CHARITY POT
In addition to being deliciously decadent for the
face and body, Lush Cosmetics are known for
being eco-friendly, organic, and ethically and
socially conscious. No preservatives, no animal
testing (or buying ingredients from companies
that do), and campaigns like Save our Seals and
Ban the Shark Fin Trade are just a typical day at
Lush.
But one of the company's owners wanted
to have a product solely for charitable giving,
and so they bottled one of Lush's first lotions
— made with skin-softening, fairly traded
cocoa butter and geranium essential oil — in
an unassuming black pot and called it Charity
Pot ($21.95), exuding a scent like a pot of rich
and creamy chocolate. Every penny, excluding
tax, goes to grassroots charities around the
world, including Goodie Two Shoes Foundation
(providing disadvantaged children with new
shoes and socks), NOLA Green Roots (teaching
New Orleans residents how to grow fruits and
vegetables at a low cost) and the International
Fund for Animal Welfare. Area Lush stores;

AUTISM SPEAKS
Autism affects one in 110 children,
and we can help find the missing
pieces of the autism puzzle by gifting
this necklace (or hundreds of other
products). Designed by Judith Ripka
for Autism Speaks, the country's
largest autism science and advocacy
organization, this sterling-silver
pendant in the shape of the Autism
Speaks puzzle piece hangs from a
blue silk cord and is dotted with a
sapphire ($229). Store.autismspealcs.

CHANGING THE PRESENT
Choose from more than 1,000 donation gifts, ranging in price from $2 to $5,000 that
will help make the world a better place.
Changing the Present lets visitors browse
specific organizations — and informs them
how their donations will be used. Among
the options: at-risk children receive 10 warm
blankets from the United States Fund for
UNICEF ($40), give two new books to a
child in need from First Book ($5), or fund
a sports jersey for a disabled athlete from
United Spinal Association ($30). You can
then create a personalized greeting card
to announce a donation made in a friend's
name. Changingthepresent.org.
