Love, Joy, Peace
2020 Christmas Catalogue
This Christmas, you’ll notice this catalogue is different than our normal gift catalogue.
In recognition of the substantial life changes many of us have experienced this year, we have 2 ways for you to buy gifts for people you love while helping kids you’ve never met.
The Classic Catalogue.
Buy gifts directly for displaced families. We’ll send your gift to them and a card about the gift to you.
The Merch Catalogue.
Buy new and gorgeous physical gifts. HQ research shows that it’s highly likely that you will find a little something for yourself also.
No matter how you shop, you are participating in redemptive consumerism: purchases that make the world a better place for kids displaced by conflict and oppression.
Love: The Classic Catalogue
Malnourished infants consistently lag in development. Our nutrient- rich infant nutrition packs give them what they need to thrive when suffering from Severe Acute Malnutrition, as there simply isn’t enough food to go around. This gift provides food for one month.
Healthcare workers are trained by our team of doctors and Partners’- trained local health leaders. They are then sent to communities that otherwise do not have access to healthcare. This gift covers food, living expenses, and training for one month.
Two babies have died in the 3 years that Poung Noom, a Community Health Worker, has been there, which was a marked decrease considering most village women have lost one or more babies in the past.
Your support gives a young child the ability to attend school for a whole year, have a daily meal, school supplies, teaching materials, and covers their teacher’s salary.
Education is essential for refugees who have grown up in camps and from communities in Karen State who otherwise would not have access to education. Cover their accommodation, food, desk, chair, learning materials and teacher salaries for a month with this gift.
There is a school in my village and its highest grade is grade 3. Most children my age do not go to school because they help their family with work. Partners provides me with school supplies, food, transportation, security, and also visits us to encourage students. I hope to continue to study at Asia Pacific International University in Bangkok. I would like to be a teacher. I am committed to serve my people and my community as much as I can.
~ A student in Partners GED Program
Education shouldn’t stop when a girl has her period and life can’t stop when a mother does. The kits, made by migrant women who are paid a fair wage, give girls and women freedom all month long.
Some wounds of war cannot be healed with bandaids or time. Our play-based trauma care program has had remarkable success in beginning the healing process for kids traumatized by ISIS in Iraq. This gift covers one month of the program for a child.
“I have been here for a month. My daddy died. My mommy is not well in her head. I miss my home.”

The Classic Bundle
Can’t Decide Which Gift To Buy? We get it; they are all great. May we suggest buying them all so that this Christmas, parents who cannot afford to get anything for their kids can give them everything they need?

We’ve been doing a lot of listening lately and we have two insightful selections, one for kids and one for adults.

Bravery Mag - A Guide for Dreaming and Doing
This special issue of Bravery is our favorite because it’s all about Olympic swimmer and Syrian refugee Yusra Mardini. This issue teaches about Yusra’s life in a fun, engaging way through illustrated stories, fun DIYs, and educational activities that the whole family can enjoy. Bravery Magazine is a guide for dreaming and doing, and we hope it will inspire your little ones to be their own kind of brave. Bravery is designed with girls and boys ages 5-12 in mind, but really, we think bravery is for everyone.
After The Last Border By Jessica Goudeau
The story of two refugee families from Syria and Thailand (!) and their hope and resilience as they fight to survive and belong in America. We couldn’t love this book more.
To Love Is To Unhurry
The fleeting art of carefully penned words, sent by mail - while you sip your Joven coffee.
Embracing unhurried words.
Postcards with Envelopes
This is the message we want to send to everyone we know ‘round the world. Now you can too. Made with recycled paper. Make this your 2020 Christmas card; we are. 10 cards + 10 envelopes.
Not only was this Colombian coffee produced by young growers, it was also selected by the world’s youngest Q grader, Frankie Volkema. In the cup, it tastes of rich milk chocolate, sweet citrus, and spring flowers. Even better, it specifically supports and celebrates the next generation of farmers in Colombia.
To Love Is To Protect
Protecting your loved ones and the planet.
Win - Win.
Migrant women in our sewing program designed and have sewn these masks made from material hand woven by Karen women. To Love Love Love is to wear a mask.
Baggu’s best selling reusable bag goes everywhere and hauls (practically) anything. We take ours to the farmers market around the corner from HQ. Holds 2–3 plastic grocery bags worth of stuff. Folds into a flat 5” × 5” pouch. Boom.
Natural Hand Sanitizer
Only in 2020 would giving someone hand sanitizer be considered an act of love. Bloom’s moisturizing hand sanitizer gel was created by a former Partners intern, meets the CDC recommendations, and uses healthier ingredients that will leave your hands soft and most importantly, bacteria-free. 2 oz.
