I like the inscription on it, so I bought it for a friend. When I opened it up I was a little disappointed at how small it was, but then I read the information card that came with it. I was so touched by what I read that the size didn't matter anymore. It was designed by and benefits a public NYC Art Program for kids. The description of the program and what it does for the kids is inspiring and it is really uplifting to know that part of the money goes to a good cause. If you are looking for a nice gift with meaning behind it I would highly recommend this product!

I bought this as a gift to a friend that just defended his dissertation and earned his PhD in Social Work. I think that he really appreciated the gift. Overall, I think that the sentiment is nice. It would have been better though if Ghandi was actually noted as the writer of the quote on the piece. Also, the piece was quite a bit smaller than I thought it would be.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Be The Change Paperweight:

        I was disappointed when this product arrived. It is very pretty, but it is also very small and not very heavy, which makes it difficult to use as a paper weight. I was expecting something different and would not have ordered this had I realized the size and weight were what they are.
