Give a gift that gives back!

As you begin your holiday shopping, you may be turned off by a lot of the commercialism. Through the years I have cut back - focusing less on buying and more on the experience. That said, we still do exchange gifts on Christmas and it is also my middle daughter's birthday. I love the idea of buying a gift that also helps contribute to a charitable cause. rel="nofollow"has a charitable gift catalog or simply the means to allow you to donate directly to the cause.

Who is WorldVision?  WorldVision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice. Working in nearly 100 countries around the world, they serve all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

When you purchase from you have several options
- donate directly for Americans
- donate directly where most needed globally
- donate for Emergency Aid
- donate to a specific cause, including Animals (livestock), Clean Water, Housing and Shelter, Education, Hunger, Medical Care, Orphans and Widows.
- Purchase a handcrafted item that goes towards a specific cause.

I received the lovely Colors of Africa Bracelet and Earring Set.

Help where it's needed most ... AND get a gift for yourself or someone you care about! With your gift of $100 or more to where most needed — which provides for the unique needs of children and families worldwide — you will receive this gorgeous Zakale bracelet and earring set from Nairobi. Zakale crafts are made from recycled materials by Kenyan artisans, who received a loan from World Vision to grow their business and lift themselves out of poverty.

Approximate sizes: bracelet 8" long, earrings 2" long. Each is unique - size and color may vary slightly.

When requesting the jewelry set, please note your gift is tax-deductible less the fair market value of $20.

The quality on this set is impressive.  Even more impressive is that you are helping a great cause while giving a gift to a friend or loved one!

I encourage you to take a look at the website to see how you can help!  For more info, please refer to the video below.

Disclosure - I received the set for review purposes.  I did not receive any compensation for this post.
