In keeping with Human Rights Day and Amnesty International, I decided to post their gift catalog address and some pictures of gift items. There are so many good organizations selling gifts and this is just one. But your gift purchase will help prisoners of conscience, many of whom are women, so it’s a good choice, I think.
Here are just a few of the items I liked:
Stuffed giraffe from South Africa – $22 (I believe each one is $22)
Amnesty International 2010 Calendar $13.99 (Or Daily Planner with same cover $12.95)
When you purchase from a non-profit such as AI, the gifts are often made by local craftspeople so you are buying an international gift that helps both the person who made it and the goals of the organization.
