True Christmas spirit | Blog 1 of the 12 blogs of Christmas

Our 12 blogs of Christmas represent the creativity, love, joy, hope, memories, and family traditions that connect us to the true reason for the season.

Starting today, World Vision bloggers are linking up to spread the true spirit of Christmas. Our 12 blogs of Christmas represent the creativity, love, joy, hope, memories, and family holiday traditions that keep us connected to the true reason for the season.

One way each of us can celebrate the true spirit of Christmas is by helping World Vision help children and families all over the world. While you may not be able to afford to sponsor a child (or maybe you do already), the World Vision Gift Catalog is a wonderful way to give something of value (something that’s sustainable) to a family in need!

The Gift Catalog is filled with a wide variety of gift ideas that people all over the world need — things that often help a family become healthy, live sustainably, and experience some hope in their situations …

 

My favorite thing to give is animals.

But there are hundreds of other gift ideas …

You can even help children and families here in the United States.

Over the next few weeks, as you engage, share, search for, and/or experience the true spirit of Christmas, take a moment to blog about what that means to you and consider giving the spirit of Christmas to somebody in need from around the world …

Here’s to a happy, healthy, and hopeful holiday season for all of us.
