This holiday, I want to expand the gift of joy and good will beyond my family and friends to the greater world. One of the ways to do this is to choose gifts that make the world a better place. Below are three of my favorite companies and organizations that make “gifts of good will”.
Socially conscious jewelry and goods company 31 bits gives displaced women in Uganda an opportunity to combat poverty through creativity and design. Use the code PURE20 at checkout at 31bits.com for 20% off their amazing creations through December 22.
Nature Conservancy aims to protect the lands and waters on which all life depends. The organization’s site allows you to send specific conservation gifts, such as “protecting an acre of land”, “river clean up” or “orangutan family forest”, to friends and family.
Midwife Pilgrim strives to ensure that communities in crisis and disaster have access to skilled, compassionate women’s health care. Donate to provide such necessities as training local health workers, sponsoring a midwife to travel to a disaster zone and stay for months, and fully stocking a mobile field clinic.
Be a blessing to many this holiday season!
