World Vision Gift Catalog Review & Giveaway

Pin It
I was overjoyed to be able to share in a World Vision Gift Catalog review & giveaway. This book has always been so intriguing to me and I have been wanting to purchase something from it for years. 

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 (a few are listed below) that can be given to a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.

 I received my sample gift along with a catalog in the mail.
In it, you will find many gifts you can purchase for someone less fortunate than yourself. Some of the items you can choose from are goats, bunnies, ducks, a well of clean water, a year's worth of school for an orphan, fruit trees, Bibles, newborn care, a small business loan and SO much  more. There is even a section to choose gifts for families in the USA. 
You can give a gift in the Maximum impact section of the gift catalog, in someone else’s honor. In exchange, you will also receive a gift to give them.
 One of the gifts is the VeggieTales Incredible Vegetables DVD that I received. With a $50 purchase from the Maximum Impact catalog, you can receive this fun DVD to gift to someone you love.

There are lots of other cute & interesting gifts to choose from as well.

Here's a video that talks about how the whole process works...


I am hosting a giveaway for a lucky reader to receive their own copy of the VeggieTales DVD pictured above. Please take a look at the World Vision website and consider donating to a wonderful cause.

Sunday Social

Came across this adorable blog & meme and I just had to jump aboard the hop! 
A Complete Waste of Makeup has such a beautiful clean layout, she pulled me right in. Hope you'll go on over and check out her blog. 

This weeks questions:

What is currently on your wish list?

I really would love the new iPhone 5, a KitchenAid mixer, and the seasons of Smallville & Parks & Recreation

What's a new fall TV show you've added to your DVR?

Well, I don't have DVR but a new show I've come to love is Parks & Recreation. I'm all about comedies.

Share your Social Media links for us to follow you on (pinterest, twitter, facebook, etc) Tell us which is your favorite and why?

Google +

My favorite is probably a tie between Facebook & Pinterest. Facebook because I like to keep in contact with my friends & Pinterest is just plain fun!

What is a TV show or Movie or Song you could listen to or watch over and over and over and never get tired of…feel free to name one of each:

TV show: The Office
Movie: Mr & Mrs Smith
Song: anything by Imogen Heap- she's so soothing

Link up & join in! Have a great Sunday.
