World Vision Gifts: Enter to win a Fair Trade Coffee Set!

photo-28

For the person who has everything, or for the shopper who doesn’t want to purchase another meaningless gift, the World Vision Gift Catalog offers an alternative (or addition to) traditional holiday gift giving.The catalog has more than 250 items ranging in price from $16 to $39,000 that help children and families in need here in U.S. and around the world.

Included in the catalog are several items that foodies on everyone’s gift list might enjoy such as Family Food Kitfarm animalsfruit treesdrought-resistant seeds and many more. In addition, World Vision offers Maximum Impact Fund gifts that are used where resources are most desperately needed.

With a financial contribution, the gift giver can select one of 36 items that can be given to a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.

I recently chose this Fair Trade Coffee Set that includes coffee from Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Costa Rica blended by OneCup.org and is delivered in a baghand-sewn by local women with a hand-carved olivewood scoop. The bag is beautiful and well-made, and the olivewood scoop is very unique.

If you’d like your very own Fair Trade Coffee Set or would like to give it to someone as a gift, leave a comment for me below — and share this post via Facebook or Twitter. I will pick a winner at the end of the week and have the coffee sent directly to you!

You can find the World Vision Facebook page here and World Vision’s Pinterest page here.

    That’s a creative way to raise funds for a worthy cause while getting a nice gift for someone!

  2. This looks like a great way to thank your clients as well as your “hard to buy for” family member. Buy them a gift and it helps someone else. That’s a “win-win!”

  8. What a shame. Aside from being fair trade…that scoop alone would’ve been a great find lol. Too little too late 😉
