Gifts For Globetrotters That Keep On Giving

If you looking for special gifts this year that “give back,” take a look at some of the suggestions Carol Pucci, Seattle Times Newspaper staff columnist makes in her latest column.

“Giving back: Holiday gift ideas for travelers”

Here’s a sneak preview of a few:

• Help someone interested in world travel connect with a sweet-potato seller in Tanzania or a butcher in Nicaragua through Kiva.org. This is the San Francisco nonprofit that uses the Internet to link small lenders with entrepreneurs in 187 countries, including the United States.

•  Gifts made by women in Nepal are for sale at Global Daughter (www.globaldaughter.com), an online fair-trade boutique started by Seattleites Erin Miller and Erika Mosebach.

•  Eugene, Ore.-based Friendship with Cambodia plans an 11-day trip in January that will weave sightseeing at the Angkor Wat temples with humanitarian work such as taking children from families with AIDS on a field trip. Details at www.friendshipwithcambodia.org.

And one that I track via a wonderful newsletter is Global Girlfriend.  Any other ideas and suggestions?
