Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

As socially responsible giving grows in popularity, many people find themselves wondering which products actually impact society or where they can find them. Lack of knowledge is often the reason people do not increase their socially responsible shopping. With World Vision’s Gift Catalog, you can be sure your shopping is helping people around the world.

The 2015 World Vision Gift Catalog contains more than 250 poverty-fighting gifts, ranging in price from $16 to $39,000, that improve the quality of life for struggling children and families in the U.S. and around the world. This holiday season, give help where it is most needed and receive beautiful handcrafted jewelry for yourself or your loved ones.

I have been impressed with World Vision's work since I was in high school and participated in the 30-hour famine. They are consistently rated well in terms of charitable work,and they work in a variety of specific causes around the world. In fact, my daughter did a project for World Vision's education initiative last year, and plans to again, as soon as she replenishes her stock of crafts to sell.
