It’s very easy to get caught up in the frenzy of holiday shopping and gift giving; anyone who has ever been to the mall during the holiday season is all too familiar with this. Gift giving can be a lot of fun and it’s a great opportunity to make those closest to us feel special. Yet, throughout all of this, it’s important for us to take a moment and think about those less fortunate.
So this year, why not consider giving a gift that keeps on giving? There are a lot of amazing ways to give a more meaningful gift to your loved ones, while at the same time help support some pretty awesome charities that are working hard to make our world a better place!
Here are just a few unique gift ideas:
Earth Rangers is a Kids Conservation Organization, a not for profit that is dedicated to educating children and their families about biodiversity, inspiring them to adopt sustainable behaviours, and empowering them to become directly involved in protecting animals and their habitats.
When you do your holiday shopping at The Earth Rangers Shop, not only do you get awesome Earth Rangers gear like t-shirts, stuffed animals and water bottles (perfect gifts for the animal lovers in your life), but you’ll also be supporting educational programs. This past year, Earth Rangers visited over 230,000 students in schools across Canada, and to date, over 100,000 kids have become official Earth Rangers, taking part in a membership program that provides fun activities and resources that inspire kids to help protect the environment.
Me to We is an innovative social enterprise that provides products that make an impact and empowers people to change the world with their everyday consumer choices. From handmade jewelry, to stylish home décor and beautiful apparel, Me to We offers an extensive array of gift options suitable for everybody in your inner circle! But more than that, every purchase from Me to We supports children and families in Free the Children’s partner communities, providing them with school supplies, health care, alternative income opportunities and more.
What’s extra special about a gift from Me to We is that you can also use their “Track Your Impact” tool, which allows you to get a close-up look at where your gift was delivered and how it has impacted a life.
If your preference is to give a donation to a charity in lieu of a giving a traditional gift then The Gift of Giving website is the perfect place to start (www.thegiftofgiving.com). Instead of just giving a donation to a charity in honour of someone, Gift of Giving allows the recipient to choose the charity of their choice. There is a long list of charities to choose from allowing your recipient to choose a charity that resonates with them. All you need to do is choose the amount that you want to give and the Gift of Giving charitable gift card will be delivered to your recipient asking them to choose a charity significant to them.
Together, you will both make a difference in the lives of those who need it most! Give your charitable gift card now by visiting http://www.thegiftofgiving.com
