The average US family spends about $800 per year on Christmas yet most of us don’t even remember what we got last year. Much of it is exchanged, collecting dust, or forgotten in our mass of STUFF.
Instead of a gift that will be forgotten…Why not give a gift that MEANS something?
There are several amazing organizations that allow you to purchase beautiful handmade items and your dollars directly support freeing slaves, or ending poverty!
Some of my favorite are:
Trade as One
One of my friends bought the necklace from Amazima ministries and let me tell you it is even cuter in person!
And World Vision.
The gift of changing lives, hope to the poor, and freedom for the oppressed is much more exciting than fruit cake don’t you think?
