Gifts That Give Back

These gifts pull double duty. Find something for everyone on your "nice" list, and your hard-earned money goes to a good cause like AIDS research, help for endangered animals, support for the homeless, and much more. This year, bring a little joy into the life of someone you don't know, as you shop for someone you do.

Charity Charm Bracelet


From Altruette. Jewelry company Altruette's motto is "Change the world with a charm!" Each charm purchase means a donation to a charitable cause. For example, an elephant charm means a donation to The African Wildlife Foundation, and an ice skate charm symbolizes support for the Special Olympics. Girls' colorful charms cost $15 (with $1 donated to the cause) and women's silver and gold charms cost about $50 and up (with 50 percent of the net profit benefiting the cause). All Altruette jewelry is made in the USA. Philanthropy is so fashionable!
