Give Love: You Give, They Give

20111215-092154.jpgThe countdown to Christmas has begun! With only 10 shopping days left, and one final weekend, we need to get busy! Don’t forget to give love this holiday by purchasing a gift that gives back. Here are a few of my favorite retailers who are donating a part of sale proceeds to various charities.

Rachel Roy shares her causes and you can choose to shop the collection that benefits your favorite cause. Choose from Haiti, OrphanAid Africa or Kindness is Always Fashionable.

For every St. Jude electronic gift card purchased, they will donate $5 to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
***Fun Fact: you can send these immediately to the recipient via email, Facebook or print and give!

Instead of hosting my annual holiday party, I chose to donate the money that I would have spent on food and drinks to buy toys for families in need. I chose a local charity called Family Giving Tree. You can find local community organizations or donate to larger projects such as Toys For Tots.

As always, you can purchase an extra bag of groceries and donate them to a local food bank or shelter. Many grocers team up with various local cabotage during the holidays and have donation stations onsite making it even easier to give.
