As the holidays are just around the corner, you may be compelled to not only give gifts but to also give resources and opportunities to those in need. Here are some products that do both! Give back this holiday season with these gifts that are meant to please and provide. Do good, be good, THINK good!
Alex and Ani Charity by Design
Gives: 20% of the purchase price from each Paper Crane Charm Bangle sold, with a minimum donation of $25,000, between October 2017 and December 2018, to The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NEED), to help push for a social, political, and economic agenda that will make sure that violence against women no longer occurs.
One Hope: Red Wine Gift Box
Gives: funding to help generate ABA therapy for children with autism. ABA therapy helps children with autism by using certain techniques to help them acquire basic skills such as looking, listening and imitating, and more complex skills such as reading, conversing and understanding another person’s perspective. This helps them to communicate better with peers and loved ones over time.
Gives: funding to help people obtain food, water, shelter, jobs, medical care and income in Syria, Iraq and the United States.
Gives: $.25 of each bracelet to Baby2Baby, which helps provide low-income children 0-12 years old with the basic necessities that every child deserves.
Gives: a tree, by planting it after a WeWood watch is sold—An initiative in collaboration with nonprofit organizations such as American Forests and Trees for the Future.
Grounds & Hounds Coffee

Gives: 50% of the proceeds of each chef’s chosen ingredient, as well as 10% of every other Delicacies purchase, to the chefs’ hunger-related organizations.

This year, charities include New York’s City Harvest, Food Bank for New York City, Share Our Strength, and No Kid Hungry.
Gives: to any schools, sports teams, clubs or organizations that want to be fundraised for through variety boxes containing 36 bars.
