One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is when I start getting Charity Gift Catalogs. I love how practical and doable they are. Sure there are lots of terrible things in the world I can’t fix, but I can give chickens or seeds. I wanted to share three different catalogs with you over the next three gift giving weeks as well as some of my favorites in each one.
These are the perfect gift for the person who has everything, the compassionate person, and the minimalist (as well as many others).
Here are some of my favorites:
Gift 3-Invest in Hives for Better Lives in Niger, $65 per woman. Beekeeping kits and training to produce honey will be given to a woman
Gift 6-Buy Improved Cookstoves for the Quechua In Ecuador, $25. Provides a cookstove that vents outside instead of the open fires that creates lots of breathing problems, especially for kids.
Gift 11-Provide a Latrine to a Tea Worker in Sri Lanka, $38. Provides latrine and hygiene training.
Gift 39-Stop Sex Trafficking in India $150. Create a rescue center on the border and train gatekeepers to detect potentially trafficked women and girls.
There are 61 different gift ideas including food, water, education, women’s safety, sustainability and emergency management.
Here is an online version of the catalog to search through.
