November is all about giving thanks, being thankful for what you have, and opening your heart to kindness and generosity. This is so that way when Thanksgiving comes, you can gather with your family, friends, or loved ones, and truly celebrate what it means to be alive.


World Vision and I partnered for a special giveaway this month where one lucky reader will win a set of Wooden Handcrafted Serving Spoons. These gorgeous spoons will look great on your table this holiday season, and you get to know that it all was for a great cause. World Vision is a Christian Humanitarian Organization dedicated to working with families, children, and poverty stricken communities.

Working in over 100 countries to help stop human trafficking by giving women and girls education and job training, emergency assistance to families affected by natural disasters and civil conflict, and even helping to develop underprivileged communities long term, so they too can have a better and brighter future.

Spoons    This beautiful set I chose for a giveaway of two Hand-Carved Olivewood Serving Spoons is delivered in a gift bag of African fabric hand-sewn by local women. The serving spoons are made to benefit orphans of the Kamba Tribe in Kenya. Just think about how wonderful it will feel giving someone you love a great gift, all while helping children, families, and communities that need it. Your support gives them hope, determination, and love.

The more love we share with the world, the better! To enter this giveaway, comment below as to what you are thankful for this holiday season, and how you will be spending your Thanksgiving (working, eating, shopping, cooking, giving back, helping people, etc.).
