World Vision is an international Christian organization that works to make the lives of children around the world better. I was excited to learn more about this and how I can help. They offer a Christmas Gift Catalog and purchases from this catalog go toward many life changing things such as: goats, chickens, safe homes, clean water, milk, food, medicines, bibles...just so many things that I have at hand. It's hard to imagine not having these type things when needed. It really makes you thankful for what you have. There are many great gifts available for purchase in the Christmas Catalog. I received a beautiful African Soapstone Box. This is a hand carved soapstone box etched by local artisans in Kenya. It is so beautiful and unique. I can't wait to use it on my desk at school. It will defiantly help me remember how blessed I am and how I am called to help those who are not!! I plan to do some shopping in the World Vision Christmas Catalog. That's what the true meaning of Christmas is about...giving!
