Gifts That Give Back

This handcrafted tote not only supports the artisans who make it via job opportunities and a steady income, but for every bag sold, FEED provides meals to two children in Kenya for one year.

Purchase a pair of these gorgeous Cambiami sandals and a whopping 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Baby2Baby, a non-profit that provides low-income families with essentials for children such as clothing, diapers and strollers—serving more than 125,000 kids this year.

Warby Parker sunglasses do more than simply provide shade and make you look cool. In a partnership with the non-profit VisionSpring, every pair sold prompts a donated pair in a developing country along with wellness services such as basic eye exams.

All proceeds from the sale of this tote bag will be donated directly to the J.Jill Compassion Fund, which supports community-based organizations that help women in need with education opportunities, job skills and affordable housing.

Same Sky jewelry reinvests 100% of proceeds into training programs and opportunities for Rwandan artisans in an effort to free women from extreme poverty. Buying this bracelet will provide an artisan with food for two weeks and will also benefit the UN Women For Peace Association.

For every gift box sold, Give Wine will donate five dollars toward providing clean and safe drinking water around the world.

A portion of the proceeds from every Humble Hilo purchase goes to one of the following humanitarian projects of your choice: nutrition, microfinance or literacy. With the purchase of one pair of adorable baby shoes, you can provide a child in need with two meals a day for a week, give a microcredit loan to a woman trying to start her own business, or finance a literacy class for a person in need for three weeks.

Each MiiR water bottle sold provides one person in need with clean water for an entire year. Nonprofit partners build responsible and sustainable water projects around the globe.

Alex and Ani contribute 20% of the purchase price of each bracelet to the organization (RED) in an effort to fight AIDS. Keepsake jewelry that backs an important cause? Sign us up!
