World Vision Gift Catalog and Thai 100% Silk Scarf Review and Giveaway

This review and giveaway is sponsored by World Vision.

The true meaning of this and every holiday season should be giving and what better way to do that than to create a Christmas list through World Vision and their Gift Catalog. World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.

In their catalog you can choose from more than 250 meaningful, life-changing gifts to meet the essential, immediate needs of children and their families around the world. These alternative gift ideas such as: animals (goats, sheep, cows, chickens, pigs, oxen, ducks, donkeys, rabbits, alpacas), sewing machines, bicycles, education and training, homes, clothes and shoes, clean water, fruit trees, honey bees, supplies and tools, medicine, etc. - honor the recipient and make a lasting impact for people in need. The catalog also offers a wide variety of 30+ gifts to match the interests and hobbies of the gift recipient to make the gift giving more meaningful. The recipient of the gift you give, whether a friend or family member, will get a special card describing the gift and its impact. Also with a contribution to the Maximum Impact Fund donors can also receive free handmade items from around the world: such as ornaments, jewelry, scarves, totes, etc. These donations help the areas of greatest need.



The World Vision website has a online tool allowing individuals the option to make a personal My Gift Catalog page at www.mygiftcatalog.org for personalized fundraising. The individual can then encourage family and friends to visit their page and purchase a gift from the catalog instead of or in addition to traditional holiday presents. You can use this during all year round too, such as: the holiday season, birthdays, weddings, graduations or other celebrations.

You can also join the "Share Joy With the World" Advent Challenge on their blog where World Vision would love for you to participate in a suggested activity each day to share joy and share your experience with friends, family, etc.

You can also learn more about some of the recipients of the items purchased from the gift catalog through their Facebook page.

From the Handcrafted Gifts category I received the Thai 100% Silk Scarf for free to facilitate this review. This gorgeous purple Sabai scarf is hand-woven by the hard-working women of Thailand’s Surin Province on a loom into distinctive striped patterns. I absolutely love the colors and it is made of a lovely material. I love to wear this in so many different ways. It is so versatile.

Approximate size of scarf is 66" long by 16" wide. Each is unique - size and color may vary slightly.
