Last Minute Charitable Holiday Gifts

Silk scarf
Beaded ornaments

Charitable gifts are gifts that keep on giving.  When you make a holiday donation through the World Vision Gift Catalog's World Vision’s Maximum Impact Fund, the gift is used where it’s most needed, tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges. With a donation of $25 or more the donor receives a free gift to wear, carry, use or give to a loved one.  
Most of the Maximum Impact Fund items available in World Vision's catalog are made by micro-enterprising artisans around the world and the sale proceeds directly benefit their communities to help solve the challenges they face, such as access to food, clean water, education, and more. 
Here are some of the items available through the World Vision Gift Catalog:
  • Tie the beautiful beaded ornaments to napkin rings as a vivid tabletop decoration. The set includes three handmade Zakale wire and bead ornaments from Nairobi. Meaning "reuse," Zakale crafts are made from recycled materials by a group of Kenyan artisans reclaiming their own lives from poverty.
  • Accessorize for a holiday party with a silk scarf from the coast of Thailand. After the harvest season, the women of Thailand’s Surin Province put down the farming tools and take up the loom to hand-wove the beautiful Sabai scarves.
  • The BPA-Free 16 oz. eco cold cup comes in handy when on the run. Every sip is a reminder of those who’ve been helped.
You can also purchase charitable gifts of life-saving animals, clean water and gifts that benefit underprivileged women.
