Fair trade businesses, such as these, partner with farmers and artisans in developing countries who are socially and economically marginalized in finding markets and customers for their goods.
FARM ANIMALS FOR FAMILIES IN NEED
Heifer’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and to care for the earth. Heifer's strategy is to give families a source of food rather than short-term relief and then ask them to “pass on the gift.” Visit their special Global Holiday Faire Living Gift Market to “buy” a gift of farm animals for a family in need.
TREES ARE A GIFT FOR THE AGES
Starting at $2 each, you can give Gift Trees to your family, friends, customers, guests or employees. By giving them, you are showing your appreciation AND making a contribution to the world for generations to come. Plus, there are great shopping opportunities as well.
Loma Vista Farm and Garden Center is an outdoor Vallejo classroom that provides hands-on educational activities involving plants and animals for children of all ages and abilities. Donations support the Farm with funding, planning and development, and management.
Milestones is dedicated to providing comprehensive quality services for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Unfortunately, you can't shop for their wonderful ceramics, but you can still support this great organization!
