Do you still have people on your list to buy for? People that seem to have everything? Why not make a donation in their name and change a life! And if you choose to donate to the Maximum Impact Fund, you will receive a physical gift for yourself or for your loved one. Here are a few of the possibilities:
When gift-givers make a donation through 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 (a few listed below) to wear, carry, use or give to a loved one. Most of the Maximum Impact Fund items available in the catalog are made by micro-enterprising artisans around the world and the sale proceeds directly benefit their communities.
- 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.
- Dish up a salad with unique hand-carved serving spoons made with care to benefit orphans in Kenya.
- Accessorize for a 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.
As thanks for my time in writing this post, World Vision sent me the hand-carved serving spoons- and they're gorgeous! I can't wait to use them at our housewarming party next month. And I have good news- one of you will also receive these pretty spoons! Enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.
