World Vision Catalog and Mango Wood Beaded Bracelet Review and Giveaway


I like to give back whenever I can, especially when purchasing gifts for special occasions or needed things for family, friends, and those who may need a helping hand. I’ve been teaching my children the impact of this choice in hopes they will share this practice with others they know and follow in my footsteps. With that being said, I’d like to shed the light on World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice. 

World Vision has a catalog available in print as well as on-line that one can choose from over 250 life changing gifts to help serve the immediate needs of those who need it the most. These sorts of gifts include help in providing clean water, giving animals to raise ( chickens, goats, cow, ducks, etc), sewing machines, career training, clothes & shoes, medicine, and many more things. These gifts have the ability to give others the chance to change their lives for the better! Goat_2_Chickens_D4041317

In addition to donating, you can purchase a gift from the handcrafted gifts available which come from places such as Africa, India, Southeast Asia, and Vietnam. There are scarves, bracelets, necklaces, ornaments, coffee, and so on. These gifts have starting donation price but you are given the option to give even more than that if you chose! A little bit goes along way especially if others are also encouraged to do so by spreading the word. I like I can give gifts to my family and friends and know that my contribution will help others a be a huge blessing! In donating, the recipient will receive further details in a card that describes the impact of the gift given.  DSCN4524

I received the Mango Wood Beaded Bracelet from the Handcrafted Gifts offered through World Vision from Indonesia. This bracelet is beautiful! I was afraid it wasn’t going to fit me because I have smaller wrist than average but it fit me perfectly! The strands of beads the bracelet is made up of are stretchy. The wood is smooth and sturdy. When worn I’ve found the bracelet very comfortable against the skin. I like knowing this bracelet is made on the island of Java by a creative community and in making these they retain a sustainable income to care for their families. It’s Free with a donation of $45 or more.d4042081-mango-wood-bracelet_2
