Spend once, give twice to those in need with World Vision Gifts

Looking for a way to give back this holiday season? Give back to someone in need living outside of the United States and in poverty by donating to World Vision.

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization that provides long-term solutions to poverty, emergency humanitarian assistance and advocates on behalf of the poor. World Vision works in nearly 100 countries including the U.S.

The way it works is that donors can look through the World Vision Gift Catalog and pick a gift. The catalog features goats and over 100 other life-saving gifts that help families live better lives:

  • One goat can help lift a family out of poverty by providing life-saving nutrients for their children and a source of income often for ten years or more.
  • One healthy goat can give up to 16 cups of milk a day.
  • Families can sell the surplus milk, yogurt and cheese to buy essentials like medicine and school supplies for their children.
  • A healthy goat can produce 2 offspring a year which are often shared with neighbors making a better life for the whole village  .
  • Goats also provide rich fertilizer for a family’s garden.

The best part is these gifts aren't expensive; gifts range from $16 to $50,000. Donors can give the gift in the name of a loved one and then choose to send them a personalized card describing their gift and how it will change a life.

Shoppers can also benefit from "shop once, give twice"by selecting a gift to go along with their donation. When shoppers make a donation to help where it is needed most at World Vision they can select from a variety of handcrafted gifts such as jewelry, scarves, coffee and coasters as a memento.

    I’m a donkey person. I have a couple. And these “below poverty level outside the US” places have many many donkeys and the are terribly abused daily. A small donkey like on the show can only carry safely 50 lbs. But you see them piled up with crap constantly! And if the donkey refuses, it’s because they are very cautious and intelligent, not stubborn. So these kind of idiots beat them! And you fat Americans that do things like ride them when a tourist or playing “donkey basketball” because some school thought it’s a funny way to raise money, you are hurting them! So take care of your family and neighbors. This sounds like another money maker hiding behind false promises to me anyway. And the donks are already out there being abused and slaughtered in huge numbers by the “poverty level third world places”.

    Continued- Now that my feeling of using donks for their bogus collection is done. And it is a bogus way to get people to think they take care of the world. You really think they will buy anyone a chicken? They may collect money for their “charity” but not till the president of this place gets his $555,500 a year. And the c.f.o. gets his $350,000 a year. And so on down the list. And of course many other big “charities” are worse. But this one picked a donkey to play this game and really set me off. So people, charity starts at home and your own neighborhood!
