While you're thanking a client, vendor or employee this holiday season, why not choose a gift that also gives back? Here are three of our favorites.

Cozzee: Coffee with a Purpose
Combine fair trade specialty coffee and a cause when ordering directly from Cozzee (1). One hundred percent of the company’s profits are distributed to a rotating list of international charitable organizations. Select both coffee bean preference (from rare Mexican blends to espresso) and one of seven charity categories. Prices start at $15.95 for a 12-ounce bag, with $2-$3 per bag sold going to the charities. Freshly roasted beans are delivered within 48 hours. 

FEED 100 Shopper Tote Bag
FEED products help the world’s most-in-need children by providing direct funds for provisions and malnutrition-related programs. The cost of each item, whether a grocery tote ($35) or wine bag ($22), includes a measurable donation; to date, the program has provided over 87 millions meals globally. Each purchase of a FEED 10 bag provides 10 school meals. With a minimum order of 12, they can be customized to incorporate a logo or custom image and text.  

Homeboy Industries Gift Basket
Father Gregory Boyle established Homeboy Industries in 1988 in an effort to address the escalating problems and unmet needs of ganginvolved youth in LA; the nonprofit offers re-entry and rehabilitation services to ex-gang members and those previously incarcerated. It’s expanded from a single bakery into cafes (including one at LAX), catering, a food truck and grocery products. The Inspiration gift basket (2) ($54.95) includes bakery treats, a copy of Boyle’s book Tattoos on the Heart, water bottle, magnet and scratch pad, all in a handsome woven basket. 

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.
