Review and giveaway: Prosperity Cinnamon Box from the World Vision Gift Catalog

*Disclosure: I received this item to review for myself.  I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

My kitchen smells really nice right now, thanks to the arrival of a beautiful little box of cinnamon. This box is a featured item in the World Vision gift catalog for 2014.  Here's a bit about this box:


Help where it's needed most...AND get a gift for yourself or someone you care about! Your gift to where most needed will help 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 box of cinnamon. Vietnam's renowned sweet cinnamon is a renewable resource collected from the Cassia tree, sold to benefit generations of hard working families. This beautifully carved cinnamon bark box contains 3 oz. of cinnamon and bears a common Asian character for prosperity.
My family has been World Vision donors for years now, with multiple sponsored kids.  We've also been longtime donors through the gift guide.  This guide offers you ways to donate to specific causes like medical care or clean drinking water, for people in need around the world. Or you can choose to donate to whatever cause World Vision feels is most urgent, and for those donations, you can receive beautiful handcrafted gifts like this cinnamon box or gorgeous jewelry.  I like to go through the guide with my kids and help them pick causes that they are interested in.  For example, since my kids are both in school this year, we may choose to donate to education causes. Where do you want your money to go this year? Explore the World Vision Gift Catalog and choose for yourself!

And I have good news- one lucky reader will win one of these beautiful little Prosperity Cinnamon Boxes! Open to US mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below. a Rafflecopter giveaway

I love the Cinnamon Box because it supports a great cause and I am a little obsessed with cinnamon. I use it daily in everything from oatmeal to baked apples. I also love the smell and enjoy burning cinnamon scented candles. Thanks for the giveaway and spreading the word about World Vision.

I would love to have this. I think Cinnamon is possibly my favorite scent. My kitchen needs to smell more like people food and less like doggie food too.

I live it for so many reasons.....I love that this company gives back to those in need. I love that it's such a beautiful hand carved piece that I would enjoy having. I love that it's cinammon as that's my favorite spice and I use it often. I especially make a lot of cinammon stuff around the holidays as I live the way it makes the house smell..... This box is so pretty, I'd use it long after the cinammon is gone.... Thank you for the chance to win this lovely prize.
