Face Watch1:Face Watch – Changing the world 1:face at a time
At first glance this watch has a minimalist design, both visually and functionally but that’s exactly what we like about it.  The thick silicone band comes in six different colors, each color representing a cause. At the push of a button the watch displays the time in bright white LEDs. When the button is not pressed the display is a full-face square mirror screen that can come in handy for a discrete lipstick touch up. In reality, the mirror face of the watch is a reminder that YOU are change. Pick a color, pick a cause:

White = child hunger
Yellow = water
Pink = breast cancer
Blue = environment
Red = aids
Black = cancer

No more hassle having to pull off your gloves to use your smartphone or fat-finger dialing when it’s cold outside. FreeFingers is an organization that sells handmade cashmere gloves from which 100% of the profits are donated to breast cancer research.  These socially responsible accessories are the perfect way to warm your hands, and your heart!

The socially responsible accessories available through FreeFingers are luxuriously made and fabulously unique.  In fact, no two are alike.  Choose from several colors, styles and patterns of gloves, all cleverly designed with an opening that leaves the fingers uncovered and free.

Give Prints was born out of a photographer’s desire to help fellow photographers publicize their work while helping worthy organizations that are already reaching out to people all over the world. Just as one values the beauty of a print, Give Prints values the beauty of a changed life!
