The #purchasewithpurpose movement has really taken off lately. So many products are coming to market that exist to contribute to greater good. This Holiday season, as we all look for ways to give back, these products with a purpose are perfect gifts – both for your friends and family and for those who benefit from their charity.
For our 4th Day of Christmas this year, here are 4 gift ideas that give back too.
Started here in Dalhart, Purpose Coffee offers gourmet coffees, with all proceeds benefitting child wellness projects around the world. $5 of each bag goes to mission work in the same ares where the coffee originates. They are sponsoring projects like improving access to clean water and providing vitamins to undernourished kids, rescuing orphans and placing them in permanent care, and equipping schools and providing school fees and supplies.
They recently introduced a bold Colombian roast and a light chocolate-y Ethiopian roast, in addition to the original Thai roast – all available at B. Whimsy!
Pair your bag of coffee with a holiday candle, and you have an awesome gift set! Our new line of Bridgewater Candles also aim to help kids in developing countries. With the purchase of a candle, 3 meals are provided to a hungry child. So one candle feeds a kid for an entire day!
(And the candles smell great too!)
Here’s another candle with a purpose behind it – but this company’s mission is to reduce, reuse, recycle, and relax. These unique candles are made from recycled wine, beer, or liquor bottles that would otherwise clutter our landfills. Pick up their Holidaze seasonal candle or one of their awesome everyday scents!
Vera Bradley Breast Cancer Awareness Pattern
Vera Bradley started a foundation for breast cancer research – and they always introduce a pattern from which the proceeds are used to fund the foundation. Their current pattern is this fun pink and blue geo pattern – available in lots of different products! Vera Bradley is always one of the most popular teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, and gifts for girls!
Hope everyone finds a few ways to #purchasewithpurpose this season! And, hint hint, for our 5th day of Christmas we will send out the announcement via text. So, make sure you’ve joined our mobile community before then! If aren’t a part of it, you can join by texting the word BWHIMSY to the number 40691, then follow the prompts on the screen!
