Giving [Half] This Holiday Season

Happy Holidays from verynice! As we gear up for the gifting season we're thinking about how we can give half as well as support social enterprise and nonprofits. Here are some ideas to help you give back this year. Happy holidays! 


Oxfam Unwrapped: Gifts that Give Back

What better way to give back than buying a pair of goats or a duck in someone's name? "Your symbolic gift is actually a donation that will be used where it is needed the most - to help people living in poverty around the world." Oxfam partners with communities around the world to give them what they need to change their ives or start a small business and grow economically. www.oxfamamericaunwrapped.com/

 

Charity: Water 

Charity water is an awesome organization, not only because they're focused on one of the most basic human needs but also because 100% of their donations go directly towards funding clean water projects in areas of need around the world. This means greater health and sanitation. Women and children can also focus on education instead of walking miles to the nearest water source, and communities can build their economies by growing sustainable gardens. https://donate.charitywater.org/home

 

Sevenly

Sevenly brings funding and awareness to some of the world's most important causes by sponsoring a new organization each week and donating $7 to them from every uniquely designed item purchased. This holiday season, they're focusing on children in need by gifting shoeboxes filled with school supplies, hygiene items, and toys to little ones in war torn countries like Northern Iraq. Fill a shoebox with small gifts for a friend and then donate to Operation Christmas Child in their name.  http://www.sevenly.org/pages/operation-christmas-child

 

#givehalf

And then there's this: our social enterprise business model adapted for gift giving! Buy two gifts, donate one to a local organization that is collecting gifts for those in need.  http://givehalf.co/

 

Not finished with your holiday shopping? neither are we. We hope this helps + that you're having a verynice holiday season!
