World Vision Hand Crafted Gifts Review

I’m taking a brief break from tech to focus for a moment on a Christian humanitarian organization, World Vision. World Vision provides disaster relief, education, economic development, clean water, child protection, and more almost 100 countries around the world. The distribution of chickens, goats, clothing, education supplies, medical care, and clean water are some of the many ways they help people in need.

What are some of the ways you can support World Vision? You can choose a gift in World Vision’s Gift Catalog, send a card in honor of a loved one, donate to where most needed, or choose from one of the free Handmade Gifts.  When you donate to where most needed, you can choose a free handmade gift such as fair trade coffee, Christmas ornaments, jewelry, and other items. There are gifts in every price bracket, from $25 to $125. Today, we’ll look at the Colors of Africa Bracelet and Earring Set.

The pair of earrings and bracelet World Vision gave me are adorned with beautiful recycled glass beads. The matching earrings have purple, green, blue, and red beads. Each earring is roughly 2 inches long, and has varying sizes of beads.

The adjustable chain bracelet, decorated with multicolored beads and wire hearts, is roughly 9 inches long.

Here’s how the purchase of this set will help people in need: “With your gift of $100 or more to where most needed — which provides for the unique needs of children and families worldwide — you will receive a gorgeous Zakale bracelet and earring set from Nairobi. Zakale crafts are made from recycled materials by Kenyan artisans, who received a loan from World Vision to grow their business and lift themselves out of poverty.”

All in all, buying a handmade gift is a great way to support World Vision’s ministries. Plus, you get something beautiful, useful, and special for yourself or a friend!

PS: If you order your gift by the 16th, it will come in time for Christmas.
