Make a Difference When You Make a Purchase at Shop to Change a Life! (GIVEAWAY)

The holiday season is a time for giving, and what better way to give than to support people who are in need. That is the goal on the website, Shop to Change a Life. Author Samira Rao features Fair Trade Products on her website that are imported from India. In 2009, Matr Boomie, a fair trade wholesaler that Samira supports, was contacted by Sana, the young daughter of an artisan in group, who was dissatisfied with the exploitative treatment of her family and community by local tradesmen. Since their Fair Trade partnership began, their earnings have doubled, they have upgraded to a better workspace, and children are staying in school longer. In fact, Sana became the first girl in her village to attend college!

Samira donates 6% of the net sales of the Fair Trade Products sold on Shop to Change a Life to Chinmaya Vijaya, a girls’ orphanage in Vijayawada, India, and to The Child Evaluation Clinic (for sexual abuse in children) at the McLaren Regional Medical Center in Flint, Michigan.

Check out some of the unique products on her site:


Mommy’s Music Angel Children’s Journal

Does your child like to write? Journals are a wonderful way to record and remember new experiences, good times with friends and family, and wishes and dreams. This charming 30-page journal has an embroidered angel on the cover. The 100% recycled, tree-free cotton paper is made by artisans in India. The entire process is tree-free, non-toxic, and conserves and filters water for re-use in irrigation. It comes gift-wrapped in a recycled Sari Pouch.


Wooden Tank Truck

This unique wooden truck will delight your child (3+) with its rolling wheels and moving parts. The traditional craft of woodcarving plays an important role for many artisan communities in small towns and agricultural villages in north central India. Each artisan uses hand tools to skillfully carve blocks of sustainable Indian Rosewood into fine treasures. Artisans finish and detail each item with natural wax, non-toxic paints and lead-free varnish. Gift wrapped in a recycled Sari Pouch.

Visit Shop to Change a Life and make a purchase to help support these worthy charities. Their beautiful jewelry, handbags and scarves, children’s toys, decorative accessories, and more make treasured gifts, not only for the holidays but all year long!
