While many of us feel our fullest at this time of year, it’s really important to remember those who are at their emptiest. It is in these winter months that many families struggle to keep warm or fed.
This month I teamed up with World Vision, a humanitarian organization dedicated to help improve quality of life for families all over the world. What I like best about World Vision is that they are a group committed to helping others in more than 100 countries around the world regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. Last fiscal year more than 186,000 donors purchased more than 475,000 items that raised over $33.7 million; that helped more than 825,000 people around the world.
The amount of change that can occur through this organization is astounding, and with more than 250 items featured in their online store, I feel like it’s a really easy way to participate in giving to those in need while purchasing gifts for your loved ones! Whether you are looking for an item you can present to family or looking to make a donation in someone’s name, the difference you make with your purchase is one that will stand the test of time. The handcrafted gifts are looked at as a free gift while your donation goes to where it is most needed. Other items are purchased for those in need; items like chickens, goats, and education are some of the most popular things purchased. Once the purchase is compete, you will receive a customized thank you in the mail regarding your gift.
It is because of this organization that I am able to give away an absolutely, jaw-droppingly gorgeous set of hand-carved serving spoons.
