Gifts That Give Back

This Holiday season give a gift that "gives back." Here are my top three picks:

Feed Just One
One Shirt = 30 Meals. Feed Just One funds the food program for Think Humanity's girls hostel in Hoima, Uganda. Every time you buy a shirt, it allows 30 girls to sit down to a nice balanced meal.

Mother Teresa once said, "If you can't feed a hundred people, than feed just one."
Buy a Shirt. Save a Life.
The White Rainbow Project
Mother Teresa also said, "The greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody."

The White Rainbow Project is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to helping the widows of Vrindavan, India aka, "The City of Widows." In India, widows are considered to be unlucky. There are many demoralizing customs associated with widowhood.

Buy the movie on DVD that inspired The White Rainbow Project or beautiful handmade tunics, jewelry and scarves. Proceeds go to helping the widows of India.
For every toothbrush you buy, Smile Squared donates one to a child in need. Everyday products like toothbrushes can have a big impact on the world.  

Environmentally friendly, hand-crafted with a biodegradable bamboo handle and high quality DuPont Tynex bristles. Only $5.95. Great little stocking stuffers!

Buy One. Give One.
What are some of your favorite "give back" programs?

Happy Holidays.
