There’s nothing better than finding the perfect gift that will be loved and cherished by the special people in your life. But wait, there is something better! With ME to WE gifts, not only can you give meaningful gifts to your loved ones, but you can change the lives of families around the world.
WE is a movement that exists for one reason: to make the world a better place. WE believes that you are powerful beyond measure, that anyone can make a difference, that we are defined by our daily efforts and that we are a global community. It’s hard not to support an organization with that kind of purpose, clarity and vision!
Here are some of our favourite ways you can #GiftGood!
Holiday Filigree Rafiki Bracelet, $10
In Swahili, the word for friend is rafiki! This bracelet is an everyday purchase with extraordinary impact. ME to WE works with 1,800 artisans in Kenya and Ecuador creating beautiful gifts that give back to their communities. The Rafiki bracelet is made with glass beads on a stretchy 48″ cord and can be worn your way: as a bracelet, necklace, anklet and more! This gift gives clean water and changes lives by supporting projects like community wells and boreholes.
Gratitude Necklace, $35
This is a daily reminder to be grateful. Each necklace, crafted by female entrepreneurs in Kenya, expresses gratitude in three languages—Swahili, Hindi and Kichwa. These necklaces are 18”-20″ in length and features ethically sourced rose quartz, black jasper, and purple chalcedony symbolizing messages of love, caring, strength and opportunity. This is the gift of education as it supports projects like new schools and classrooms.
Chocolate That Changes Lives, $4.99
Each ME to WE chocolate bar is handcrafted using Ecuador’s prized national cacao bean, Fino de Aroma, and fused with colorful confetti sprinkles. Each delightful 40g bar is made with 42% cacao milk chocolate, is fair trade certified and empowers the cacao farmers who made it to earn a fair wage for their work and ensures children in Ecuador have access to education.
