I Walk For Water
How about a themed combo pack for the kids in your life? I highly recommend this limited-edition children’s book with beautiful illustrations AND top-of-the-line, environmentally- and humanitarian-friendly water bottles.
Why I Like This:
I’m completely proud of this combo gift idea for the kiddos on your list. My friend, Lindsey, has written an incredible children’s book called “I Walk For Water.” The illustrations are beautiful, and the story introduces our kids to their peers in Africa who walk many kilometers every day to find clean water. So first, buy Lindsey’s book. Then, buy a stainless steel, toxin-free, 100% recyclable water bottle from MiiR. MiiR has partnered with charity: water and One Day’s Wages to help build wells in Southeast Asia and Africa. Every water bottle that MiiR sells buys one year of clean water for a child in need. Clean water for all! You can even give them your name and they’ll put your name on the well that you help fund with your purchase, and this winter, they’re starting a program where you can track your purchase and see exactly where your dollars go. Here’s an article about what they’re doing: http://inhabitat.com/miir-water-bottles. Every Christmas, we exchange gifts with friends who have four boys. This year, I bought one copy of Lindsey’s book and four water bottles in different colors. I’m excited for our friends to have awesome new water bottles, and also to see a day in the life of kids their age around the world.
Slave-Free Christmas Challenge:
This Christmas, I’ve challenged myself to shop my entire Christmas list from organizations that are helping people, not hurting people. Today, 27 million men, women, and children live as someone else’s property. Slaves are making the items that I’m buying to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior. Somehow I don’t think He’s blessed by the blood on His birthday presents. For more information on my Slave-Free Christmas project, click here.
