Mother's Day is approaching (don't panic, you have a few weeks). Instead of sending mom the same old flowers and chocolate, why not buy her the gift of giving? And of course, chocolate.

Godiva has partnered with FEED on a new series of tote bags for Mother's Day. The bags are made at Africa's Fair Trade Certified garment women-run factory in Liberia, and retail for $25. The Liberian artisans who craft the totes contribute to the country's economic recovery after over a decade of civil war. And the purchase of each bag not only funds their work, but also helps the UN World Food Progamme provide 10 school meals for children in Africa.

And to sweeten your gift even more, you can add in a box of chocolates. Mom will be so proud of you.
