Let me take a short break from pizza to make a pitch for a deserving charity.
With the holidays coming up, it's time to start thinking about giving - giving thanks, giving presents, and giving help to our fellow human beings who need it. So let me take a moment of your time to make a pitch for the World Vision Gift Catalog. Purchases from the catalog support World Vision's efforts to help children and families in struggling communities around the world. That includes activities both abroad and right here in the U.S., most recently in the form of relief to victims of Hurricane Sandy.
You can help World Vision either through a direct contribution, or by shopping at its online store. One of the great things about buying from World Vision is that not only does your money go toward helping others, but many of the items available for purchase, like this bracelet and this scarf, have been hand made by people in need, in countries around the globe. Check out World Vision Gift Catalog's Facebook and Pinterest pages for more information.
World Vision also gets a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, so you know that your gift is being put to good use.
Talk ahout getting bang for your buck - with a purchase from World Vision, you'll be brightening the lives of both your gift recipient and persons in need, and you'll feel better about yourself for doing so. This holiday season, then, please consider either making a direct gift to World Vision or doing some of your gift shopping through World Vision
