World Vision Giveaway

Today is a different sort of Orange You Glad it is Friday.  I am including a giveaway from World Vision.

How many of us really need another Christmas present?  Of course it is always nice to receive, oftentimes it is better to give. Just think of the good you could do by giving a present from World Vision.  For $30 you could give a family 5 ducks.


                      I really like the idea of helping a family provide nutrition for it's family. 


Whether it’s for the tax deduction or the warm fuzzy feeling giving to others generates, most Americans plan to make a charitable donation over the holiday season. In fact, nearly 60 percent of Americans say they’ll donate between Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to a survey reported in the Chronicle of Philanthropy.
With so many worthy causes, it is difficult to know where the gift can best be used.  Gifts to the World Vision Gift Catalog Maximum Impact Fund are used where resources are most desperately needed, to help children and families in struggling communities around the world. With a financial contribution, the gift giver can select one of 36 Maximum Impact items (a few are listed below) that can be given to a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.
As you develop your holiday gift guide or blog post, please consider the unique, life-changing items from World Vision’s Gift Catalog. 

I like the idea that you can choose to give a gift that will help a family survive-such as livestock or you can choose to give clothing or make a donation through purchasing an item.  World vision has some wonderful ideas and concepts.  They help people abroad and here in the United States. 

Take a look at the World Vision Gift Catalog Facebook page  and World Vision’s Pinterest page at http://pinterest.com/worldvisionusa/.


 World Vision was kind enough to give me this beautiful necklace made in Thailand.

The girl in the photo looks so happy! She really looks great in orange. I'm not much on orange but she really looks great in it!

I think it's a wonderful idea to give to organizations instead of receiving a Christmas gift. I love purchasing toys for the Marine's Toys for Tots campaign at Christmas. It may be the only toy a child receives at Christmas and isn't that what it's all about.

Thanks for being an angel for the needy.You will be doubly blessed for doing so. I guess it is easier for people in your country to be helping others, but for us from this country, we hardly make both ends meet. And that is considering that we are educated and have fulltime government jobs. We just make the best for our lives without putting weight on others. I also am helping 2 kids to school because they already lost their father, and their mother happens to be taking care of my old mother. The mother resigned from work to take care of my father who was bedridden coz of stroke. So i have the responsibility in turn to take care of their financial needs in school and food in the house too. The mother is my sister with two kids! Enjoy life to the fullest, God bless.
