Gifts that Give Back

With Christmas just about a week away, if you are struggling with some last minute gifts why not give a gift that keeps giving.  These gifts are not only stylish but they support some worthy charities so your loved ones will love getting them and you can feel great giving them. - Sevenly is an organic funding movement to raise money and awareness for different organizations across the globe.  Because there are so many causes and charities with little awareness, funding and following, Sevenly decided to pick one charity a week to raise money.  T-shirts are then designed specific to the cause and available for one week only. then donate $7 for each t-shirt sold to that weeks charity. 

Because I am a Girl, Alex and Ani - Alex and Ani does an entire line of charitable bracelets in which they donate 20% of the sales of the bracelets to selected charities.  Throughout 2012, 20% of all sales, with a minimum donation of $5,000, from the Because I am a Girl Charm will go to Plan International USA’s because I am a Girl initiative, a movement to lift four million girls in the developing world out of poverty.  Other bracelets support charities such as KIPP,  Blessings in a Backpack, The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, and many others.

Tree of Life Necklace, RichRocks - RichRocks will donate 25% of the sale of each 'Tree of Life' necklace to City of Hope's pancreatic cancer research and treatment program.  This exclusive necklace represents the 'Tree of Life', a universal symbol of encouragement, strength and protection. 

TOMS Sunglasses - Most already know the TOMS philosophy of giving back.  Their "One for One"  donates one pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair sold.  TOMS is now going a step further.  Every pair of glasses sold will provide a pair of prescription glasses, sight-saving surgery or medical treatment to someone in need. Currently, TOMS is helping give sight in more than 13 countries worldwide, including Bangladesh, Cambodia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Guatemala, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Paraguay, Tibet, Tanzania, Uganda and the United States. 

ONEHOPE Wines - ONEHOPE donates 50% of their profits to different charities.  Each wine supports a particular charity.  Zinfandel (shown) supports Snowball Express, an organization that supports families and children of fallen soldiers. Since September 11, 2001 more than 8,000 children have lost a U.S. service-member parent as a result of ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Snowball Express brings families together to provide hope for the future during the difficult loss of a loved one.

In 2006 Ford intensified its efforts by introducing Warriors in Pink and the Ford Warriors in Pink line of wear and gear. 100% of the net proceeds from all wear and gear sales is dedicated to the cause with donations going to charities that offer a wide-range of support. Like a circle, hope for a cure is continuous. Brightly colored Warrior symbols create a pattern on one side while a bold color accents the other.
