Hooray for Alternative Gifts!





New Community Project is all about giving people good options -

from girls wanting to go to school rather than a sweatshop, to women

looking for skills training to help them reach their potential, to planting

trees and protecting forests to give nature - and us - a chance to thrive.


Same with our network - what are good alternatives when it comes to 

showing appreciation for the people you care about? We have a few ideas!


Pick one or more of the items below, let us know what you want to give to

whom by when, and we'll send them a gift card - or send you a card to give

them - or print your own card from this pdf!
