TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Looking for the perfect #lastminutegift that is fun to give and will change the world this holiday season? Think chickens!  Two Hens and a Rooster is the most popular present from World Vision's Gift Catalogue. As a charity gift you make a real donation on behalf of a special person on your gift list, and you get a card or ecard to give them detailing the difference being made in their name.

You can order the ecard option anytime - so even if you're in a last-minute rush on Christmas morning you can still find a meaningful gift to give.
