it's the thought that counts
A whole new paradigm --- a gift to one person that will benefit others.
Ever since a dear friend introduced me to the Tom's brand this past summer, I have been trying to find a reason to buy a pair for myself. It does not hurt that for each pair I buy, Tom's will send another pair to someone in need. Just think of a child walking a mile without shoes (or wearing ill-fitting ones), and you'll find a compelling reason to add a pair to your gift list this holiday.
Think Pink. Or Yellow. Find a way to support a cause close to your (or the beneficiary's) heart through your purchase. Or better yet, make a donation to a favored cause in the recipient's name. They will love you for it, and your money will go into life-saving research. [avon.com, susankomen.org, fordcares.com]
Think green. Upcycled. Made of recycled or repurposed materials. Items made of fabric and other materials that would otherwise end up in landfills. Toys made of wood or recycled plastic. [uncommongoods.com, vivaterra.com, amazon.com]
