‘Tis the season of giving!
During a busy holiday season, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect gifts for friends and family while also finding ways to pay it forward. This year, why not combine giving gifts to your loved ones with giving back to your community and individuals in need? Search no further; here are some of my favorite gifts that just keep giving…
Love Your Melon Beanie
Love Your Melon is committed to giving a hat to every child battling cancer. The charitable apparel brand donates 50% of all product sales to pediatric cancer research and initiatives for children and families affected by cancer.
Grace and Lace Socks
As one of Shark Tank’s most successful companies, Grace and Lace sells quality, fashionable knits and clothing, while also building orphanages and safe houses for young women in India. Their lacy and frilly boot socks are perfect for winter weather.
S’well Water Bottle
S’well combines fashion, functionality, and sustainability into one water bottle! Not only do bottles come in sleek designs, but the vacuum insulation also keeps your drink as cold or as hot as you want. The best part of the brand? S’well partners with UNICEF to help provide clean water to the world’s most vulnerable cities.
Yoobi’s kids stationery is fun, bright, and trendy! For each Yoobi item purchased, the company donates an item to a classroom pack, which is sent to a U.S. school in need when filled.
Kiva Gift Card
Kiva is an international non-profit organization and platform that works to connect lenders with entrepreneurs and alleviate poverty through microloans. With a Kiva gift card, an individual has the opportunity to choose the recipient of their small loan from an online database. Once the loan has been repaid to the lender, the same funding can be distributed again and again to continue changing lives.
FEED Tote Bag
FEED’s reusable canvas “Woman On A Mission” tote is perfect for women who want to make a statement on the go. Each purchase provides ten school meals to children around the world.
Social impact is at the core of aavrani’s mission. Even before aavrani launched, we pledged to donate a portion of annual revenues to the Shanti Bhavan School. This partnership aims to empower children in India to break the cycle of poverty through education, leadership, and compassion. No matter what gifts you’re purchasing this season, consider multiplying the smiles on the receiving end.
