TreadRight has launched a new holiday campaign – Holiday Gifts That Give Back – as part of an initiative to support the many artisans and conservation organizations worldwide who have been affected by the tourism downturn. Relying on the visitor economy to support the work they do, for many this work is what they depend on for their livelihoods.
To help, as you begin your gift shopping this holiday season, TreadRight is asking people to consider one of its partners who have been drastically impacted by the lack of tourism.
