Gifts That Give

318032_fpx.jpg

I love the holidays. There's something about them that makes me happy, even when I'm cut off in traffic or standing in really long lines at the mall. It's also the one time of year that I try to slow down long enough to appreciate how lucky I am and remember that there are many people who are not so fortunate. If, like me, you'd like to help them, consider giving one of these gifts that give back. Fair Winds Trading and the Pekerti Foundation are offering a collection of handmade Christmas ornaments, available exclusively at Macys, make by artisans in Bali and Indonesia. Many of these artisans are still trying to recover from the effect of the Tsunami in 2004. Prices range from $20 to $34.

For more suggestions on how you can give back to your community, watch our video.
