As I did my holiday shopping this year, I tried to make an effort to purchase from businesses that give back. I browsed through many gift guides that listed gifts for a cause, like this one from She Lives Free. She also created a round-up of several other gift guides with even more ideas for gifts that give back.
Eventually I came across a company called That’s Caring. I ended up buying the muffins and coffee gift box for my mother-in-law from them, and I thought I would recommend it to everyone as an option for a Valentine’s Day gift (or any other occasion), too!
That’s Caring is a socially-responsible gift basket company with a one-for-one business model. For each gift purchased from That’s Caring, they donate weekend meals to a child in need in the United States. They partner with food banks to supply food-insecure children with non-perishable items that will give them the nutrients and sustenance they need to get through the weekend. You can find out more details by visiting their website.
I thought the wine & cheese or the gourmet chocolate confection gifts from That’s Caring would make perfect Valentine’s Day gifts. If you are going to buy wine and chocolate anyway, why not make a bigger impact with your purchase?
I hope that if you are giving someone a gift this year, you try to give a gift that gives back!
