Caring Causes: World Vision for Mother's Day

Do you want to give your mother a meaningful gift to celebrate her generous spirit - or do you want a gift for yourself that will leave a lasting impact on communities around the world? More than $16.3 billion is expected to be spent on Mother’s Day this year, according to a National Retail Federation estimate. A new study, commissioned by World Vision, reveals almost one third of moms in America say they often pretend to like the Mother’s Day gifts they typically receive from family. Nearly two-thirds of moms say they would prefer to receive a meaningful gift that would help someone else instead of a traditional Mother’s Day gift such as flowers or a card. The survey also says most adults would like to honor mom by giving something that would empower other mothers. World Vision’s 2012 Spring/Summer Gift Catalog is full of meaningful gifts. Last year alone, the World Vision U.S. Gift Catalog raised more than $32 million providing help to more than 800,000 worldwide. This year’s goal: $34 million. World Vision launched the Gift Catalog in 1996. Since then it’s raised over $162 million dollars. When you order from World Vision's Gift Catalog, the honoree receives a thoughtful card. Some gifts even include a token gift for the recipient (such as fair-trade coffee or jewelry) in addition to providing life-saving work around the world. You can find more information at
