I also take the time to give to the less fortunate, whether it is adopting a family in need, putting some toys into the Toys for Tots bin or dropping extra change into the Salvation Army Santa collections. The idea of children without something to celebrate just about breaks my heart:( So when I am shopping for the people I love, love to buy those gifts that give back, too.
Let's face it, I still have to get something for my dear aunts or teachers but when the gift gives in return, it is much more meaningful. Here is a round-up of some of my favorite charitable gifts this season:
I love this Etched Mercury Class Candlepot from Pottery Barn where 50% of purchase price goes to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
|Teach America Mug from West Elm|
|Loving this bracelet....and you pick the charity it benefits!|
|Cool Metro Tote- can be personalized and donates to your selected charity!|
|Or this beauty of a charm bracelet benefiting children's cancer...so special!|
BTW- I was not given any money or gifts for publishing this post- I just like to share the things I like with the people I like:)
