‘Tis the season to shower your loved ones with gifts, and although it’s fun to give the latest and greatest presents under the tree, sometimes the most meaningful gifts are the ones that keep on giving.
Canadian comedy veterans and husband and wife duo, Colin Mochrie and Debra McGrath, stopped by to tell us how we can help change lives this holiday season, thanks to the World Vision Gift Catalogue.
Take a look at some of the gifts featured in the catalogue below!
Give the gift of giving with these meaningful holiday gifts
Mom and Baby CareGive kids a better start to life by providing expectant or new moms with things like vitamins, delivery kits, mothering workshops and more. With Canadian government grants, your gift multiplies 8X in value!
Girls Hygiene KitsMenstruation can make attending school difficult or impossible when girls don’t have the right supplies. These kits equip girls with reusable pads, soap, washcloths and extra underwear, and help them stay in school.
Artisan giftsThe World Vision gift catalogue has a variety of artisan gifts and apparel that are often made by people in the communities you’re helping to support. For instance, when you choose this fair-trade brass “Love” necklace , you help the artisans from Kenya who handcrafted it earn a fair wage – and a portion of the proceeds also goes to help vulnerable children and families wherever the need is greatest.
AlpacasAlpacas produce up to 4kg of wool each year – and it’s highly valued because it’s quite rare. It’s as soft as cashmere, and lighter and warmer than traditional wool – and it’s also hypo-allergenic. Families learn how to generate income from the alpaca’s wool, using it to produce clothing, blankets, and other products. World Vision Alpacas are given exclusively in the Andean countries of Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru, where they are native.
Ever day from December 2nd until Christmas Eve, The Social will purchase a different item from the World Vision gift catalogue to help children and families in need. Be sure to follow our Instagram stories to see our special World Vision advent calendar featuring the item we’re donating each day.
