Quick and Easy: A Valentine’s Gift that Gives Back

Give a Valentine’s Day gift that benefits children in Kenya.

 

Acacia Creations is a fair trade company based in Nairobi, Kenya, that has been creating and selling handmade merchandise out of recycled materials since 2007. Their products range from jewelry made out of recycled glass and magazines to tableware made from recycled paper and olive wood.

Acacia has created two special lines of jewelry, the Healing Hearts collection and Barefoot Trade Bracelets, that benefit the children of Kenya. When a piece of Healing Hearts jewelry is purchased, $.50 is donated to Gertrude’s Children’s Hospital in Nairobi, which provides pediatric medical care regardless of income. The purchase of Barefoot Trade Bracelets helps to provide shoes, school supplies and tuition for Kenyan children who would otherwise be unable to attend school.
