Holiday Gifts for Kids That Give Back to the World
Does your kid want to forego his or her holiday gift this year in exchange for giving charity? We didn’t think so!
That’s why UNICEF Kid Power has come up with a fun list of gifts that will not only delight your kid, but will also give back to the world in many different charitable ways.
So, drum roll please…without further ado:
We’ve found a gift that checks off just about everything we are looking for: Fashionable, comfortable, seasonal, charitable, and affordable.
These great socks from Conscious Step are made from organic cotton under fair trade conditions. Best of all, for every pair of socks sold, one child in need will receive drinking water for 18 months, in conjunction with Water.org.
Is your kid a fan of live music? Does your local kids club have fun concerts or battle of the band jam sessions for the local kids of the community? Things can get pretty loud in there, but not to worry – you can give your kid a pair of top quality and seriously cool-looking ear buds from Discover Vibes. Each pair sold will help fund projects that provide hearing aids for those in need.
Indestructible Soccer Ball
The One World Play Project has an amazing, indestructible soccer ball, which never needs to be pumped up and can play on any surface! We don’t need to tell you, but this is literally every kid’s dream. The best part is for every soccer ball sold, one will be donated to kids in disadvantaged communities worldwide.
(For more active gifts that will get your kid out of the house, we have compiled a list here).
Your kid will definitely have the most unique jewelry in their class with one of these Me to We handmade bracelets. Me to We says that these bracelets change the world, and they’re not wrong: each bracelet is made by a woman in Kenya, and each bracelet sold sends donations to impoverished communities that need clean water and school supplies.
We reckon it’d be pretty cute if the whole family wore matching pajamas this holiday season? BedHead Pajamas has designed a fun and exclusive set of red PJ’s for all the gang. Red.org uses proceeds to fund HIV research in African countries such as Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, and more.
The gifts above are all superb options that all kids would love to receive. For any parents looking for a holiday gift slightly outside the box, then look no further: UNICEF Kid Power has developed fun wearable tech bracelets. Points are earned for getting active while wearing the band. The more points earned the more malnourished kids’ lives are saved with the distribution of therapeutic food packets.
No matter the holiday gift you choose this season, you can be sure that you’re seriously warming up another person’s life as well.
