Are you looking to make a difference this holiday season? You can do your holiday shopping and help tackle poverty all at the same time when you shop with World Vision. World Vision is a humanitarian organization that is dedicated to working with children, families and their communities to reach their full potential.

For the last decade, World Vision has provided shoppers with the opportunity to better the lives members of our local communities as well as our global community. World Vision's catalog features handcrafted gifts made by people in need all over the world. Your purchase will go to where it will make the biggest impact and will help change lives of those in need.

I recently received a preview of some of World Visions catalog items and I have got to tell you, I am so incredibly impressed by the craftsmanship behind these products.

Here is a sample of some of the gorgeous items you can choose for yourself or a loved one. This gold Hope Bracelet, for instance, was designed by TV's favorite mom, Patricia Heaton! It pairs wonderfully with this wraparound ring made by fair trade artisans in India.

Also picture is a gold and sliver plated necklace that is certainly a statement piece! I love how the colors play off of each other in this pairing.

Perhaps my favorite item is this infinity scarf done in various hues of blue. The scarf was made by weavers in South India who have been trained how to use a loom to help them attain sills and a sustainable livelihood.

I also adore this hand-embroidered tote handcrafted by disabled women in Vietnam. These brave women are working towards gaining independence by selling these extraordinary pieces of artwork!

All purchases are tax deductible and support an incredible cause. Be sure to stop by World Vision to check out their online catalog. Forget supporting large chains this holiday season, support this incredible cause and help fight poverty by supporting World Vision.
