The Wonderful Gift of: Philanthropy

.

It's almost Christmas my friends! 13 days to be exact. Are you finished with your Christmas shopping? I'm not even close!

This week, we want to help you guys out with some of those pesky gifts you need to get for your friends and family that you can't find a gift for! Today's post is for your loved ones whose conscience drives them and everything they do, and consume. What we buy has a direct impact on everyone around us, but here in America, we don't often think about that. Target is so easy. A one stop shop! I'm not knocking Target, because I personally would like my ashes to be scattered there when the time comes, but it's not only nice to branch out sometimes, but it's important to do so! Many of you readers are entrepreneurs so you absolutely get this correlation of shopping small businesses to support the families and communities that those small businesses are in. So take a gander at some of these gift ideas and know that by buying any of these products, you aren't just crossing another name off of your list, you are helping a kid to go to school, you are helping a mom to be able to feed her family, you are stimulating the economy for an entire community in an impoverished country.

Jessica Eileen Drogosz, one of our precious Showiteers, has recently enlightened us to some beautiful artisans, and amazing companies down in Haiti.

Signature Headband, Set of three scrunchies, Key Chain

Savoix

This adorable head band, scrunchies, and key fob set is just one of the many sweet gift ideas you will find over at https://www.sa-voix.com . This is a company that believes in things like Purpose over products, and that ‘tout moun se yon moun' (that everyone is someone). When you purchase one of their products, you are helping them to continue to shine their bright light in Haiti, and beyond.

Papillon Enterprise

Are you tired of seeing the same old nativity sets at everyone's houses? I bet you haven't seen a nativity set like this one! It's made out of a real Haitian coconut! Are you kidding me with the cuteness?? The people and animals are made of clay and painted by hand. Check out more amazing handmade gifts like dolls, jewelry, wall art, and so much more at Papillon Enterprise.

Wild and Free Supply

Our sweet, and philanthropic Showiteers, Suzy and Lucas VanDyke started this amazing company: Wild and Free Supply with the desire to help their friends down in Honduras. Not only are these products amazing to look at, and so very practical to use, but they are handmade with integrity and pride.

These gifts are truly the kinds that keep on giving, and I don't mean that in a re-gifting sense! I hope this helped you find some unique gifts for your unique friends. Join us on Social Media for a giveaway from one of these great companies!

See you tomorrow for more wonderful gift ideas.
