World Vision Ornament Set Review & Giveaway

I love to watch my children’s reactions when they notice a new ornament on the Christmas tree.  They first circle around it, then lean in close to peer at it, before finally gently touching it.  I knew this Ornament set from World Vision was going to be a great addition to our Christmas tree and it is also a great way to help a person in need!

Whether it’s the first draft of a gift list, a photo idea for holiday cards, or a location for a family gathering, many of us are already thinking of and planning for the holidays. The giving season quickly becomes too busy and hectic. Many of us forget the true meaning of the winter holidays. But a little thought and advanced planning make it easy to keep your heart in the holidays. Here are some ideas:

  • 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
  • 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.

The World Vision Gift Catalog offers more than 250 items that help fight poverty and save lives here in US and around the world. With a financial contribution, donors can select one of the 30+ Handcrafted Gifts that can be shared with a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.

Help where it’s needed most … AND get a gift for yourself or someone you care about! With your gift of $150 or more to our Maximum Impact Fund — which provides for the unique needs of children and families worldwide — you will receive this beautiful set of handmade Zakale wire & bead ornaments from Nairobi. Zakale crafts are made from recycled materials by Kenyan artisans, who received a loan from World Vision to grow their business and lift themselves out of poverty.

Ornament sizes vary by animal (giraffe 4″ x 1½”, elephant 2½” x 3″ & water buffalo 2 7/10 ” x 2½”).

My take:  I don’t know if I can adequately express in words how absolutely charming these three ornaments are.  They will capture your attention due to the craftmanship, level of detail and how gorgeous the beading work is.  I can’t wait to get my Christmas tree up so we can see how the lights will sparkle off of these ornaments.  Even more importantly when you purchase a gift from World Vision you are helping families worldwide.

World Vision is generously offering 1 lucky MommyPR reader their very own ornament set!
