them with things they need the most.

The History’s First Coffee Blend comes with a 10 oz. bag of delicious coffee with a hand-crafted wooden scoop and African bag. The Ethiopian Yrgacheffe and Sumatra Permata Gayo are known to have created this first known mix of coffee with a legendary pairing of citrus and chocolate. Your purchase of a little bit of history will help farmers who are struggling to overcome poverty.


The Upcycled Artisanal Bowl is a gorgeous bowl made from reclaimed industrial waste such as wires and metal. Artisans in India hand bent and soldered each piece into different shapes to create this ornate bowl that can be used as a decorative element or to hold items. The money from this purchase will go towards urgent needs of a child, family or community.


The Balinese Multi-strand Necklace was handmade by a Balinese artisan who overcame tremendous difficulties to help children attain the education she never could herself. The beautiful draped beaded necklace is a great accessory for any outfit and a great way to help fight poverty.

Every gift purchase through the World Vision Gift Catalog is tax deductible and comes with a guaranty that they will honor the donation in the most effective manner possible. Each item is representative of the category in which it appears and donations will be used to assist where it’s needed most within that category or address a similar need.

The World Vision Gift Catalog is a great way to give help where it is needed most. Purchases through World Vision is a great way to shop for my loved ones during the holiday season, give aid to the world and show my kids the importance of social responsibility and our roles in improving the world.

  2. We love to buy gifts though IDES instead of getting each other gifts. I think this year we are buying someone a sewing machine. I can't wait to sit down with my daughter and talk to her about it and let her pick out something little like a baby chick to send too .

  3. Down the road from my home is a shelter for women & children in domestic violence situations. I have donated some stuff since I've been here but now that the holidays are here, I've tried to picked up something new to donate every week. Sometimes all I can do is a pair of socks or canned veggies.I also encourage my kids to donate some of their things as well. I shop locally too. :)
