“From the artist’s hands in India who crafted this bowl to your dinner table where you will share a meal with your family, the ‘Woven Together’ sari bowl represents how we are all connected and woven together in life,” said Patricia Heaton. “For the seventh year in a row, I am partnering with World Vision to support underserved families nationwide during the holiday season. I invite you to join me in supporting World Vision’s work towards a world where all children thrive.” (Get with $90* donation to the World Vision Fund.)’
“I am thrilled to partner with World Vision again this holiday season with a handcrafted gift. Crafted by artists in Viet Nam, my ‘Wrapped in Peace’ silk scarf was created to help you find your ‘pockets of peace’ (the joy) in every day. Wear it as a scarf or wrap it around your purse for a little extra flair, and let it serve as a daily reminder to find peace & joy in your life!” said Melissa Joan Hart (Get with a $100* donation to the World Vision Fund.)
“Give a gift this holiday season that supports families living in extreme poverty around the globe with the ‘Faith and Grace gold cuff’. Expertly crafted from brass with a unique wiring finish, this cuff will give you a beautiful new piece of everyday jewelry while supporting the artisan in India who made it by hand.” said Meagan Good (Get with a $55* donation to the World Vision Fund).
“I am excited to partner with World Vision to present my sleek & sophisticated ‘Hope’ leather journal this holiday season,” said Kel Mitchell. “Naming the journal ‘Hope’ was only fitting as World Vision opens the door to hope for millions of families yearly in extreme poverty and shines God’s love over them.” (Get with $60* donation to the World Vision Fund)
Donations from most of the handcrafted gifts in the catalog go to the World Vision Fund, which addresses specific, urgent needs in World Vision’s humanitarian work that empower people out of poverty.
With the conflict in Ukraine leaving millions of children and families forcibly displaced from their homes, donations of $120* to the Ukraine Crisis Fund can receive the “All Things Possible” crossbody purse by Tayshia Adams.
“This holiday season, please think about the families in Ukraine whose lives have been changed forever by conflict in their country,” said Tayshia Adams. By gifting my ‘All Things Possible’ crossbody purse, World Vision can continue to aid those affected and give them a safe place to stay.”
