Ethical Holiday Gift Giving

During the Holiday Season, we often get mixed up in the hustle and bustle and crowds at the mall.  Our children's Christmas lists are longer than a roll of paper towels and we, too, may have our eyes on the latest techno gadgets.  However, throughout the year, families are in need all over the world.  As a birth doula, children and expectant mothers are, of course, especially on my mind this time of year.  So, I thought I would share a few gift giving ideas with you that are selfless and bring a world of help to families in need.  If you'd like to help women and children affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty and give the gift of life this Holiday Season, please visit the following links:
