Laboiteny | The Voyager Box
For the foodie who wants to satisfy his or her wanderlust, visionary spice hunter Lior Lev Sercarz of La Boite and renowned French chef Eric Ripert have curated a delectable spice trio, which includes Le Poivre (Espelette and Tellicherry peppers), Riviera Herbs (rosemary, mint, basil) and aromatic Sel D’antibes (grey salt, bergamot).
Endangered Species Art | A.E. London
For A.E. London, art and her passion for the conservation of endangered species are one and the same. Her thirty-year journey has led her to Africa and other wild locations numerous times to witness and capture the faces of nature in her “Portraits of the Wild” series. Working with the Black Rhino Foundation, Ann Van Dyke Cheetah Center, and the Cheetah Foundation, Anne has been able to share her art and raise awareness for animal conservation.
Gifts that Give
Nets for Africa | Insecticide-Treated Mosquito Nets
For that hard to shop for person on your list, considering purchasing a mosquito net in their name to send to Africa. For three years, Ker & Downey employees have worked together to provide insecticide-treated mosquito nets for impoverished communities in Uganda through its Nets for Africa program in an effort to reduce the number of deaths from malaria each year. Each mosquito net covers four people and with Ker & Downey matching each donation net for net, your gift goes twice as far.
Obakki Foundation | Printed Scarf
Clean water is a vital source of life, but many communities in the world don’t have access to this basic need. The Obakki Foundation is combating this issue through drilling water wells and assisting in the development of communities around the fresh source of water, enabling them to not only survive, but thrive. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the sale of the scarf goes directly toward drilling water wells in South Sudan, bringing clean water to the country’s communities.
