Buy nice things, help someone else

After thinking more about #7 two posts ago, I got inspired this week to feature organizations that are trying to make a difference. Aid to Artisans helps artists in developing countries, especially women and those in rural areas, become self-sustaining. "Because ATA's goal is to link the artisans to markets, we provide assistance in all stages of that process, including product development and design, business development, market entry, and working with clients." Visit their site to learn more about their new eBay PROJECT GOOD initiative, or to shop! Some of my favorite things:
