HooplaHa's Top Picks: 7 Gifts That Give Back This Holiday Season
Where did this year go? The holidays are just around the corner, and for once I didn't wait until the last minute to start my Christmas shopping. I love to give, I am always spoiling my family around the holidays. So I ask, why not take the giving one step further? I have scored the internet for gifts that in buying them- gives back to the world in some way. I have personally bought a few of these and I hope you do too. My personal favorite is the plant-able calendar... you can actually plant the pages to grow flowers - how ingenious!
1. Clean Water
Giving to the Clean Water Fund helps bring clean water and hygiene to communities around the world which in turn helps cut child deaths by more than half. You can check out Clean Water Fund to see the different types of donations. But even just $25 doubles in impact to provide one person with access to clean water and all its benefits. Make a donation in someone's name this holiday season!
This adorable calendar is bright and inspirational with different quotes for each month. Each month is printed on seed paper, which means when the month is over plant it in your garden to grow wildflowers!
Not only are these bracelets fashionable, but they go towards many great causes. There are various charity line collections to choose from. But whichever you choose, like Environmental Causes, proceeds go directly to help that cause. Check out the Save the Orcas: anti-captivity braided bracelet!
Simple and elegant, this gift box comes with handmade earnings and two bracelets. Global Good Partners is dedicated to empowering women through dignified work and fair wages. Your purchase will help women artisans from New Jersey to Mbabane gain economic independence and provide healthier futures for themselves and their families.
This cute and cuddly elephant is the perfect gift for your little ones; while it helps improve the lives of over 5,000 people. Swaziland Fair Trade (SWIFT) is a member-based organization that works with 25 groups to employ 5,000 artisans from both rural and urban areas of Swaziland. The sale of this product helps SWIFT address the needs of its member organizations, which include medical care and education programs.
I love this backpack and what it represents. The Lucas Backpack is a symbol for education. Purchasing one helps provide scholarships for students in need. Proceeds go to The Knock Foundation a group based in Kilimanjaro that provides scholarships to communities in need.
The GiveNow card is not only super simple, but it is perfect for everyone on your list. You choose the value of the cards; your recipient chooses the charity; their charity receives a donation. This way, everyone wins this holiday season!
