Today’s e-blast featured beautiful notecards from 100Cameras, a NYC nonprofit that gives cameras, food, water, medicine, and clothing to kids in South Sudan, Cuba, and NYC, as well as the Taza Chocolate Oaxaca Sampler. Taza is a Direct Trade certified  company that has direct relationships with cacao bean farmers and pays them at least 500 US dollars per metric ton above the New York Board of Trade price for a sustainable, fair wage.

    This year I’m buying a gift box from a San Francisco-based non-profit: La Cocina. They help low-income, immigrant women start their own local food business and funds from the box go to helping other women entrepreneurs start a food business. I love this group and their gift boxes are delicious!
