Alternative Giving: UNICEF

If you're looking for a place to find gifts that aren't just your run-of-the mill store-bought items, and that make an impact on the world, you can't go wrong with UNICEF. In their online catalog, you can find gorgeous artisan-inspired tea-lights, jewelry, journals, and cool educational games and puzzles for kids. The proceeds support UNICEF's efforts to advocate for children all over the world. Happy shopping!

UNICEF believes that every child deserves a childhood, a time of hope and opportunity, a time to learn and grow and play. For 60 years, UNICEF has been the world’s leading advocate for children – working for child survival and development in more than 150 countries. UNICEF has brought vital medicine, clean water, education, nutritious food and emergency relief to children around the world, saving millions of young lives.

Thanks Josie. This is a great suggestion. It has at least inspired me to buy from local artisans here in Budapest rather than dropping dollars (forints really) into corporate nastiness this year.

Love your blog. It's like what a blog should be =)

Local artisans is a *terrific* idea...I'll include it on my "alternative giving" section this week!
