As you know World Vision is a Christian humanitarian agency that helps people in extreme poverty around the world so when you buy from them this holiday season you are truly helping a good cause; I recently was sent a Christmas Star Ornament which is made from castoff metals by artisans helping to support children’s education in India.
My Opinion: When this first arrived at my house I was amazed at how light is for a metal ornament and knowing why it is made makes it even more special. Every time I see this on my tree I will be grateful for what I have and think of ways to help others.
You can also buy silver vines cuff, provide 5 ducks for a family for 1 year, hand carved serving spoons and more at http://donate.worldvision.org/ways-to-give/by-category/handcrafted-gifts/christmas-star-ornament
