Review and giveaway (and information!): World Vision's Holiday Gift Guide

*Disclosure: I received a small toy to review, as thanks for my time in writing this post. All opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

Every year, close to the holiday time, my mailbox starts filling up with gift guides from various charities.  One that I always donate to is the catalog from World Vision Gift Guide.  World Vision is a local company that does a lot of good work around the world.  I've had sponsored children through their program for years, but the gift  guide is a great way to give a little extra.  My family usually picks items that are relevant to our lives- baby items when my little ones were babies, medical when we have health issues, and this year probably early education, since my kids are in school. That's just our method- there's no wrong way to give! Here's a bit about the catalog, from a press release that I received:

The World Vision Gift Catalog offers more than 250 items that help fight poverty and save lives here in US and around the world. With a financial contribution, donors can select one of the 30+ Handcrafted Gifts that can be shared with a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.
One of the items that you can receive with a donation is Gertie the Plush Goat: Gertie is available exclusively through World Vision and represents farm animals that are donated to children and families around the world and provide a steady supply of nutritious food and the surplus can be sold for extra income.  I received this item and Vivian is crazy about it. "Lamb", as she calls the toy, has been going everywhere with us this week! 




I have good news- one of you will win a little plush lamb for yourself!  Open to US mailing addresses only, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.

I'd love to win this for my sister. She is due with her first child after trying for over a year and a half. I will become an aunt for the first time and this would be the perfect animal to put right next to her crib before she arrives.

I would love to win this little guy for my Granddaughter. When we were little, we had goats on our farm. I often tell her the story of when my sister, brother and me went out and got 2 sets of twin baby goats and brought them in the house. Everything was good until my Dad came in and said What are you doing now! He scared one of the little goats and he jumped from the bed to the dresser. Of course we didn't bring baby goats in the house again, but my Granddaughter just laughs. She would love this, for when she tells the story to her friends. Thanks for the chance.
