It’s the season of giving and you know what they say… your greatness is not what you have, but what you give. With that in mind, I’ve rounded up seven charitable gifts that are fit for everyone on your wishlist. There are thoughtful ways to bring a smile to the fitness buff and skincare junkie while making a difference. Heck, even your man has something he’ll enjoy on this list and you’ll enjoy shopping too becuase it’s for a great cause!
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop. It’s the easiest way to give back because you don’t have to do anything but shop. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same prices, selection, and experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support. I went with Best Friends Animal Society but you can seriously choose anything. Just bookmark smile.amazon.com and watch how quickly your donations will rack up over the holiday season. You might be surprised!
AUrate jewelry is handmade in New York City from ethically sourced materials. Positive social impact drives what they do, so they’ve partnered with Philadelphia schools and dontae a book to economically underprivileged kids with every piece sold. Not to mention, they have some chic earrings for the holiday season.
Best Friends Animal Society makes it possible to sponsor an animal in need. Your gift of sponsorship helps these pets receive the tenderness and care they need, which is sure to give your animal-loving recipient a dose of the warm fuzzies, too. You can notify your giftee of the contribution with a personal note thanking them for their contribution and telling them about the sweet animal they helped!
K. Deer Each one of their striped leggings is named after an inspiring woman and supports a cause that is close to her heart. Their intention is to create a platform and community that inspires others to give back. For each sale of their striped leggings, up to 10% of proceeds goes directly to causes raising awareness and creating positive change for individuals and communities in need.
L’Occitane has some great stocking stuffers and hostess gifts. I love this festive hand cream set for both! L’Occitane does a great job of giving back in general through their foundation. Their two main initiatives support visual impairment around the world and economic emancipation for women in Burkina Faso. On top of that, our employees participate in Foundation projects. If you need some gift ideas, check out my video on L’occitane Favorites and below is what I’m loving for the holiday season.
