Christmas 2017 – Charitable Gift Ideas

Post Thanksgiving, post Black Friday… I’m pretty sure we all can agree we have a whole lot to be thankful for. This year I’ve started to teach my 6 year old the importance of charity and helping others in need, which inspired me to write this. If you feel like you have a million gifts to buy this year but still want to give back or donate in any way check out a few of the MANY companies that donate to charities, and no donation whether big or small goes unnoticed.

::: Sevenly // Autism Community Collection ::: This one is near and dear to my heart. $7 (or 7% depending) from each purchase goes towards advanced resources for the Autism Society. Sevenly supports multiple causes from Autism, cancer, education, environment, human trafficking to sharing kindness and anti-bullying. Sevenly has donated over 5 million dollars and by rocking their trendy clothes your spreading the positive message that people matter! //


::: Love Your Melon // Beanie ::: For every hat purchased, Love Your Melon donates a superhero beanie to a child battling Cancer in addition to supporting pediatric oncology non-profits to fund cancer research and help support families of kids battling cancer. Their beanies are comfortable, washable and made right here in the USA. //


::: All The Feels // Extra Cozy Reversible Blanket ::: Incredibly warm, incredibly soft and incredibly necessary! For every item purchased, All The Feels donates one blanket (or the monetary equivalent) to their non-profit partners to provide warmth to those in need. These blankets are amazing quality for their affordable price and can be found at one of my favorite stores; Target!  //

unnamed-2::: My Red Tea // Organic Rooibos Tea ::: Founder Kim Koen has a passion for health, fairness, for the environment and for the highest quality, realest deal Rooibos tea straight from South Africa! In addition to carefully selecting the right suppliers, they donate 10% of profits to support education in their Rooibos farming communities. Each purchase helps local communities and creates jobs. I’m a tea addict and this is a unique way to give back. //

This gift set alone provides 350 meals! How amazing is that?! I truly believe with the abundance of food we have in America no-one should go to bed hungry, and when we all band together to make a change, amazing things can happen. //
