It’s December and the cold(ish) weather has started to settle in here in the area (just in time for our upcoming trip to Florida!). There’s something about cold weather that really helps me get into the Christmas spirit (and not in a Grinchy kind of way – I genuinely enjoy it).
You know what else gets me in the Christmas spirit?! Doing Christmasy things…like shopping for the people I love and giving back to the World. That’s exactly why I really enjoy intentional gift giving – which I discussed in great detail (#sorrynotsorry) a couple of weeks ago on the blog. If you missed my Heart of Haiti post, you can find it here. Today, I wanted to share about another great company that gives back to the community with every purchase: PuraVida Bracelets.
PuraVida, which literally means “Pure Life” is an awesome organization that my friend Sarah over at The House of Boys & A Girl introduced me to when she gave me one of their bracelets as a gift (thanks again, Sarah!). Not only is their primary goal to employ artisans in Costa Rica but they also donate to over 190 charitable organizations when you purchase from their site. Take a peek:
I’ve got the 1% for the Planet bracelet and am planning to order a few more for myself (gasp!) and some to give away to friends and family as well. I, personally, think that these are great little gifts that are not only affordable but also have a purpose and I’m excited to share them with all of you.
If you know of a charitable organization that could use some fundraising, they can apply to become a charitable partner with PuraVida and benefit from your purchases.
