Every year around this time, I love to support special groups that help our people and children around the world. Not only can I give something special I am helping others. This year its World Vision.
World Vision is an international partnership of Christians whose mission is to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice, and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God.
They have some of the prettiest things, and every thing sold is used towards someone in need . The 2016 World Vision Gift Catalog contains more than 250 poverty-fighting gifts, ranging in price from $16 to $39,000, that improve the quality of life for struggling children and families in the U.S. and around the world.
