Gifts that Give

Idea 2: World Vision "Building a better world for children"
"World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice."

World Vision offers many different ways to make an online donation which assists over 100 million people in over 100 countries. Here are a few of the donation options offered on their website:

2 chickens for $25
a goat and 2 chickens for $100
children's clothing for $30

How neat would it be to give a donation in someone's name?

You can view all of the options available for donations on their website,

Gifts that Give- Got Your Back Movement

Throughout the month of December I will be posting gifts that give. These are ones I've participated in in the past or plan to this Christmas. These could be great gifts for those super hard to buy for relatives. I love giving creative and thoughtful gifts that help show love to others.

The first Gift that Gives comes from the organization Got Your Back Movement. Every shirt you buy provides a school uniform for a student in need allowing them to attend school, therefore bettering their circumstances in life. Their mission statement is: "The Got Your Back Movement exists to restore purpose, give hope, and show love through the global distribution of school uniforms to children in need. Our mission is to create sustainable change in communities worldwide through the impact that education creates in all aspects of life." 
These are really cool shirts. I have one picked out I want for myself!

So, head over to Got Your Back and check them out!
