Consider giving Good Cause Christmas Gifts this holiday season! Christmas is a great time to shower your loved ones with gifts that will make them smile. Most people love to give and receive gifts, but what if the gift itself brings happiness to even more people? There are many companies that donate some, if not all their profits to charities, animals, the environment, etc. This holiday season, consider giving a gift that will give back and make the world a better place. Check out the following companies that sell awesome and wholesome products.
1. Adopt a Honey Bee Hive
My friend tagged me in a post about adopting a honey-bee and that inspired me to write this article. There are actually a lot of honey bee adoption programs that give the buyer a small gift while the profits help bees. This particular one from Bee Friends Farm is $39 and comes with the following:
- A personalized letter with your chosen message.
- Adoption certificate welcoming them into the Honey Bee Guardian program.
- Bee Friends Farm Honey Bee Fact Sheet to equip your recipient with some amazing bee knowledge.
- One 12oz jar of our signature Wildflower Honey.
- Wildflower Seed Packet so your recipient can plant flowers for their neighborhood pollinators!
There are more expensive options with more perks and more benefits. Learn more here.
2. Two Blind Brothers – Good Cause Christmas Gifts
Two Blind Brothers has been on my radar for a while and I finally made my purchase! I’m still waiting to receive it but thought it would be perfect for this list. Bradford and Bryan Manning started Two Blind Brothers to make the softest clothing and gifts in the world and to help the blind community. They donate 100% of the profits back to research for eye disease through Foundation Fighting Blindness. Two Blind Brothers also hire blind workers through organizations like Industries for the Blind to make our items.
They have an eye condition called Stargardt’s disease. The following video explains their story:
When you shop here, you do not know what you are buying. You can pick between the cost of $30, $49 or $89 and you will receive something useful that’s worth the money. Plus, 100% of the proceeds are donated to a good cause!
3. Refugee-Made Soaps and Gifts
Preemptive Love helps refugees all over the world:
“The gifts you give can change the world. They can help a refugee’s small business flourish. They can remind a loved one that they matter. These gifts carry a message of welcome and peace into spaces dominated by fear and mistrust. They’re a reminder of the more beautiful world that’s possible.”
They sell a variety of products including refugee-made soaps and toys. These only cost $10 or so and these incredibly affordable items help their families survive.
4. Akola: DIY Bracelet Kit – Good Cause Christmas Gifts
Akola is a company that helps women support themselves by selling their goods.
“Our brand has been built from the ground up. By women, for women. But flipped on its head. For women who have been forgotten. Who have nothing, but give everything. For women who want to make a difference.
By giving of ourselves and building service into our business, a cycle of hope and change begins—and multiplies—and continues. Come learn, give and grow with us.”
These bracelet kits are made by women in Uganda and they cost $49.99. They are unique and a beautiful gift that can be shared between friends to make one-of-a-kind bracelets! They also have other products in their store that also give back to the community.
Akola means “she works” in local Ugandan dialect, which makes perfect sense given the brand’s mission to give sustainable, life-giving jobs to women in Uganda. So far, they’ve employed 183 Ugandan women in poverty, providing financial stability and educational opportunities.
I have purchased several items from iHeartSeniorDogs in the past. Everything you buy from them helps feed and care for shelter dogs. This Christmas they have a set of collectible angels that feed 30 shelter dogs with each purchase!
A ‘Christmas Miracle’ Artisan Tree Topper
Order with custom name embroidery! Buy it here for $39.99.
Spreading warmth, cheer, and love for shelter dogs is what this festive angel pup does best! Glowing from atop your Christmas tree or mantle, this lovely angel wants to remind you of your kindness for giving back to shelter dogs in need this season. Check out this video of what they do.
