The holidays are right around the corner. Do you have someone that is hard to shop for? Someone that has everything or doesn’t need anything? Then the World Vision Gift Catalog is the perfect place to buy their gift.

Through World Vision Gift Catalog you can give a gift that “gives-back” this holiday season. World Vision Gift Catalog has over 250 life-changing gifts that help fight poverty and save lives in the US and around the globe. You can purchase gifts like a Chicken, Clean Water, Fruit Trees for families around the globe or buy an Artisan Necklace (or other hand-crafted gift) and the proceeds go there is the most need.

I know we often get caught up in all the holiday chaos that we often forget the true heart of the holidays. I true to build in intentional moments of giving to help teach my boys that Christmas is more than just getting gifts. Our kids learn from us, so the example we set will teach them to make compassionate decisions.

Here are a few ways you can be intentional about giving:

  • Organize a family giving night and have kids select charitable gifts from an organization such as the World Vision Gift Catalog. Talk with your children about how giving back changes lives of children and families living in poverty and that their efforts truly make a difference.
  • Host a house party for friends and family and ask your guests to contribute to a share of a group gift such as a farm animal, winter clothing or school supplies to families in need, or even a water well. Make the selection of the item, how to raise funds for that gift, and the collection of the money a collaborative, group effort.
  • Celebrate Giving Tuesday – After Black Friday and Cyber Monday holiday shopping, consider celebrating Giving Tuesday (12/3) and make meaningful, life-changing gift purchases such as medicine, mosquito nets or a fish pond.
  • Be active in your giving — volunteer at your local homeless shelter or senior living center; cook a meal or bake cookies for an elderly family member or neighbor.
