Gifts with Purpose

“For me, the only thing worse than trying to buy gifts for the person “who has everything”, is being the gift-recipient who “needs nothing” – knowing that people feel that they HAVE to buy me something for my birthday or special occasion, and that they’ll likely buy me an item that is useless to me. That’s why for the past few Christmases and birthdays, I’ve tried to ask specifically for people to give to an alternative project of some sort. If they feel like they MUST do something, do something in my honor that will benefit someone else who has needs greater than mine.”

Mother’s Day is just 3 days away and Father’s Day is just around the corner! We are also entering the summer season of birthdays! Remember those people who are so hard to shop for? Can’t find a gift someone needs because their needs are met? Here is the answer for gift-giving this year!

Encompass World Partners produces an annual gift catalog. This catalog is filled with things you can purchase to help people across the world in need. The best part?…you can give in honor of someone! Instead of buying something that your mom, dad, or friend cannot use, why not give a gift that has eternal value?
