10 gifts that give back

Now that everyone is in a post-Halloween induced candy coma we can start thinking about Christmas.

What? No?

Okay, usually I say, “No Christmas talk until after Thanksgiving.” But here’s the deal: sometimes you need to think ahead.

Like, when you want to give gifts that give back to humanity. Gifts that say more than, “I got this on sale at Target.” No offense to Target.

Gospel for Asia’s new Christmas catalog landed in my mailbox a few weeks back and I have already dog-eared about 5 pages.

So, if you are thinking this year is the year you want your gifts to give back and mean more for humanity…well, this is your year!
