Viral Video on YouTube is a great business social networking tool that has inspired many businesses and charities to take advantage of.

A cute, animated short viral video on YouTube for the World Vision Gift Catalog 2008 shows how you can honor someone special in your life by giving a life changing gift in their name to a child or family in need. As the world economy was tanking in 2008, the World Vision Gift Catalog made people’s holiday gift giving dollars go farther by improving the lives of children through affordable World Vision gifts.

For each World Vision gift, the giver can make the purchase in the name of a friend, family member or business associate, and World vision then sends special cards to those individuals describing the gifts and their impact. The following year, the gift itself or intervention reaches the child or family in need. World Vision launched their first gift catalog in 1996, and since then it has grown more popular each year. At $75, a goat is World Vision’s number one seller, but there are more affordable choices under $35 as well.
