Handmade Gifts that Produce Hope

December 27, 2011

A little late for gift ideas for this Christmas shopping season, but one to keep on the radar for gift buying for birthdays, Mom’s day, and next Christmas, etc., is WorldCrafts handmade gifts from around the world.  WorldCrafts has a vision to “offer an income with dignity and the hope of everlasting life to every person on earth.”

Handmade Gifts from WorldCrafts
The Fall and Winter catalog has some beautiful handmade items for the friend, sister, mom, daughter, aunt, teacher or grandmother in your life. I only wish I had found out about this organization before Christmas, but I plan on doing a lot of my gift buying at WorldCrafts next year.

Some of the items that most impressed me were a handmade, beautiful, turquoise necklace for $44.99, silk table runners for less than $30, one of a kind totes from $15 to $45 and an array of handmade Christmas ornaments, stationery, and jewelry.

I’m excited about this resource because it is what I call a Real World Christian missions organization; sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ while simultaneously providing opportunity to poverty stricken families, and young women recovering from human trafficking and the exploitation of prostitution often times a desperate means to provide for their children; a combination which fulfills the following scriptures

“And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?”

 “If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?”

Maybe I should mention, I have no affiliation with WorldCrafts or Women’s Missionary Union (WMU), the founding organization, and in no way do I benefit from promoting these products.  I’m just truly pleased to find a place where my purchases can benefit brothers and sisters across the globe. Most of us do a certain amount of gift buying every year, why not purchase with purpose?
