The first Slovenian catalogue of socially responsible gifts »Krilca, Gifts with Magic Powers« (Slo. Krilca, darila s čarobno močjo) was presented by Umanotera in 2007. Krilca follow the innovative concept of ethical gifts which was first introduced in U.K. as Good Gifts Catalogue. Each gift from the catalogue represents a good work or else support for a specific socially responsible project, such as education of children in Ghana, preservation of rain forest in Ecuador, support for Slovenian red nose clown doctors, etc. Krilca offer a simple possibility for ethical gift giving which renders fascinating sustainable results. By helping individuals and supporting beneficial projects, Krilca represent small steps towards the better world.
