It's that time of year! Christmahanukwanzakah is upon us and that means GIFTS. So, in true socially-mission-driven-startup fashion, we've assembled a little list to help you pick out the good stuff.
We're all about that Base. Each cuff from The Base Project is handmade by local artisans in Namibia and sales directly support children's education. We're pretty sure gifting one ofthese beauties is the best way to thank your mom (or comparable mother-figure) for the invaluable education she's given you (p__ro-tip: use code THINXLOVESBASE for 20% off).
Time to blast some Sarah Barielles. Celebrate your fearless bestie this holiday season by stuffing her stocking with a bad-ass necklacefrom The Brave Collection. This empowering accessory line is made by female Cambodian artisans, providing them with economic opportunity, and helping the fight against human trafficking.
You can give an umbrella to pretty much anyone, right? And they'll actually use it. 75% of Jonas Umbrella profits go to funding clean water wells at schools in Uganda. With safe water near schools, women who are typically responsible for water collection have the time to pursue education, which improves their quality of life and furthers gender equality.
We take our hats off to this inspiring brand. Then we put them back on to stay cozy. Give grandma the chance to judge someone else's needle work. Krochet Kids has partnered with women in both Uganda and Peru to create a line of colorful and ethically-rooted hats and accessories. With this gift, you're sure to warm her head, and her heart.
Surprise! It's us. Needless to say, we're pretty sure that the Holiday Set is a great gift for just about any special woman in your life. And, for those of you who don't know: For every pair sold, THINX funds a pack of washable, reusable pads for girls in Uganda so they can stay in school during their time of the month.
Our CEO's boyfriend started a dope company, y'all. For something really personal and directly from the heart, consider Tribute - whose tagline is "The Most Meaningful Gift On Earth." Can't beat that, right? For every reward purchased on their newly-launched Kickstarter, Tribute will donate a video montage to a military family or someone battling a medical hardship.
