‘Tis the season to shop ’til you drop. And, if you’re anything like us, the last thing you want to do with your precious free time is fight hordes of Black Friday shoppers to find the “perfect” gift for each one of your kid’s seven teachers. No thank you!
It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.Mother Teresa
If you’re determined to teach your kids about the true meaning of the holidays, why not shop AND give back at the same time? Shop SERRV and support artisans and farmers from around the world by creating jobs and fighting poverty one family at a time. A portion of your purchase will also support Travelnitch and our ongoing work inspire young travelers!
Rekindling the Magic of Giving
For many people, gift giving has become an added strain—financially and emotionally—turning what should be an act of love into a chore. It’s time to rekindle some of the magic that makes Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah truly special.
Let your kids shop for their own gifts this year, with help from SERRV. This nonprofit organization has been fighting global poverty since 1949, through the sale of low-cost, high-quality handmade crafts. Every purchase supports fair wages and safe working conditions for rural artisans and farmers around the world. The best part? Kids can read about who they’re helping with each individual purchase. Here are just a few examples:
Your purchase helps handcrafters in Ecuador earn a steady income while preserving Ecuador’s cultural traditions.

Your purchase helps pay a cooperative of small-scale cocoa farmers in Ghana, improving their quality of life.

Your purchase provides employment and a fair wage to disadvantaged artisans around the world, plus it comes in a handmade box from Nepal. Learn more »
Paying It Forward
Make your gift extra special by including the artisan’s story on the gift tag so the recipient can understand just how meaningful your gift is. Maybe they’ll even pay it forward with a purchase of their own!
So—your kids can give a thoughtful gift that supports an incredible cause and doesn’t break the bank, while learning how empowered men & women are changing lives across the globe. How’s that for holiday spirit?
