‘Tis the season for giving, so why not give a gift with meaning?
World Vision Canada is trying to raise awareness of their gift catalogue for the holidays. You’ll feel good about adding any of these meaningful gifts to your list and the best part is that all the gifts help others.
Artisan gifts and apparel
These fair trade, handcrafted gifts made by artisans from around the world provide help where it’s needed the most. These beautiful and vibrant handmade scarves help lift the artisans out of poverty, and the artisans who made these pretty wire and bead ornaments received a World Vision micro-loan to start their business.

Animals provide vital nutrition to children and families, as well as extra income by giving animals. Hens and roosters provide an ongoing source of income, food and health. Alpacas can produce up to four kilograms of wool annually over a 15-20 year lifespan, which helps keep families warm and the extra wool can be sold or crafted into clothing, baskets and rugs to be sold at the market. Cows are a significant source of milk and additional income. View all animal gifts here.
