• Lookin’ Good. What’s the world look like through Outreach-colored glasses? Beautiful, hopeful, and free of strain. Even better, while your eyes are most certainly protected by these sunglasses, your view of the bright future our work ensures will never dim.
  • Fill ‘er Up. It’s hard to improve on the bucket. A time-tested means of conveyance, it remains the most sensible, effective means to transport most liquids and many solids. With water collection such a central part of daily life in Outreach-affiliated communities, buckets are on every list.
  • Student Bodies. Most kids giddily splash around in mud puddles and engage in contests to determine by taste who among them has the dirtiest hands. We can’t blame them for their enthusiasm, but we can educate them on the steps they can take to wash up for their own well-being. There’s nothing wrong with a lot of good, clean fun, either.
  • Dish It Out. Bring families together and help them fill their tummies with nutritious, home-cooked meals, while they fill their hearts with memories of the time they spend together.
  • Duck, Duck, Choose. In an uncertain world, you can count on ducks. They’re here to help! As self-starters, they give eggs regularly and without complaint, and their fastidious nature minimizes upkeep costs. They hold up their end of the arrangement. Any incidental costs? Just put it on their bill.
  • Love Letters. Whether checking in with a friend, sending some sweetness to a loved one, or seizing any opportunity in between, it’s always fun to send a card — and even more exciting to find one for you waiting in the mailbox. This set of six cards and envelopes is a nice metaphor for our work: beautiful on the outside, with unlimited potential for amazing things to happen within. Heck, you can even use that last line in your card, if you want.
  • Soup's On (and On, and On...) Plates and forks and stoves, oh my! Not just flatware—flat-everywhere. Let’s stock some cabinets.
  • Espress Your Support. HopeBlend’s crisp citrus flavor is complemented by delicate, full floral notes, finished with a light, sweet, caramel-apple body, made from beans sourced in Asia, Africa, and Central America, all blended by The Roasterie, a Kansas City-based company. It’s 10 ounces of whole-bean, Fair Trade Certified inspiration, and part of the proceeds goes directly to Outreach. Take a mighty, empathetic swig of it from your mug every morning, and feel the jolt of all the good for which you’re responsible. Powerful stuff.
  • Trees are models of generosity in the natural world. Here, have some shade. How about some wood you can sell at market or use for heating and cooking? Plenty you can do with these leaves! Might as well make this air cleaner and sweeter, too. Trees show all the other plants what it’s like to be better than bush league.
  • You Look Nice Today. Before you walk a mile in anyone’s shoes, you should slip on a pair of Outreach-branded socks! Just like Outreach’s work in communities around the world, these socks are high-quality, long-lasting, flexible, a great fit for any style… and also a unique way to let everyone know they should follow in your footsteps.
  • Lavaplatos Sinks, Hope Floats. Lavaplatos, the Spanish word for "dishwasher," provides the most basic, effective means of draining excess water used for bathing, laundry and food preparation away from homes. The basin's strikingly sensible design, ease of installation, and hygienic efficacy definitely make it a life-changer, if not a life-saver. Recipients share a portion of the cost for each basin, which has been modified from its original design to better suit our communities.
  • All Heart, Fewer Sleeves. Turn some heads and change some minds. Show your commitment to Outreach’s brand of goodness by looking the part— our teams in the field, as well as everyone at HQ, wear these regularly as we work with communities to create a sustainable end to poverty. Unlike this shirt, you’ll never fold. Grey Medium is currently out of stock! We apologize for the inconvenience. 
  • Why did the chicken cross the road? If it’s a chicken in one of our partner communities, it was probably in mid-celebratory strut, proud of its role as a delicious, egg-producing, income-generating asset to its owners. Outreach chickens always have great self-esteem, and they always look both ways for safety – no joke. 
  • Show and Tell. Thrill to the ethical adventures of Guarda the Motmot Bird and his vibrantly colored set of ani-pals as they team up to save each other’s homes from scary storms in Outreach’s own beautifully illustrated children’s book! Find a kid you love, cuddle close, and enjoy the same sort of happy ending toward which we all strive, through our support for our community partners.
  • Spread Generosity, Not Germs. Bad news: Poor hygiene is one of the most persistent, ruinous issues facing those in impoverished communities. Good news: Hand-washing stations are a simple, social way to promote hygienic habits, so the only thing going viral is the news of how to stay healthy.

  • They Can Dig It. If you're a farmer, you're going to need some tools if you plan on growing more than weeds and ferns. Outfit a farmer with shovels, rakes, pitchforks, hoes, and a litany of other instruments to make the soil sing.
  • Green and Bear It. Handmade in an Outreach affiliated community in DR Congo, each piece of malachite is utterly unique, dappled with swirling spirals, banded stripes, and sparkling spots in every shade of green. Wearing one serves as an opportunity to share stories of Outreach’s work, as well as standing as a symbol of the lasting impact in communities worldwide.  
  • Sure, you can save some money building a house out of sticks or straw. But for real, lasting shelter, you’re gonna want to invest in something more resistant to heat, cold, rain, and the huffs and puffs of pushy wolves. Just like all of Outreach’s work, the right materials, expertly applied, last a lifetime.
  • A more educated world is one more apt to solve the problems facing it. Give girls and young women access to education, and you’ll equip them with the ability to take active roles in the tomorrows we all share.
  • Ctrl + Alt + Repeat. It’s official: Computers are here to stay. Help someone learn the basics, so that they too might enjoy the benefits of life on the grid — robust record-keeping, easier and more expansive means of communication, access to educational resources, and a lifetime’s worth of videos featuring cats doing all sorts of silly things.
  • That’s Some Pig! From their curly tails to their twitchy noses, pigs are uniquely suited to providing barnyard benefit. They represent a cost-neutral source of fertilizer, as well as an ever-fattening value at market. They’re so ingenious, they even found a use for all that mud that would otherwise go to waste.
  • That's Some Pig! Pedro’s just as charming as his biological counterpart, but twice as cuddly. Buy a real pig from our catalog, and we’ll send you Pedro, who arrives prepped and ready for your affection. This purchase includes a plush toy piglet named Pedro, who measures 7" long from tip to tail.
  • Farmer Fund-amentals. Agricultural practices evolved over thousands of years, so new farmers have some catching up to do. Forget about teaching a person to fish— teach people to farm, and you’ll equip them with valuable skills, as well as giving us a more expansive metaphor for sustainable success we can use in our future marketing materials!
  • Duck, Duck, Choose. In an uncertain world, you can count on ducks. They’re here to help! As self-starters, they give eggs regularly and without complaint, and their fastidious nature minimizes upkeep costs. They hold up their end of the arrangement. Any incidental costs? Just put it on their bill.
  • Full Tummies, Hungry Minds. Passing notes, watching the clock, doodling in margins… school has enough distractions. Hunger shouldn’t be another one. Provide students with three nutritious meals daily, and give them the energy they need to succeed in their studies and get the most out of every recess.
  • Have a Rice Day. A bag of rice can be the only thing that separates a family from an empty pantry during seasonal stretches between harvests. Help minimize the worry, stress, and negative health effects of chronic hunger, keep our partners healthy, and allow for the simple pleasure of families gathering to share a meal each day.
  • The best ribbon one can win? Blue. Best medal? Gold. Best planet? Earth. Best ornament for your tree? These, celebrating the work we do together all over the world, and the resplendent twinkle that reflects all the beautiful people looking on, eyes bright with wonder. Just like your tree, the good stuff we create together is evergreen.
  • Hallowed Hauls. Behind the yoke, the power is intoxicating: Water buffalo are strong, reliable, resilient, and their emissions are clean-burning, which is a non-gross way of saying their dung can be dried and used as fuel. Want it moved, plowed, or fertilized? Boy, oh boy, do we have just the thing for you! (Get some gloves.)
  • Hunting and pecking for just the right stuffed-animal pal? Open wide for Champ the Chicken! He’s a fuzzy reminder of the good you represent, as well as your free gift when you buy four chickens from our catalog. This purchase includes a plush toy chicken named Champ, who measures 4" long from feet to beak.
  • Make it Rain. With sprinklers, farmers can plant larger plots, yield more crops, earn more from their crops' sales, and grow their success ever larger each season.
  • Saved by the Bell. Take any kid, suit ‘em up in a school uniform, toss in a backpack full of books, notebooks, pencils, and other supplies, and presto, they’re all set for a fruitful day at school, whether they like it or not.
