Gifts with a conscience

Change.org has put together a Holiday Gift Guide featuring a variety of creative and thoughtful gifts that "advance the causes you and those close to you are passionate about."

Here are three of my favorite ideas from the gift guide:

For Human Rights Activists: Artsy designs and compelling causes make Rosa Loves t-shirts great gift ideas. Each design is tied to a specific story and human rights-related need, and the profits go toward meeting that need. Once the goal has been met, the shirt goes out of production, making each design a limited edition.

For the Sustainable Foodie: Sign up for a Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) membership. A CSA entitles members to a regular delivery or pick-up of fresh, seasonal produce from a farm near them – a healthy choice for consumers and for the planet. To find a CSA near you or your loved ones, use LocalHarvest’s online CSA locator.

For LGBT Equality: Your purchases can count toward LGBT equality, not just more airline miles. Over at LoveandPride, you can pick up an Erase the Hate pendant, with a portion of proceeds going to the Matthew Shepard Foundation. And if that’s not enough love, you can pick up an Erase the Hate T-Shirt, too.
