The article I posted in the previous post has really got me thinking. It is kind of too late for this year to have a drastic change but the importance of intentionally giving and teaching your children how to give definitely keeps popping up.
So I am challenged, in a good way.
Now that we are in the throes of Christmas shopping (I know, some of you may be done) we are going to compile a mini-list of places you can buy gifts that benefit others! (A list of catalogs to shop for others is also available at the end of the article I posted earlier this morning). This is where I NEED YOUR HELP. My schedule is tight right now, I am going to start a small list and I want you to add on. Leave a comment of the website, what they sell and what it benefits. It needs to benefit others and give me the website, these are the only requirement. M’kay? Fun huh?
Ordinary Hero – proceeds benefit different projects, internationally and domestically. great apparel, mugs, jewelry, (If you know Ryan and Amber Prevo, putting their name in the memo when you purchase something contributes 40% of the proceeds towards their adoption fund).
