Priya Haji, Joan Kenley, and Tex Dworkin

Listen to the Show

Originally, giving a gift meant sharing something special that was reflective of your personal talents. Today, giving something special can mean selecting a gift as an expression of your personal commitments or philosophy. Over the past decade, there has been a surge in companies and products that are better for the environment and more advantageous for those who create the gifts. What giving offers those who give, is expressed by Maya Angelou: “I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.”

In this program you’ll hear about:

  • environmentally responsible gifts and where to get them
  • charitable giving to help those in need
  • the causes of holiday angst
  • websites you need to know about
  • how customers can find air trade products, and
  • what it means to vote with your gift dollars all year round
