Gifts to Give: Charitable Charms from Altruette

Dreidel Charm

Each one of Altruette‘s delicate charms represents a cause, ranging from animal welfare to children’s non-profits, and its dreidel ($115-$145) is no different. Fifty percent of profits from the tiny jewel benefit the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, an organization founded in 1881 that helps Jewish and other refugees and migrants escape violence, repression and poverty and find safety in the United States, Israel and elsewhere. To date, the organization has helped more than 4.5 million people worldwide — all based on the principle of “tikkun olam,” Hebrew for to “fix the world.” With Hanukkah about to start, grab one of these golden dreidels, and know you’re making a difference.
