Fair Trade Gifts That Make a Difference

Our passion is to provide sustainable income to artisans in developing countries and connect people around the world with stories of positive change through Fair Trade practices.

We believe that by providing a more stable family environment and a better education, the children will be more involved in their family planning and community ethics and government.

Helping others by giving them a hand up - not a hand out. Honoring their culture and respecting their desire to work and produce high quality jewelry, scarves, purses, and home decor items.

Each of our products is provided with an attached tag that includes an artisan picture, a short story, UPC bar code, and the Fair Trade logo of authenticity. When giving a gift, please consider giving a gift that includes a wonderful story of helping to make the world a better place. We are one world with many beautiful things to share and we bring to you these extraordinary connections with those from less fortunate places.

Gifts With a Cause invites you on a journey to far away exotic places where you can experience a remarkable collection of handcrafts that take your breath away; fascinating and diverse people; ancient and exotic cultures. This is where the real treasures are found.


With over 25 years of global product development and marketing successes volunteering in hospitals and doing pet therapy with abused children and the elderly, I am inspired to use my compassion and skills to really make a difference. During world travels, I have been touched by the beauty of different cultures and gifts they offer. With this experience, I'm putting passion into action and helping people in need through Gifts with a Cause.


Born and raised in New Orleans to experience spicy flavors, exciting aromas, and charming people. My love for people and broad skill set from Engineering to Counseling have enabled me to travel the world and help others along the path. So many wonderful people with great skills creating beautiful gifts to be shared. My dream is to present these exotic gifts to you and then share the proceeds with their community. One world, one heart, loving what I do.


I am passionate about people and fascinated with intercultural relations. There is nothing more important than strong communication. As a multicultural individual with first hand experiences in many different countries- I have a unique ability to connect with people of all cultures and backgrounds. Equipped with interpersonal skills that I gained through many cultural interactions, enhanced by education at exceptional universities, and supported by unique experiences - I make it a priority to contribute significantly to the United Nations Global Goals in everything that I do. Reach out if you want to talk Fair Trade, education advocacy, women empowerment, or travel. Collaboration is key to making things happen, let's help each other.
