Giving and Giving

Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could give to a charity and buy a loved one a special gift at the same time?

So many charities need our help this year. Our current economic state is undoubtedly inhibiting their ability to raise money. This year, I encourage everyone to explore buying just one gift that is associated with a charity.  There are so many fabulous finds out there that are perfect gifts, while still supporting charities in need.

1. Alex Woo: Net proceeds of the tree of life necklace benefit the Right Action for Women charity founded by Christina Applegate
2. Macys: Heart for Haiti was developed to allow Haitians to produce and sell homemade crafts through
3.  Tom's Shoes: For every pair purchased, Tom's donates a pair to a child in need with the One for One program.
4.  Project Red: This organization partners up with some of the most well known companies including apple, gap, etc. to create (RED) products. These companies then contribute up to 50% of their profits back to the Global Fund, supporting HIV and AIDS programs in Africa.


  1. great gift ideas -i love the idea of gifting someone with something that would also do something helpful for someone in need!

  2. that fish tray is awesome! and goes to a great cause. lovely. :)
