The year is turning...If you celebrate Christmas, New year, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Bodhi Day, or Eid!'s the time for remembering that we are all in this together folks..
Some ideas for making your gift giving more ethical this year..
Oxfam Unwrapped
You can plant 50 trees for 7KD, feed a family for a month for 12KD, feed 100 schoolchildren dinner for 3KD! and so much more..the site is worth a visit.
Shop at Ten thousand Villages, Natural Collection or Global Exchange
Give other gifts that don't need wrapping:
Sponsor a child in someone's name: Here, here or here..
Preserve part of the rainforest for someone: here and here
Help our fellow travellers on this planet here and here..
Clear a minefield, Give the gift of clean water, get essential medicines to people in need, or get yourself over to Artizana at Zahra center, or to KACCH or Bayt Abdullah or the Red Crescent...
