If you’re at a loss to find thoughtful gifts for family and friends, you can make a difference in communities that need assistance while putting a smile on a loved one’s face. This holiday season, please consider purchasing gifts that positively impact local businesses, artisans, and non-profit organizations, and share this post to inspire others to give gifts that make a difference. Thank you.

For a list of #GivingTuesday sites, please check out 21 Ways to Give Back Through Your Holiday Shopping by Julia Claire Campbell. In addition, you can access lists from my prior blog posts: Tis the Season and Make a Difference When Gift Giving, Give a Goat.

“We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Together, with a team of influencers and founding partners, we launched a global movement that has engaged over 10,000 organizations worldwide.” – #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.
