Mother's Day Gifts That Give Back
Basic Needs Scratch Tickets—Starting at $22
LottoLove is the first scratch-off ticket with a social mission and the only lotto that makes everyone a winner. Instead of winning money, the prizes are charitable donations—giving resources like literacy tools, solar lights, clean water, and nutritious meals.
To support people in need directly, LottoLove works with eight charities—Solaraid, LitWorld, Rise Against Hunger, Water is Life, Global G.L.O.W., Running Start, Camfed, and Womankind—to support people worldwide.

GUNAS is America’s first 100 percent vegan fashion brand dedicated to ending animal cruelty in the name of fashion.
Their Koko Collection is made in honor of famous gorilla Hanabiko “Koko” who is known for being the first gorilla to learn sign language.
The lilac purse is handcrafted with premium ostrich embossed rubber fabric, textured cotton lining, and zipper pockets for the most luxurious and fashionable accessory.
Light Up A Household—$38
Available in a variety of different scents, the Light Up A Household candle is hand-poured by women artisans and refugees, and for each candle purchased, 672 hours of solar light is donated to a family living with no access to electricity. Each of the fragrances available are phthalate-free and picked with care and intention.
