Give and Take

You're passionate about your work. As a partner, parent, son, or daughter (probably more than one of those) you're also committed to family. We think Vassie from Annapolis, Maryland said it best in her review of this this artfully industrial pewter keychain, which features a bead that slides between the etched words "work" and "life": "We each hold the keys to balancing our lives. This is the perfect reminder of that."

We should all be able to balance the two, but most Americans can't afford to take time off to care for a new child or seriously ill loved one: Just four states make paid family leave a requirement in the workplace. $1 from the purchase of this keychain will go to Family Values @ Work—an organization that supports family-friendly workplace policies—and their efforts to bring paid family leave to all 50 states. Made in Lincoln, Rhode Island.
