I have small hands, so this ring covers the whole section of my ring finger. I love the many facets on these stones. A picture definitely doesn’t do this ring justice. It’s so pretty.

    This reminds me of save the children’s donation that we give to each month where you can donate a different amount and it shows you what your dollars go too, i.e. 10 chickens, a new shack, or goats for a family. I like that this is set up similarly and it really helps out families in need. I don’t understand why hunger is such an issue in the world today. My family is struggling this year from my medical bills being so high since I have Lupus and even though I have very good insurance it is still not enough. This has been a very tough year and we have been eating one meal a day and some days I have been eating nothing…partly because I am so sick and partly because my husband needs it more since he works 120hrs a week to take care of us. I truly hope world hunger/starvation is wiped out before I die because it just makes no sense.

  38. donna porter says:

    What I like most about giving through the World Vision Gift Catalog is most of the gifts to help needy families all over the world are very inexpensive and easy for a middle class family to give. My children love picking out a gift for a needy family in the World Vision Gift Catalog every year and watching a video on how that gift helps out a family.

  44. Mary Gardner says:

    I like that buying gifts through World Vision helps people and families all over the world, including those here in the USA.
