Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could give to a charity and buy a loved one a special gift at the same time?
So many charities need our help this year. Our current economic state is undoubtedly inhibiting their ability to raise money. This year, I encourage everyone to explore buying just one gift that is associated with a charity. There are so many fabulous finds out there that are perfect gifts, while still supporting charities in need.
1. Alex Woo: Net proceeds of the tree of life necklace benefit the Right Action for Women charity founded by Christina Applegate
2. Macys: Heart for Haiti was developed to allow Haitians to produce and sell homemade crafts through macys.com
3. Tom's Shoes: For every pair purchased, Tom's donates a pair to a child in need with the One for One program.
4. Project Red: This organization partners up with some of the most well known companies including apple, gap, etc. to create (RED) products. These companies then contribute up to 50% of their profits back to the Global Fund, supporting HIV and AIDS programs in Africa.
