Christmas Gifts That Give Back

Christmas is the giving season.  Everyone is gifting to one another and giving to charities to help the poor.  I love that Christmas puts us all in the giving mood.  With all the gift buying, I try to put a little thought into where my money is going.  There’s some great products out there that would make great gifts and your purchase helps those who are less fortunate.  While you’re making your gift giving lists and preparing for Black Friday, check out these items…

Hearts 4 Hearts Girls ~ Right now there are 6 different Hearts 4 Hearts Girls to choose from.  Girls from Belarus, India, Mexico, USA, Laos, and Ethiopia are inspired by real life people.  When you buy a doll, Hearts 4 Hearts Girls donates part of the profit to World Vision to help girls in that country.  Hearts 4 Hearts Girls and accessories are sold at Target, Toys R Us, and Amazon.

—————————————

All For Children Collection at H&M ~ Not that long ago, I was in H&M and discovered a whole line of clothing and toys called All For Children.  25% of the proceeds from the All For Children Autumn 2011 collection will be donated to help children’s rights in Bangladesh.

—————————————

Surge On Smith ~ This folky collection of songs tackles the issue of modern day slavery.  The deep lyrics will leave you wanting to make a change!  Profit from the purchase of this album go toward Love146 and It’s Not My Fault.  Both are organizations that are working to come against sex trafficking.

—————————————

Warby Parker Shades ~ Warby Parker actually carries glasses as well as sunglasses.  For every pair of glasses sold, they donate to someone in need.  Their vintage inspired frames are beyond cool!  $30 from every pair of Griffin Sunglasses goes to Invisible Children.  Be sure to check out the new limited edition SUNO line.  The Thatcher is definitely my favorite!

—————————————

Hello Somebody Watches ~ Seriously, who couldn’t use a watch?  These big, bright colorful watches are so cool.  The purchase of these watches helps kids in Rwanda by educating and feeding them, thus breaking the terrible cycle within their generation.  Hello Somebody also has t-shirts, hoodies, and more available for purchase.
