Christmas Shopping Ideas that Make a Difference

My new friend Amber compiled this list of places you can shop this Christmas (or all year round!) that will have a positive impact on our world:

  • Moju Project -- really cool t-shirts, every shirt you buy feeds an orphan for a month
  • Kingdom Kids Adoption -- buying cultural items from this shop enables African widows to keep and support their children, proceeds also go to support a hospice program for women who are HIV positive
  • Tiny Rock Star -- really cool t-shirts mostly for babies and kids, every shirt you buy feeds an orphan for a month
  • Kingdom Ventures -- various fair trade items, provides income for former prostitutes
  • Hand and Cloth -- blankets made from saris, provides income for former prostitutes
  • Sari Bari -- blankets made from saris, provides income for former prostitutes
  • Trade as One -- various fair trade items, fighting poverty
  • World Crafts Village -- various fair trade items, fighting poverty
  • Blessing Basket -- baskets from Bangladesh, Ghana, Uganda, fighting poverty
  • Made By Survivors -- various items, made by survivors of slavery and persons that are at risk of being trafficked into slavery
  • Free Set Global -- handbags, made by former prostitutes in India
  • Punjammies -- part of the International Princess Project, pajamas made by former slaves in India
  • Cards From Africa -- handmade cards, supports orphaned children in Rwanda
  • Just Love Coffee -- buy coffee, help orphans. Proceeds go to support Kids Care Orphanage or a specific cause. If you'd like to help Amber and her husband bring home two girls (one from China, one from Ethiopia), shop at this link.
