I just became aware of a reporter that's looking for sources on gifts that give back along the vein of Ten Thousand Villages. If you can help her out, by all means contact her at the email below, but take note of her June 24 deadline.
All the best,

Summary: Gifts that "Give Back"
Name: Lauren Parker
Media Outlet/Publication: Accessories magazine
Specific Geographic Region? No
Deadline: 11:00 AM EASTERN - June 24
"I'm writing a holiday gift guide article on 'gifts that give back' in the accessories industry. Not just items that donate $$ to a cause after the fact, but rather companies that help set up womenaround the world to develop sustainable businesses (i.e.GlobalGirlfriend.com or TenThousandVillages.com), then sell the handmade items online or wholesale. If you represent any such organizations, please let me know!Thx! Lauren Parker"
