5 on Friday {Gifting with Meaning}

Friday, December 5, 2014

With Christmas upon us I wanted to share some great sites that offer beautiful gift ideas for great causes. We always have so many people to buy for who don't necessarily need anything, but with these gifts you're also giving back to others.
 10 Free Ways to be HAPPY at the36thavenue.com
FEED has a mission of "Creating Good Products That Help FEED the World." They offer a wonderful variety of products and all at different price points. The really neat thing is that each product has a number on it which indicates how many people are being fed when that item is purchased.
Heifer is a wonderful company that was started in Arkansas. Their mission is to "work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth." It's a really great organization where you can really feel involved, and there are several different ways to give.
This organization is actually pretty dear to my heart, it was started by ANGELA who I actually went to high school with. One Loom was created to help single Guatemalan mothers provide for their families. They provide hand woven items such as camera straps, headbands, guitar straps, and key chains.
With each pair of TOMS purchased, they will give one pair to a person in need. They also do the same with eyewear. And now TOMS has also teamed up with Target and for every TOMS + Target item bought they'll give shoes, a blanket, or meals to those in need. They have some adorable products on the TARGET site so go check it out!
This site offers beautiful jewelry at all different price points. When you check-out you can actually choose which charity you'd like for the profits to be donated to. 100% of the profits are donated to the charity of the purchaser's choice.
Make a difference this year and give gifts with meaning!
