If baking is in your blood, or you know a friend or family member who loves making flavorful things happen in the kitchen, you’ll want to get in on our latest giveaway.
Since it began in 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative; more than 844,000 people helped someone through the Catalog in the last fiscal year alone. Our giveaway item this time is a gorgeous World Vision Prosperity Cinnamon box certain to add spice to your culinary masterpieces or make an attractive gift this holiday season for your favorite habitual baker or home cook. (catalog price $85 USD)
Each beautifully-carved cinnamon bark box contains 3 oz. of Vietnamese cinnamon and bears a common Asian character for prosperity. Vietnam’s renowned sweet cinnamon is a renewable resource collected from the Cassia tree, sold to benefit generations of hard-working families. For more information about World Vision and its mission, please consider checking out its Facebook page and its Twitter at @WorldVisionNews.
Having received a sample of the item for review before offering it as a giveaway prize, I was impressed enough with the container’s construction and ornamentation, as well as the freshness of the cinnamon (which I’ve used over the past few weeks to spice everything from pancakes to pumpkin crème brûlée) to want to share it with you: my loyal followers, my people, my dear brothers and sisters from other mothers and misters (Here’s where we’d bring it in for a warm hug, if you and I were standing within Public-Display-of-Affection-distance. For now, we’ll have to use our imaginations.)
