If I have time, I might compile a Christmas gift idea list. For now, here is one item I discovered while browsing Etsy this morning - the Dovetail Pump Project mug. Not only does the mug feature beautiful art, but as the description says:
"Dovetail is pleased to present The Pump Project: a limited edition of mugs promoting clean water for communities in need. This edition features 125 of our unique 4-sided mugs, including original drawings of water pumps screen-printed onto the surface.
When you purchase one of these mugs, 50% of the sale goes to purchase a water pump sponsored by Lifewater International.
If you have been waiting for the right opportunity to purchase a Dovetail mug, this is the one to get, as your purchase will have a direct impact on people without safe water!"
So, think of folks you know similar to me - a bit hot tea/mug crazy, hoping to see clean water worldwide, and who adore Etsy because it supports talented independent artists, working with their hands to craft beautiful things.
