Every one of us wants to make a difference, even in our own little way. World Vision is a global Christian humanitarian organization that aims to partner with people who are willing to help in addressing the needs of the poor and people in need. With the holidays fast approaching (gift-giving season), along with Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, the timing couldn’t be more perfect!
For the past 65 years, this organization has exerted all of their efforts in seeking justice and providing support for the oppressed and the poor. They do this by continuously developing programs that can benefit the children that are in need along with their families and communities.
Since 1996, this organization has been offering the World Vision’s Gift Catalog every year. This program aims to provide gifts that will not just have a positive impact not only on the receiver of the gift but also on the giver and the needy as well.
Through the World Vision’s Gift Catalog, you are able to find the perfect gift for your loved ones, spare yourself from the holiday shopping chaos and at the same time, have an opportunity to join the organization in their efforts to address the justice and poverty in the world.
