Make a Big Impact by Giving Gifts That Give Back
We spend a lot of money this time of year often on sadly meaningless things. How about making your dollars count for more than just stuff this year by choosing gifts that help people in need? One company making a difference in global poverty is World Vision. World Vision started selling items from their gift catalog in 1996 and offers handcrafted items, goats, chickens, clothing for children, ducks, and medicine for people in poverty.
The 2016 World Vision Gift Catalog contains more than 250 poverty-fighting gifts, ranging in price from $16 to $39,000, that improve the quality of life for struggling children and families in the U.S. and around the world.With more than 30 gifts priced at $35 or less, you’re sure to find something to greatly benefit a person’s life who desperately needs help. I’m honored to share information about World Vision, a company that keeps its overhead low in order to donate as much as possible. In 2015, 84% of World Vision’s total operating expenses were used for programs that benefit children, families, and communities in need and more than 650,000 people were helped through funds generated by the catalog.
