Thanks for the information! I love to find great gifts are also create positive change. If anyone is looking for a great purse, or tote take a look at www.sishope. They sell fair trade bags, and for every bag purchased they give a menstrual kit to a girl in Uganda.

So many great causes that need our help, especially in these economic times. I don't see anything relating to animals, though. Brandy and Val, Real Dogs with Real Tales, children's board books and toys benefit animal rescues throughout the country and 100% from one of the titles, Brandy and Val's Special Story, is donated to the rescue Brandy and Val were adopted from outside Chicago. http://www.BrandyandVal
