Curt Rosengren on Making a Difference
Feeling fed up with consumption and consumerism? How about an alternative gift from Alternative Gifts International?
OK, so I'm a little late with this one. But for all you last minute shoppers, this might be just the ticket.
You could, for example, give the gift of fighting hunger. Something like...
1. Two Sacks of Groceries / USA
2. Food and Formula for HIV Families / South Africa, Nigeria
Or maybe contributing to individual economic development is more your style. They've got just the gifts for you, like...
9. A Forward Step for Working Women / USA
10. Micro-loans for Poverty Reduction / Haiti, Ukraine
11. Bikes for Healthcare Workers / Tanzania, Senegal, Korea
Of course, kids around the world tug at our heartstrings. They've got you covered there too. For example...
21. New Life for Child Soldiers / Colombia
22. Children with Cancer / Cuba
23. Orphans and Caregivers / Uganda
Even if you have all your presents covered this holiday season, it's worth bookmarking for future use.
Happy Sustainable Worldchanging Holidays! :-)
