I wanted to approach BFCM differently this year by giving back like never before.
The holidays can be a difficult time for many, and especially human trafficking and abuse survivors who often don't have food security, a loving environment, or a safe place to be. I'm lucky to have all three, and I recognize how much of a gift that is. I'd like to give back to those in need by kicking up my donations to some wonderful donations during the biggest shopping weekend of the year. Will you join me?
Its time to step away from the big box consumerism and embrace our humanity. There are so many reasons to focus your dollars on shopping small this year: support independent small businesses as we face unprecedented challenges, keep dollars out of the hands of corporations that don't focus on human rights, and to support businesses that give back to the community.
Its time to shop handmade and small business so that we can maintain the freedom and independence we all love. While we feast and celebrate, there are many people who face food insecurity, unsafe situations, depression and suicide. Its time to put their needs in the forefront.
This weekend I will be rotating a new sale every day on my site, along with a new charitable donation. Every day I will be posting more about why I chose each organization.
These will be the best deals I will offer this season and your biggest chance to give back by having 10% of your sale donated! That includes the 5% that I always donate to O.U.R., along with 5% added for each of the daily causes. Here's how it will go:
