Gift that keeps on giving!

I don’t normally celebrate Christmas, but this year my family has decided to join in on the festivities. However, when my mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I had no idea what to ask for. I didn’t just want anything from the mall..I wanted a gift that actually meant something. I want a gift that keeps on giving. So I put in a stipulation that if I get any gift, it has to be a gift that supports a good cause and benefits those in need.

One organization that I particularly fond of is V-Day. V-Day is an organization founded by Eve Ensler, that raises money and awareness to end violence against women around the world. I first heard of V-day in my women’s studies class the other day and when we watched a documentary called “The Vagina Monologues.”   A documentary that that brings awareness about rape and violence against women around the world.  A truly moving film that is raw, moving and at times funny, but most of all enlightening.

In an effort to raise money and awareness, Eve Ensler teamed up with Amanda Keidan Jewelry and put together a line of rings and necklaces to support the cause. This is one gift I would not mind receiving, since it is for such a good cause. My suggestion for everyone is to pick a cause that is close to your heart and celebrate the spirit of Christmas by picking a gift for a loved one that supports people around the world. Truly a gift that keeps on giving.
