MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - It is estimated that December 23rd is the busiest shopping day of the holiday season, last minute shoppers running around the mall getting their last minute gifts that they know won't suit the person they are buying for.
Instead of buying a lawnmower for mom this Christmas why not shop meaningful gifs from the comfort of your home as late as Christmas morning before everyone comes downstairs.
What do a goat, chicken, hen and rooster all have in common this holiday season? They can all be found under your tree, and they can get there quicker than Santa can! But how do you get them there? World Vision's Gift Catalogue has the answer, only a few clicks away.
The gift of 2 hens and a rooster can produce up to 150 eggs a year, which can be eaten, sold or hatched to provide a continual supply of nutritious food and essential income. With this income families can afford shelter, food, health care and education for their children.
"The Gift Catalogue is the perfect alternative gift-giving option for a loved one, a teacher, friend or even colleagues. It's a wonderful experience for both the gift-giver and the gift-receiver. Visit our website and shop online to get that perfect gift under the tree this holiday!" – Alicia Pereira, World Vision Gift Giving Expert
