Gifts that Keep Giving: Accessories

It’s hard to figure out where to begin, because there are just so many different organizations out there providing opportunities for people to buy amazing and unique accessories, and in the process help support marginalized women suffering from various social injustices. Amani Juu, Sari Bari, Azizi Life and Fashion, Love Africa are just a couple places where you can go to buy accessories this Christmas. Be sure to check out our “Organizations” page for other ideas.

Gifts that Keep Giving: Coffee

Who wouldn’t say no to a bag or two or even a year’s supply of coffee? Check out your local Starbucks or Coffee Bean for some limited edition fair-trade coffee bags. If you’re feeling more adventurous/generous however, check out Kopur Coffee’s website and give a special someone a 4-12 month coffee subscription. By doing so, they’ll get a variety of exotic coffees from Papua New Guinea, Honduras, Mexico and Ethiopia, and you’ll help provide a small-time coffee grower and his family with sustainable income.

Gifts that Keep Giving: Sleepwear

Girls always love a new pair of soft warm pajama bottoms, so why not pick up a fun, new pair from the International Princess Project’s Fall and Winter Punjammies collection for someone special this holiday season? Punjammies are stylish sleepwear pants, handmade by women in India “who have been rescued, released or [who have] escaped from a life of forced prostitution.”* The women who make them are part of an aftercare program run by the International Princess Project (IPP). By purchasing a pair of pujammies through the IPP, you will be helping provide formally trafficked women with “medical care, emotional safety, education and the tools [they need] to create a new way of life.” Click here to visit the online store.

Gifts That Keep Giving: Trees Please

GiftofHopeIn December, Plant With Purpose is running a Christmas Trees Please campaign to reach 9 million trees planted internationally

“Deforestation and poverty are intimately linked together. As trees are cut down, surrounding farms becomes less productive. Water sources dry up, and erosion carries away the nutrient-rich topsoil. Planting trees fights poverty by restoring soil and water sources, bringing productivity back to the land. Fruit trees protect against erosion and provide a source of food at the same time. Nitrogen-fixing trees add vital nutrients back into the ground while anchoring and buffering topsoil. The results are increased food production and better nutrition for hungry children. Larger crop yields also lead to greater family income, which means money for children’s school fees and renewed hope for tomorrow.”

Gifts that Keep Giving: Music

Just kidding, we decided to start with our first gift suggestions a day early.

So, do you have a friend or family member who is really into music? A number of artists have chosen to partner with the International Justice Mission (IJM) this Christmas, by coming together to compile an album of various classic Christmas songs. 100% of all proceeds gained from this album, will be given to help rescue victims of human trafficking. Check out the video below to find out more about this album or here to purchase it.

Not quite what you were looking for? Try looking here at the “We are the World: 25 for Haiti” official website or here for a song by Jenny & Tyler (all proceeds from this song will go to fight human trafficking) for other some other ideas.
