Gift Ideas That Give Back To Charity
If you are struggling with finding that right gift for that special someone on your Christmas shopping list, here’s an idea. Why not give a gift that gives a little something back to a charitable organization? That way you end up giving twice as much with a single gift. There are countless gifts available that have charity connections to them. However, here at WeatherBug we picked our favorites and put them on the following list:
Alex and Ani Lighthouse Charm Bangle
When you purchase this cute charm bracelet from Alex and Ani, you are helping the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. A total of 20% of the purchase price of each Lighthouse Charm Bangle will be donated and will assist in finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease as well as myeloma.
Coca-Cola Company’s 5by20 Program
Any item purchased through Coca-Cola’s 5by20 Program assists female entrepreneurs in all parts of the world. The program was created in order to give female artisans global exposure. It also gives these talented women access to training and the tools they require in order to build their businesses.
Founded by a three-time cancer survivor, AWE Jewelry donates 20% of their sales to one of several National Charity Partners they support. You could buy a ring or other piece of classic looking bling for someone and end up supporting Cancer Care, The Trevor Project, RAINN or Nami as a result.
Love Your Melon
This company was founded with the goal of outfitting a hat for every child in the United States who is battling cancer. You can help by purchasing the black and white speckled beanie offered this season. A total of 50% of the profits earned will end up fighting pediatric cancer through the list of Love Your Melon non-profit partners.
Amour Vert Peppi Organic Cotton T-Shirt
This company is in the business of creating sustainable fashion wear as well as promoting the use of non-toxic dyes. American employment is also on their fundraising radar. For each and every t-shirt purchased Amour Vert will plant a tree.
TOMS One for One
Helping others is the focus of the TOMS One for One program. All you need to do is purchase any TOMS product which includes bags, eyewear, shoes and coffee. When you make a purchase, the company will help someone in need.
Ikea Sagoskatt Soft-Toy
Thanks to a worldwide children’s drawing competition organized by Ikea, over 70,000 entries were received. A total of ten were selected and turned into soft toys. To show how committed they are to this project, Ikea will donate 100% of the proceeds from these toys to the Save The Children’s hurricane relief efforts targeted for Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico.
