Few spices enjoy the popularity, intensity and exhileration associated with fresh cinnamon. This year, the 2013 World Vision Gift Catalog www.worldvision.org enables you to help individuals and families in communities around the globe to achieve a better life at the same time you gift a friend or family member with something special.

One of the new gift offerings being showcased this holiday season is “Prosperity Cinnamon” , a gorgeous hand-crafted Cinnamon Box filled with an intoxicating supply of this aromatic fresh spice direct from Vietnam. Did you know that seasoning your food with cinnamon helps bring an increase in money, good luck and overall good fortune? We love it over morning toast, to season baked apples and pie and to add to freshly brewed coffee.  Other hand-crafted gift ideas available through World Vision include a Fair Trade Coffee Set, a beautiful patchwork tote,  silk scarves, Christmas ornaments and  jewelry. You can help eradicate world poverty and do your Christmas shopping, all at the same time!
