Help Create a Better Future for Children with World Vision

Many of us wish for the spirit of Christmas to continue throughout the year, particularly the desire for goodwill and charity toward others.  My favorite ways to contribute to the world is though education and enabling others to grow and provide for themselves.

World Vision is an organization that does just that, and makes it easy for you to give a gift of hope for families around the world.  In addition to giving a donation or sponsoring a child, you can shop the World Vision catalog, which contains meaningful gifts like farm animals, fruit trees and drought-resistant seeds, items that will directly impact a family in need both in the US and around the globe.
The catalog has more than 250 items ranging in price from $16 to $39,000, including tangible items that you can gift to those on your list.  The Fair Trade coffee set is one such gift.
When you contribute $50 or more toward the Maximum Impact Fund--which provides for the unique needs of children and families worldwide--you will receive this coffee set, which includes a 12oz. bag of Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Costa Rica coffee blended by OneCup.org delivered in a gift bag of African fabric hand-sewn by local women. It also is bundled with a hand-carved olivewood scoop made to benefit over 200 orphans of the Kamba tribe.

There are so many other meaningful gifts at World Vision, like the clean water fund and resources to help girls and women who are sexually exploited.  There are so many categories that you can choose, whether by region, severity, and type of gift.

You can learn more about World Vision via Facebook and by following @WorldVisionUSA on Twitter.

One lucky reader will win their own Fair Trade Coffee set.  Please enter via Rafflecopter below.

Disclosure: I received a sample Fair Trade coffee set from World Vision for review.
