The time around Christmas is known to be the season of giving. Although I believe that all seasons should be seasons of giving (really), I understand that the culture of consumerism that surrounds winter holidays will be practically impossible to root out all at once. People still buy and give gifts (I am guilty of that as well..). However, what if we could invest money to causes that go beyond just profiting a company? What if I could buy goods, and know that the money invested will go directly to individuals and communities that created them? These thoughts inspired me to create a list of online shops that not only offer amazing hand-made products, but encourage and empower talented artisans, contribute to alleviate poverty and hunger, and build stronger communities by making a long lasting and sustainable change.
So folks, if you are starting to look for goods to share with your loved ones, or would simply like to contribute to a good cause, consider exploring these wonderful companies.
