Give the Gift of True Love this Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is coming up, the time for celebrating love. As we do so, what better way to show love than to do so toward those who desperately need it. Instead of the boring, traditional Valentine’s ideas, how about one of these unique gift ideas that will show your special someone that you care, not only about him or her but also about the world at large.

Flowers
Were you going to send flowers to your sweetheart this year? These bouquets from Organic Bouquet are not only eco-friendly, but they come with a complimentary vase. Plus, 10% of any purchase benefits school girls in Mozambique.

Jewelry
Nightlight Jewelry is handcrafted in urban Bangkok by women who have escaped the sex trade industry. Jewelry sales offer these women a sustainable income and the freedom to have a livelihood of joy and dignity.

Gift Cards
Send your Valentine a GlobalGiving gift card. Send them online or through the mail, and choose our “Give Love” card design for a special touch. Show your Valentines how much you care by giving them a chance to make a difference.

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
