Hearts For Hearts Girls-Changing The World One Heart at a Time #Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide

Can you believe it will soon be Thanksgiving? I cannot believe how quickly the holidays will be upon us. When you are looking at the doll lovers on your holiday gift guide, why not get them a doll that makes a difference? The Hearts For Hearts Dolls, empower girls to become agents of change in their communities, countries and around the world.

How do these dolls make a difference?

The Hearts For Hearts Dolls are from different countries and include; Rahel from Ethiopia, Dell from the USA, Consuelo from Mexico, and Nahji from India. Each doll has an important story to tell about life in her country, inspired by the stories of real girls who are strong, smart, courageous, and determined to rise above challenging circumstances.

For every doll sold, Hearts For Hearts Girls makes a $1 donation to their charitable partner, World Vision, a global humanitarian organization that supports children through local programs. Whether it’s malaria nets in Africa, schoolbooks in Asia, or food supplies in the US, these programs help kids to thrive and succeed.

These dolls are beautiful, I recently received Dell from the USA. She comes packed in a nice box with a front flap that opens to reveal the doll and accessories. Check out my video below for an in-depth look at Dell and everything she comes with.

These dolls are helping to change the world one heart at a time, and you can be a part of that dream! We like them so much, we are adding them to our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide at Mommy Ramblings.

The Most Meaningful Gift Is Life-Giving #GiftCatalog #Giveaway

I don’t know if you ventured out on Black Friday or are surfing the Internet for Cyber Monday deals, but I will tell you that if you are looking for a meaningful gift, I may be able to help. In keeping with the sentiment, “It is better to give than receive.”, take a moment and check out the 2015 World Vision Gift Catalog. World Vision provides donors the opportunity to give a gift in a loved one’s name, making these the perfect presents to show family and friends love and to spread the joy of the holiday season across the world. And, as an added bonus, there’s nothing to wrap!

Donations of livestock like goats, fruit trees, soccer balls, education for girls and women and much more can be donated in a person’s name to make a truly unique and life-giving gift. When you think about the impact something like this can have on a life this gift truly is priceless.
