CHRIST­MAS shop­ping lag? Why not dip into the cat­a­logues and web­sites of greet­ing cards and gifts from or­gan­i­sa­tions that make a dif­fer­ence. New In­ter­na­tion­al­ist (newint.com.au) has an Eth­i­cal Liv­ing Guide with a fun ar­ray of Bol­ly­wood Kitsch ’n’ Kraft (beach bags, $20), while World Vi­sion (world­vi­sion.com.au/gifts) sug­gests ‘‘gifts of food and in­come’’ for needy com­mu­ni­ties, such as $45 for a mar­ket garden starter pack. Ox­fam’s gift guide (ox­famshop.org.au) brims with hand­i­crafts such as re­cy­cled pa­per triv­ets from Viet­nam (pic­tured, $7.95). Tear Aus­tralia (use­fulgifts.org) sug­gests do­nat­ing to health and ed­u­ca­tion projects, and Bush Her­itage Aus­tralia (wildgifts.bush­her­itage.org.au) asks us to help pro­tect in­dige­nous an­i­mals, birds and habi­tats.
