The holidays are often a season for giving, not just to friends and family but also to people in need. Whether you give a donation to a nonprofit in a friend's name or pick up a trinket crafted by artisans working in developing economies, there are no shortages of options for the shopper in search of a present that has a social impact. We ask this year that you also give a gift that supports a charity as well.

This African Soapstone Box is a great gift. This ornate hand-carved soapstone box is etched and designed by local artisans in Kenya. Using this sustainable resource these artisans are lifting themselves and their families out of poverty.
