Gray Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Sleep in Sunday 😉 and Cyber Monday have all passed… today is a day to shop for a good cause. #GivingTuesday is all about supporting social good.
There are many companies that exist to help support small businesses, artisans or to give back to important social causes. I am sharing a few of my favorite ones today.
Shop From Home
The Home. T sells great state-centric shirts and totes to raise money for multiple sclerosis. I own a blue and grey Arizona shirt, and practically live in them.
Novica sells unique handmade gifts from around the world at fair prices that allow artisans to support their families.
Uncommon’s Better To Give program donates $1 of every purchase to your choice of 4 different non-profits: RAINN, American Forests, Women for Women International, and City Harvest.
Tucson specific #GivingTuesday ideas!
Check out my Tucson Toy Drive 2013 list, there are many local places you can drop off a new unwrapped toy for a child in our community!
The Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona has several ways to help including shopping from their Amazon Wish List. Shop from home and it will be delivered directly to the diaper bank!
Give Your Time
Can’t afford to donate any “things” this holiday season. Consider volunteering your time at the food bank or another local organization that helps support your community.
