Christmas is the time of year when most of us spend the most money during the year. First watch the video about Advent Conspiracy.
This year consider changing a few of the gifts you purchase in order to have your money work for those in need also.
147 Million Orphans: This organizations sells clothing, bags, and jewelry. 50% of everything sold goes to clean water, feeding programs, education programs, and more. My brother-in-law bought me a shirt here last year and it was my FAVORITE gift.
Gobena Coffee: Named after the 70 year old man who took care of their daughter, Gobena sells organic and fair trade coffee. 100% of their profits go to children in Ziway Ethiopia.
Orphaned NO More, 3,000 Bracelets: The name of this comes from how many bracelets it would take to bring their child home. Since this family brought Sophia home the baton has been passed. I can personally attest that these bracelets are beautiful as my sister-in-law gifted me one last year!
One Twenty Seven: Adorable hair bows. 100% of the proceeds to go Lifesong for Orphans. Again helping in Ziway Ethiopia.
TOMS: TOMS one for one campaign gives shoes to children in need. For each pair you buy, one pair is donated.
World Vision: The World Vision catalog provides you with items that you can give to others: animals, clean water, medical care. These gifts can be for US children or Orphans and Widows. Give this gift in honor of someone.
