With recent events in Paris the state of the world has never been more evident and the needs continue to rise as the terror increases. It’s hard to think about all the suffering in the world but especially during the holiday season. For those of us that are blessed to live in this country and have a roof over our head, the holiday season is a joyous time. For others it’s just a reminder of what they do without and what their kids will go without.
While kids in the United States might be upset they didn’t receive the latest Star Wars toy, there are others across the world literally starving to death. I have always been a huge supporter of World Vision because of their dedication to helping the plight of the less fortunate. I think during the holidays it’s even more important to remember those that are suffering.
The thing that I love about the gifts in the World Vision Catalogue is that they are two fold. You can purchase something beautiful like the featured Silver Vines Cuff for a loved one but at the same time you are making a donation and contribution. What better way to give while buying something you are going to buy anyway!
Remember these gifts are tax deductible minus the fair market value which is always provided!
Here is some information about the Silver Vines Cuff as well as where your money goes.
Help where it’s needed most — AND receive a gift for yourself or someone you care about! Your gift to help where most needed will address specific, urgent needs that might otherwise go unmet for a child, family, or community. As a memento of this gift, you’ll receive this gorgeous, adjustable silver cuff bracelet with an intricately laced vine pattern, designed by artisans in Old Delhi, India. This stunning piece is the result of once-mistreated jewelry makers banding together to support their families through fair trade practices.
Approximate size: 2 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ (adjustable x 1 1/2″W)
Please note your gift is tax-deductible, less the fair market value of $25.
Allow 7-10 days for delivery of handcrafted gifts.
This piece is truly stunning and while you’d expect something that was more about the fundraising opportunity than the item itself would not be great quality like when you buy something from school fundraisers but it’s quite the opposite. The quality is unparalleled to anything I’ve seen and I love that it was designed and made by artisans in India.
There are many other beautiful items to choose from in the catalogue. Here is some information on just a few.
