With the holiday season upon us, many of us want to give not only to our families and friends, but to give to charity as well. Here's a way to do both - choose a gift from the World Vision Gift Catalog!
When you make a donation to the World Vision Gift Catalog Maximum Impact Fund, your donations will be used where resources are most desperately needed, to help children and families in struggling communities around the world. With a financial contribution, the gift giver can select one of 36 Maximum Impact items that can be given to a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.
For instance, check out this beautiful Artisan Beaded Necklace! Handmade in Thailand, this colorful necklace can be worn several different ways — even as a multi-stranded bracelet. Approximate size is 44" around (22" long when worn as a single necklace).
I had the chance to receive an Artisan Beaded Necklace, and I found it to be a simple yet lovely gift! It arrived in a small silky bag, perfect for gift presentation. I loved how the large colorful round glass beads, interspersed with medium cylindrical beads, were knotted into the triple strands that make up the necklace. Between each pair of circular and cylindrical beads were three smaller beads in different colors.
The long length made it a lovely decorative accessory for a button-down blouse or sweater. You can double it over, and it becomes a shorter necklace that I could still put on (there is no clasp). Looped six times around my wrist, it became a chunky and fun bracelet.
I definitely will be wearing this necklace to holiday events!
