Gifts That Fight Poverty

Alternative Gifts International offers dozens of gifts designed to alleviate human suffering. By buying a colony of bees to produce honey or a pair of rabbits to breed ($55), you can help a family in Haiti, where many are still recovering from Hurricane Sandy and the devastating 2010 earthquake. You can save lives in Burma by buying a backpack full of medical supplies ($25) or help a woman in Tanzania with a wood-saving rocket stove ($31).
