1. Gifts that Give Back twice!
In any given opportunity, CSDI tries to show its appreciation toward its distinguished guests, colleagues, visiting officials, and others by presenting gifts as tokens of memento and appreciation. Whether it be on a company’s anniversary, special holidays, or other distinctive occasions, selecting the perfect gift can be challenging especially in such a diverse world which always makes a choice even more difficult.
After thorough considerations, we in CSDI decided to go for offering a gift that gives back! By selecting to provide gifts from charity organizations, we concluded that our gifts will not only give delight and joy to the recipient; it will also give back to people in need.
Such choice plays out for us as a win-win solution; on one side are recipients who are glad to be recognized, and on the other side are CSDI making its appreciation known while contributing to society.

3. At CSDI "We Greet for Good"!
People all around the world spend a fortune on greeting cards each year. However, in case that all individuals and businesses buy their holiday greeting cards and other related items from non-profit organizations, card sales could generate big money for worthy causes.
That was the idea behind CSDI's decision to direct the budget to good-will organizations that sell holiday greeting, and tribute cards to help fund their charitable work.
