9 Do-Gooder Goodies

Stone + Cloth backpacks

Stone + Cloth

Well, it’s official – the holidays are right around the corner! With Halloween out of the way, it’s time to make room for Hanukkah (beginning extra early this year on November 27th), American Thanksgiving, and of course, Christmas! The Santa commercials have begun, the mall holiday trees are decorated (truth!) and it will only be a matter of time before the cheery seasonal music begins to play.

This year as I compile my gift list, I love the idea of goodies that give back. Like these adorable minimalist backpacks by Stone + Cloth where each purchase goes toward scholarships for children in Tanzania; or these vibrant paper beads created by women in the Dominican Republic and put together in Canada by Esperanza Fair Tradethese stylish frames by online phenomenon, Warby Parker; or the stunning woven garments by Lemlem, an organization founded by Supermodel, Liya Kebede.
