This year, it’s more important than ever to have love in our hearts and to find ways to be kind to one another. I decided that this holiday season, my shopping list would include things that could make an impact. In the spirit of giving, I chose to purchase many gifts from organizations that give back to the community. I knew this would make me feel really good and the person I was giving it too as well, knowing that the purchase of a gift they were receiving went toward helping someone else in need.
Here are a few of the places I found that donate a portion of their proceeds to really great causes! I hope you’ll consider giving some gifts that give back too. Together, we can make a difference!
This is on the top of my list for a couple of reasons. First: wine!!!
Also, there are so many options and price ranges to fit any budget and each item supports a different cause. One Hope’s proceeds have helped plant trees, provide people with clean drinking water, adopt animals , and help veterans- just to name a few. Pick your gift or pick a cause, there is something for everyone! I ordered a few bottles of wine and they were delivered within 2 business days, no extra shipping costs Tfor the speedy delivery.
A couple of my favorite gift options from One Hope:
Champagne, glitter, AND every box provides 25 meals to children in need!
Every box helps provide 1 microloan for a business in a developing country.
Every bottle helps fund ABA therapy for children with autism.
Next up is “Love Your Melon” – 50% of the proceeds from the sale of all Love Your Melon products are donated to nonprofit partners in the fight against pediatric cancer. You can buy a hat….that’s gonna help a KID WITH CANCER. I’m sure you don’t need another reason than that to buy one, but I’ll give you one anyway: They’re super cute!!! And to date, they have donated over 1.5 million dollars and over 80,000 hats.
Bombas – “Bee Better”
Growing up, the items my mom would include in my stocking varied but there was always one constant: SOCKS. Why? Because everybody needs socks! The inspiration for Bombas was formed when two friends came across a quote: “Socks are the number one most requested clothing item at homeless shelters.” The solution? A company that donates a pair of socks for every pair sold. The more socks they sell, the more they donate to someone in need.
If you have any suggestions for great gifts that give back, please share them in the comments section!
