With the Holiday season fast approaching Christmas shopping is a high priority for many of us. I love to buy and give gifts, and make a special effort to find the perfect gift for each family member and my friends. But more importantly I like the gifts I buy to matter, and “shop with a cause.” With so many amazing social companies out there these days, what better way is there to shop this Christmas season? Consider shopping for your gifts at these amazing companies and let your purchase give back this year.
Their handcrafted leather sandals in addition to their beautiful bags and accessories help generate an income for women in Uganda. Through every one of your purchases and their income these women are empowered to pursue a university level education helping to end the cycle of poverty. Feel good about the gifts you are buying this year and be apart of making a change!
