World Vision

Today’s mail brought a fancy pants catalog from National Geographic (alpalca sweaters! Pearl bracelets! Handmade Christmas ornaments!) and a catalog from World Vision. I surprised myself by spending more time with the World Vision one. I know, it sounds goofy to buy your brother a goat for Christmas, but what a fun present to give as a family —

I’m going with the sale — the school supply donation that is matched 10x by corporate sponsors. Because I can’t resist a bargain.

This year, I’m going to let my kids shop this catalog instead of the Toys R Us catalog that made its way into their hands last year. We’re going to talk about choosing to give instead of get. I wonder what they’ll choose — pigs? Ducks? New clothes for kids to wear to school?  I can’t wait to find out.
