Gift Guide: For the person who has everything!

Do you have someone in  your life who means a lot to you but you just can't seem to figure out what to give them for Christmas? You know, the friend or family member who has it all!

Why not give them the gift of helping others? You know I have a soft spot for Non-Profit Organizations. Why not make a donation in their name to an an organization close to their heart. Or adopt a child off the Angel Tree in their name. Or sponsor a child, family, young woman through
World Vision.

"World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities world wide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice"

The concept of World Vision is REALLY COOL. I think I might have found another to add to my already long list of non-profits that I support.

Not only can you
sponsor a child for $35 a month. You can give to so many different causes, for example: send clothing to freezing children in Armenia, the Horn of Africa food crisis, give hope to sexually exploited young girls.... The. List. Goes. On.

You can help SO MANY different categories of people - Girls and Women, Kids in the USA, Orphans and Widows and donate to so many causes. It's all up to you where your money goes. Not someone taking a donation over a phone and putting it into one massive pool. You can decide on your own whose life you want to change.

By giving them the resources they need you can change their lives forever! Not only material things but job and skill training. These are simple things we take for granted.

You can give a family the gift of animals. These animals can provide them with almost endless amounts of food and nutrients.

For $100 you can provide a family with
a goat and 2 chickens.
For $18 you can provide a family with 3 ducks...
Newsflash that is about the cost of 4 Starbucks coffees. By sacrificing just a few pleasures you can provide a family with 100's of protein rich eggs every year.  That is just a few of the animals you can give, check out the Animal Gift Catalog.

I have not even scraped the surface of how you can give this Holiday season (and every other day of the year). If you are looking to feel truly warm and fuzzy this Holiday season and make a difference I highly suggest you check out World Vision. I know I will definitely be donating in my family's name.

I think this is awesome! A girl at my last job would do this for her parents and I always thought it would be a nice thing for a company to do or something!

Aw, this was a very good post. Taking a few minutes and actual
effort to produce a superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.

Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you
