Holidays, like all rituals, serve to remind us of values that we cherish, stories we love to hear and tell, and traditions we cherish and invent. This Holiday Box of Light connects thoughtful givers and appreciative recipients with gifts that create and sustain social impact. At Giving Beyond the Box, we want to introduce you to stories about people and organizations that are doing great things in the world. In this small box, you will find a world of hope. What could be a better gift at this lovely time of year?
These gifts represent values that resonate with the December holidays—preserving the environment, reducing human slavery and trafficking, welcoming travelers in need of a home, caring for creatures, providing light to those who have none, providing access to clean water, paying fair wages for hard work, feeding hungry children, reintegrating members of the human community and more.
For our inaugural Holiday Box of Light, we are producing just one hundred boxes — all carefully curated and designed. Our gifts come from organizations that use principled methods to create their products. In this box are gifts that make the lives of people better, safer and more prosperous and that protect the planet and the animals we share our planet with.
