TearFund Geschenk

People, and even children, work without fair compensation so that we may celebrate cheap Merry Christmas (see an impressive documentary on child work in chocolate production or read this authentic report on cheap t-shirts by H&M). Therefore this year I don’t want to participate in the ‘consumania’ but be a Christmas Revolutionary! Here are several creative ways to give sense-making Christmas presents:

Giving aid
Besondere Geschenke von TearFund Schweiz
Hilfe schenken von HEKS
Kiva - Loans that change lives (remembered through Marcel Widmer)

Fairtrade presents
Geschenk-Sets von teartrade.ch
Claro Fairtrade Geschenke
Max Havelaar zertifizierte Geschenke
Geschenke auf faircustomer.ch
rrrevolve - der nachhaltige Concept Store (hint from Tania Woodhatch)
