AuPair Gifts That Give Back ~ Ideas from Susan Robinson

by cv harquail on December 2, 2012

How about some some gift ideas for au pairs that, with their purchase, provide a donation to women’s and children’s causes around the world?

It’s two gifts in one!  The curator of this list is Susan Robinson, known to many of you as AuPair Answer Mom over at Cultural Care.

Susan Robinson has been host mom to nine Cultural Care au pairs. She’s the director of Cultural Care Kids First Foundation helping children in need around the world. She sends Christmas gifts each year to all her former au pairs (and their children!).
