Give Back this Holiday

I know this year the money might have been tight, you want to give but you dont have the funds?? Well here is a way you can give that loved one a gift and give to those less fortune or your favorite charity. Here are ideas.

How about give an oranment made by your favorite designers like Sarah Jessica Parker or Gwen Safani?? ( $20-$50) at HSN

100 percent of the profits, no less than 30 percent of the purchase price of each ornament, will be donated to St Jude Children's Research Hospital

How about a Ring for the women in your family. Even for the men- tell them that men celebrities wear them too!) With each purchase, $70 goes to the Save the Children Foundation. From Bvlgari.

Give for the kids that they can hold while you read their favorite book to them. Also, Build-A-Bear Workshop will donate 50¢ to First Book to provide new books to children from low-income families and 50¢ to the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation to support other literacy and education programs. Build-A-Bear Workshop.

I know you will be baking those cookies to share and of course leave for Santa. Why not make yummy cookies and give to your favorite at the same time? or how about giving to the ofice staff so you can start pay it forward?? Try this by Baking for Good.

Fifteen percent of each purchase benefits a charity of your choice, including a wide range of women’s causes.

Now, of course there are so many more ways to give this season. So, just remember when you are out buying for your friends and family, there are other out there that would love to be able to have a great holiday season as well, so why not help any way you can. If its giving coats to the cold or homeless. Giving to cancer research so those who are effected can spend next Christmas with their loved ones. Or how about those men and women outside ringing the bells for the Salvation Army, drop a few cents or dollars in there to help. When you are t the toy store, why not pick up something extra for those kids who cant wait for Santa to come! Anything you do will be a big help and not only make someones holiday but give you a great feeling.

Merry "giving" Christmas Everyone!
