Last year you might recall me writing about a company called World Vision. While my intention was to encourage you all to consider World Vision for your holiday needs, charitable donations can be made year round!
Whether it’s for the tax deduction or the warm fuzzy feeling giving to others generates, most Americans plan to make a charitable donation over the holiday season. In fact, nearly 60 percent of Americans say they’ll donate between Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to a survey reported in the Chronicle of Philanthropy.
With so many worthy causes, it is difficult to know where the gift can best be used. Gifts to the World Vision Gift Catalog Maximum Impact Fund are used where resources are most desperately needed, to help children and families in struggling communities around the world. With a financial contribution, the gift giver can select one of 36 Maximum Impact items that can be given to a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.
This year we are featuring three adorable plush toys: Gertie Goat, Chuma Chick and Pallu Pig: Gertie, Chuma and Pallu are available exclusively through World Vision and represent 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.
Aren’t they adorable? I love knowing that every time my kids snuggles one of these adorable little animals, a child somewhere is able to love on a live animal because of donations made to World Vision.
It’s pretty amazing!
