The Girl's Guide to Giving Back

Give When You Give. My recommendations for unique and hand crafted gifts for all occassions that donate a portion of their proceeds to reputable non-profits and local artisans.

Wednesday, December 06, 2006

Well, I am a bad charity blogger as I completely missed World AIDS Day on December 1st. I thought about posting that day, and then completely forgot. Decemeber is a whirlwind month with all the Holiday parties, Holiday shopping, New Years planning and mine and my hubbys bdays. I personally find it a bit overwhelming. Anyway, I am sure that I missed some opportunties to share with you products that would have benefited this worthy cause, but alas, I will try to be better. You can always purchase a product from Project Red, Bono's cause to support the AIDs epidemic.

My good friend T (go Bucks!) passed along this interesting site that Daily Candy featured, a New York based non profit that donates 100% of its proceeds to helping inner city youth. They focus on the creative process of making pottery to develop youth creativity and work ethics. The site has a ton of beautiful bowls, vases, mugs, sushi sets and many more great ceramic pieces. I really like these piggy banks. Wouldn't they make a great Holiday gift for a little one?

By the way, don't forget to donate to your favorite charity before the year is over. Remember the tax break! And how great you will feel helping others! We'll be donating to DAWG -The Dog Adoption & Welfare Group and - The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (in honor of my mom). Both of these are local charities here in Santa Barbara. Let me know who you are supporting.
