One of the most cherished, and sometimes stressful, holiday traditions is gift giving. The perfect present can provide so much joy to an energetic toddler, a cherished aunt, or a beloved friend. How about a complete stranger? It’s possible with gifts that give back! The following companies provide a portion, or all, of their profits to charitable causes, plus a few of them employ some of the very people they help.
