gifts that matter to the earth Gift-giving is a basic human trait that helps build community and shares bounty with one another. But there are gifts and there are Gifts.

If you want to share your bounty with people who need a helping hand, consider some of the gift services that provide the essentials of life to people and the planet. Here is a list that we put together from our searches. Please consider them carefully...and consider the impact of a few dollars given as a gift to your loved ones and to your beloved planet.

Practical Presents
United Kingdom Nonprofit that works globally
Founded by Dr E F Schumacher, author of the best selling book 'Small Is Beautiful', Practical Action has, over the past forty years, worked with communities to develop a wide range of innovative and practical solutions to change people's lives for the better. In an increasingly divided and fragile world, Practical Action works together with some of the world's poorest people throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America to help lift themselves out of poverty.

In their "Green Fingers" section, you can give a drip irrigation kit, or a floating garden to make it possible to grow food during Bangladesh's rainy season. Fascinating innovations!

Heifer International

Dallas, TX Nonprofit

Heifer International is a humanitarian assistance organization that works to end world hunger and protect the earth. Through livestock, training and "passing on the gift," Heifer has helped seven million families in more than 125 countries improve their quality of life and move toward greater self-reliance. Heifer helps build strong communities because each project participant agrees to pass on the gift of animal offspring, training, or skills to another family in need.

If you love farm animals, nothing could be more cuddly or more life-supportive! Chicks, geese, goats, knitting baskets and trees to green the ark.
