Give Good


What if all your holidays gifts gave back and helped feed hungry people? My favorite kinds of gifts are the ones who keep on giving. The FEED project has many cool options that are made in America and crafted with love and pride.  By giving a beautifully crafted bracelet for your best friend’s birthday from, that gift will help feed the hungry. I love their FEEDbags, which are a handy way to ditch the plastic and the paper, too.


Your Gifts to the World

May I be protector for those without one,
A guide for all travelers on the way;
May I be a bridge, a boat and a ship
For all who wish to cross (the water).

May I be an island for those who seek one
And a lamp for those desiring light,
May I be a bed for all who wish to rest
And a slave for all who want a slave.

May I be a wishing jewel, a magic vase,
Powerful mantras and great medicine,
May I become a wish‐fulfilling tree
And a cow of plenty for the world.

And the great elements such as earth,
May I always support the life
Of all the boundless creatures.

And until they pass away from pain
May I also be the source of life
For all the realms of varied beings
That reach unto the ends of space.

Shantideva, India 760 AD
