Give the gift of design
One of my favorite holiday gift ideas is one that impacts many: the gift of design through Architecture for Humanity.
By sponsoring a designer (for a client meeting, a day, a week or a month), you can help build a more thoughtful, sustainable future. The designs are for those in the world who need it most—whether it be schools in Tanzania, a medical care facility in Ubwari, or rebuilding homes in Haiti.
While I would love to take credit for this unique gift idea, I really can’t. My friend Lloyd Alter is the one to initially give this gift (supporting a designer with Architecture for Humanity for rebuilding in Haiti), and it filled me with joy knowing this offering will be benefiting people for years to come.
