I am currently being solicited by family members for a list of gift ideas for the kids. I prefer to say, “No, the kids don’t need anything.” However, I know that most family members will insist on giving a gift. If you have ever found yourself in the same situation, here is an original gift idea especially for families with two or more children.
Koguma is an ethically made piggybank designed by origami master Yasuyuki Wada. It is entirely made in Saint Malo, France from 100% natural and biodegradable materials. This piggybank is in the shape of a polar bear and it is delivered with the ICECAP application (a simple, yet fun augmented reality app, that reveals the Arctic environment around Koguma).
Starting at 40€, you can order Koguma from Kickstarter and with each sale of Koguma, 3% of the price will be donated to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and their SOS initiative.
“By supporting Koguma on Kickstarter, you will make possible the development of new species and features for Icecap ! Since 2007, we raise awareness on nature preservation through quality, design and responsible products. We work with the International Union For Conservation of Nature and Save Our Species, to put nature conservation at the heart of kids education.”
David Bouvet, Founder of Coq en Pâte
With Koguma, children can not only learn how to save their money, but also become aware about the importance of saving wildlife… a unique and ideal gift that makes us feel good.
