Gifts of Conscience
As we enter a season meant to celebrate “peace on earth,” some people have expressed an interest in giving presents that will alleviate, at least a little, the escalating hardship in the “Holy Land” at the center of this celebration. Please note that many of these gifts are not provided by If Americans Knew, though some support our fundraising with a portion of proceeds.
