Gifts That Give Back

Gifts That Give Back!
1.)Wakami work alongside rural communities to produce a range of fashion accessory products that enrich both the lives of those who wear the brand and those who produce it. The Wakami Village Program, assists poverty stricken Guatamalan artisans become self-sustaining and independent. Artisans are enrolled in two-year business training programs to teach them valuable skills designed to empower individuals so they can manage their own business and achieve a sustainable source of income, which in turn helps families and communities.
So far the impact of Wakami has been dynamic. Malnutrition in children decreased by 30 percent within a year, and school attendance increased to 92 percent versus the traditional 50 percent. Wakamis work extends beyond simple charity, Wakami work to end the poverty cycle by implementing long term solutions, assisting individuals and turning them into instruments of change for the entire community.

2). KUTOA (kutoa.com)
In Swahili the word ku-toa means to give.  Thats the very basic yet very powerful concept that KUTOA is based on.  For every KUTOA health bar purchased, KUTOA donates, through a partnernship with the World Food Program, a nutrition pack to a child suffering from malnutrition, providing them with the vitamins, minerals and micronutrients.  The KUTOA bars are 100% natural and are made with only the best natural ingredients including organic oats, fresh fruit and nuts.  They contain no preservatives, additives or artificial ingredients. The bars currently come in three scrumptious flavors: cherry cashew, raisin peanut and blueberry almond.

3). Smiles for the People (smilesforthepeople.com)
Smiles for the Peoples Original Adult Brush is a premium adult toothbrush made from 100% biodegradable bamboo. The brush has an ergonomically curved design that makes it comfortable and beautiful. Heres the best part though: for every toothbrush you buy, Smiles for the People gives the cash equivalent of ONE toothbrush to one of their partner dental charities.  Our donations enable our giving partners to design locally appropriate interventions for their communities unique local needs. Because of the wide range of needs in the oral health field, and because toothbrushes can sometimes cause more harm than good for people in need of care, this strategy is more responsible than donating physical brushes.


4). You and Who (youandwho.com)
You and Who markets original design t-shirts and for every one sold, a matching shirt is donated to someone in need in the city of the artist who designed the shirt through local charity partners. Through this model, You and Who is not only helping those in need, but also the very artists who design the one for one t-shirts, providing exposure for their work (each artist that works with You and Who has their own biography on the website) and paying them $1 from the sale of each of their one for one t-shirt designs that is sold.  All of the one for one t-shirts from You and Who are unique fashion statements, featuring colorful one-of-a-kind prints and designs that are sure to help you stand out from the crowd.  Gifts That Give Back
