"Most Needed Gifts" list creates buzz with last-minute shoppers

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - With just a few shopping days left before Christmas, World Vision is urging Canadians to make a difference with their last-minute gifts , to give one that is most needed by families overseas.

"Last-minute shopping is certainly stressful, but Canadians can shop easily from home for thoughtful gifts that meet urgent needs," says Caroline Riseboro, vice-president, World Vision Canada. "Our Most Needed Gifts list includes presents that provide economic security for a family, a safer delivery for a baby and protection from harm for children."

Canadians can help people by giving a gift from World Vision Gifts. The development agency has announced its "Most Needed Gifts" for 2012, and while animals like sheep and goats remain ever-popular, some not-so-cuddly items have made this year's list. 

Most Needed Gifts:

  1. Beehive ($100) Beekeeping kit ($60)
  2. Clean Water for One Family ($100)
  3. Emergency Water and Sanitation for One Family ($100)
  4. Help for a Sexually Exploited Child ($75)
  5. Latrine for a Community ($125)
  6. Pre/Post-natal Care for a Mother and Child ($100)
  7. Help for Women and Girls in Crisis ($100)

A beehive is a gift that helps parents earn money to pay for healthcare and school fees. It produces up to 50 kilos of honey a year which, along with beeswax, can be sold in local markets.

Ideal for last-minute shoppers, these gifts can be easily purchased online at For each gift, you can send or instantly print an e-card that details how the gift is changing a life.

Join the conversation online with the twitter hashtag #meaningfulgifts.
