For today's Holiday Gift Guide I wanted to share gifts from companies that give back. Each of the items above and the companies I share below give either a percentage or a give a product to a cause or person in need. What a great way to celebrate the holidays by not only showering the ones you care about with love but also giving back to someone in need.
1.) This beautiful necklace is from Purpose Jewelry, a company that hires women who were victims of human sex trafficking. They give these women jobs, opportunities to go to college and a fresh start after traumatic situations.
2.) ROMA Boots are not only super cute but support a good cause (love this red pair!). For every pair of boots purchased ROMA donates to a child in need. "ROMA's ultimate goal is not only to provide aid, but to educate. By doing so we will empower them to contribute their gifts & talents to society, eradicate poverty as a condition and a state of mind to make this world a better place."
3.) These makeup pouches are from Bloom & Give a company who donates 50% of their profits to programs that send girls to school in developing countries. The company states that "In developing countries like India, education is the most effective way for a girl to escape the cycle of childhood marriage, pre-teen pregnancy and abuse. A middle-school educated girl will marry 4 years later, have 2 fewer children, and double her income. Educated women make their communities more tolerant and open-minded, and the world needs them now, more than ever!" Amen to that!!
4.) This gorgeous handmade leather tote has been on my wishlist for a while! It is from the lifestyle brand ABLE. The company is "focused on ending generational poverty by working with women who have often overcome extraordinary circumstances. We manufacture directly in the communities we wish to impact, both locally and globally, creating jobs and ending the cycle of charity dependency." Your purchase helps give a woman a job and maintain dignity.
5.) I worked with DIFF Eyewear for Cyber Monday and LOVE them (I have this pair)! Not only are their sunglasses amazing quality but for every pair purchased a pair of reading glasses is donated to someone in need. Oh, and they're offering up to 50% off right now (heck yes!).
7.) Better World Books collect and sell new and used books online to donate books and fund literacy initiatives worldwide! They've donated over 21 million books so far, how cool is that!? Oh, and they are also super green and ship their books in carbon balanced packaging (bonus!).
8.) This Leather Tassel is the perfect addition to your favorite bag (and a great stocking stuffer!). It is from the company FEED. For every purchase made from FEED a certain amount of meals are donated to a child in need.
9.) Sevenly is a an awesome marketplace website for nonprofits to promote their causes and businesses. They share new causes each week, each one is unique and supports/donates to something different. It is a great one stop shop and a way to learn about different charitable companies. This particular Adopt t-shirt donates proceeds to foster care support through Arrows Nest.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you find something you love.
