These beautiful baskets from Rwanda make wonderful accents for your home, and we’re delighted to showcase them as well as support women business owners who are empowering themselves through commerce. Betty Habimana, whose shop in Rwanda makes the baskets, is a success story, having worked with the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women (IEWW) and participated in their Peace through Business initiative, a training program designed to provide long-term business education to women entrepreneurs in Afghanistan and Rwanda. I find the program so inspiring, I’ve arranged to mentor one of the women in our New York office this summer. -JG

There are so many ways to give back every day, from volunteering your time or money to a charitable organization to simply lending an ear to a friend in need. Or: by shopping!

  • A cool color palette and intriguing design give the Grace Fruit Bowl and ethereal appeal. Gently curving out from the center, the flowing lines celebrate the joyful motion of a dancer’s arms held gracefully aloft.

I love the colors and textures that the country incorporates, and how bold they are in textile choices. What's nice about this piece is that it is a set of 5 individual necklaces. So add on the layers for the ultimate overstated look with a downplayed tee, or do just the opposite and wear each one individually with 5 of your favorite outfits. Formality, meet Function. Set of 5 necklaces. Fabric-covered links at 1 necklace, fabric-covered beads at 1 necklace, and assorted beads at 3 necklaces. 32", 38", 54", 66", and 70" long. * Handcrafted in Rwanda.

As in "Guns, Germs, and Steel," Diamond weaves an all-encompassing global thesis through a series of fascinating historical-cultural narratives. Moving from the Polynesian cultures on Easter Island to the flourishing American civilizations of the Anasazi and the Maya and finally to the doomed Viking colony on Greenland, Diamond traces the fundamental pattern of catastrophe. Environmental damage, climate change, rapid population growth, and unwise political choices were all factors in the demise of these societies, but other societies found solutions and persisted. Similar problems face us today and have already brought disaster to Rwanda and Haiti, even as China and Australia are trying to cope in innovative ways. Despite our own societys apparently inexhaustible wealth and unrivaled political power, ominous warning signs have begun to emerge even in ecologically robust areas like Montana. Brilliant, illuminating, and immensely absorbing, "Collapse" is destined to take its place as one of the essential books of our time, raising the urgent question: How can our world best avoid committing ecological suicide?

World AIDS Day was yesterday, and Aldo is making its mark: the brand has teamed up with YouthAids to create this bracelet, and 100% of the proceeds go to the charity. The artwork comes from children living in youth centers in Rwanda who were asked to draw their idea of what "Love for Life" means to them. Adorable and charitable...what more could we need?
