2011 has been a hard year. Global Revolution! Natural disasters! Bankruptcy! What's next? We're not hedging bets for 2012 just yet, but in case things don't turn out the way you'd expected, we've got you covered. Core77's Ultimate Gift Guide has everything you need to get through these hard times and survive through the... end times?
Today's pick is from Jennifer Leonard: Jennifer Leonard is an interdisciplinary Design Leader at IDEO, and the co-author of Massive Change (with Bruce Mau), a book about the future of global design.
In these hard times, there's not much that's more important than getting a fair day's pay. By donating $75, you enable people looking for work to earn money by financing community rebuilding after disasters like earthquakes. Peruse Oxfam's other charitable giving programs—$50 buys a goat or a sheep for a farmer in need, $100 helps start a small business, $150 trains a midwife, $175 digs a well for a community. This is truly a gift that keeps on giving.
