This year, buy gifts from companies that support humanitarian, environmental, or philanthropic projects.
You might not know this, but some of our favorite active clothing, shoe, and accessory companies are dedicated to more than just annual profits. From Columbia Sportswear to Timberland, choose holiday gifts from a company that cares about human rights for workers, environmentalism, or philanthropy. It's not quite the same as making a charitable donation in someone's name, but it's pretty darn close.
These water crisis organizations are well worth a click.
