World Vision Turquoise NecklaceDisclosure:  World Vision sent me this amazing turquoise jewelry set to review and it is stunning. Please go to the World Vision site and see what they do to help children, it’s incredible.

A couple of years ago, I was at a conference, and met with some women who had been on a missions trip, and were able to see firsthand the difference that World Vision makes to some impoverished areas of the world. They shared stories, photographs, and I immediately knew that I wanted to help participate in some small way.

For me, personally, helping children is something I’ve always done, in whatever way I could. Being able to give them clean water, clothing, education, and medication makes me feel comforted, knowing basic life needs are being met. I knew I wasn’t in a position to do all of those things on my own, but as part of a group of women who went in together, each donating the amount they could and pooling it together, we are able to do that for some!

World VisionTHIS LINK will take you to a page where you can make a monthly or yearly donation. At just $20/mo, the donation will go to the area with the most urgent need to help a child.
