My husband and I like to give to charity and do so regularly throughout the year. However, come Christmas time, we like to do something more to help those in need.
One fantastic option is World Vision. World Vision offers several levels of donation that come with a free gift. For instance, you could give $100 and receive, for free, an artisan multi-colored necklace.
Another gift, perfect for the baker in your family, is the $85 donation that also includes a free Cinnamon Box from Vietnam. I received this one for review purposes and loved it. The cinnamon is tasty and smells wonderful. Even more impressive is that the cinnamon comes in a box made out of cinnamon bark, which means the box smells heavenly, too. On the top of the box is the Asian character for prosperity.
Remember, these gifts are tax deductible, minus the price of the product. For instance, of the $85 you donate to receive the free cinnamon box, $19 of your money is used for the price of the cinnamon box, and the remaining $66 goes toward charitable giving and can be counted as such on your tax return.
You can look through World Vision’s gift catalog to find the perfect gift for those on your gift list. Gifts can range from donating a rabbit for $19 to donating a foot-powered water pump for $200. If you’d like to give a hand-crafted gift (like the Cinnamon Box above), visit World Vision’s hand crafted gifts page. There are 20 gifts to choose from.
