Gifts that Give

There are few things in life I love as much as I love shopping. But one of those things is being an activist and philanthropist. There are so many companies that take part of the proceeds from your purchase and donate them to charities in an attempt to make the world a better place.

With Christmas being two weeks away, I thought I’d share some of my FAVORITE items from a few of my favorite companies that give to people who need really need it.

Who doesn’t love a gift that keeps on giving?

Lokai
http://mylokai.com/

Lokai donates 10% of their net profits to various charities.

I am absolutely obsessed with these bracelets and the story behind them. The black bead holds mud from the dead sea (the lowest place on earth)… this represents the lows in life. It reminds you to stay hopeful. The white bead holds water from the top of Mt Everest (the highest point on earth)… this represents the moments when you feel like you are on top of the world. It reminds you to stay humble.lokai

FEED
www.feedprojects.com

 

On her travels around the world as a World Food Programme (WFP) Honorary Spokesperson, Lauren Bush Lauren witnessed the effects of hunger firsthand. In places like Cambodia, Chad and Guatemala, she saw a program making a dent in child hunger malnutrition: school meals. When a child is given a free, nutritious school lunch, it can break the cycle of poverty she was born into and empower her to change her own life. Lauren founded FEED in 2007 with the simple idea of creating products that would engage people in the fight against hunger in a tangible way.

 

Every one of their products has a number stamped on it that signifies the amount of meals or micronutrient packets provided with its purchase.
