Gifts that Give Back

Give a gift that makes a difference in this world. It’s the perfect thing for the minimalist or for that special someone who has it all. From keeping families at the border together, to providing meals and glasses for children in need, these gifts are designed to make a big impact.

This coloring book is a collaborative effort of artists from around the world to help children separated from their families at the border exercise their imagination. All proceeds from the coloring book go directly to Families Belong Together.

African Black rhinos are classified as “critically endangered,” and white rhinos are classified as “near threatened.” Do your part to save the species by gifting an adoption (see other species). The WWF funds conservation efforts in more than 100 countries worldwide.

cuddle + kind Doll ~ $55
