Our Favorite Places To Donate And Support During #GIVINGTUESDAY And Throughout The Year
We are fortunate enough to not need anything this Black Friday or Cyber Monday. To be honest, I have never gone shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. It terrifies me. I hope I don’t offend anyone, but it seems so contradictory to celebrate a day of gratitude and thanks and then follow it up with binge shopping.
What I can get on board with however, is #givingtuesday.
Instead of putting together a list of BF or CM deals, I wanted to put together a list of our favorite charities to support throughout the year but especially during the holidays. These are all organizations that we truly believe in and love supporting. We are so grateful for the work that they do every day of every year, to insure a better tomorrow for our planet and all of its inhabitants.
I would love to know about organizations that you care about! Share them in the comments below!
I have been raising funds and supporting World Vision for over 15 years now! I was just a young teenager when I was first introduced to the organization and was eager to get involved with their work. We have organized fundraising events and participated in their donation campaigns throughout the years. When I was in high school and college, I started gifting my loved ones with World Vision’s gifting program. With their gifting program you can sponsor a child or buy supplies for families or communities in honor of your loved ones. For more information or to shop their gifting catalog, click here.
World Vision has been caring for children, families, and communities around the world for over 65 years. You can learn more about their history here, and you can also research the transparency and numbers behind it all on one of my favorite charity tools Charity Navigator.
If you donate today during #givingtuesday, World Vision has a live matching program for each gift donated.
Any gift given to World Vision on Giving Tuesday, November 27, will be matched with a donation of product, up to $2 million, from Thirty-One Gifts— helping families around the world with items to keep babies warm, deliver medical supplies, and keep girls in school.
SARAROSE and our sister company Stix and Roses, have been supporting Ocean Conservancy since 2012. Ocean conservation is our main focus throughout the year. If our oceans aren’t healthy we can not survive. We are so proud of the work that Ocean Conservancy does to research, develop, and implement practices that promote the health of our most vital resource.
Founded in 1972, Ocean Conservancy promotes healthy and diverse ocean ecosystems and opposes practices that threaten ocean life and human life. Through research, education, and science-based advocacy, Ocean Conservancy informs, inspires, and empowers people to speak and act on behalf of the oceans. In all its work, Ocean Conservancy strives to be the world's foremost advocate for the oceans.
Protect Our Ocean on Giving Tuesday
Triple Your Donation
What an incredible day for all of humanity to join together and give to causes that dramatically impact our lives. What could be more important than showing our ocean some love? All of us depend on our ocean for water and breath, not to mention the awe and wonder we find at its shores. It gives generously to us. Let's give back to protect vital marine ecosystems and keep our ocean thriving for all to enjoy.
Veterans Empowered To Protect African Wildlife
The goal of Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife is to help end the African poaching crisis and conserve endangered species. We do this by utilizing the unrivaled skills and experience of post-9/11 U.S. veterans to train park rangers and support their communities.
VETPAW are like the Avengers but IRL. I am so grateful to Ryan Tate and to those who serve and work to end horrific wildlife poaching. The time is running out for us to bring an iconic African species back from the brink of extinction, but you can help by supporting these guys and the work they do to devalue ivory and protect rhinos and elephants from poaching.
This is an organization that not only helps protect endangered wildlife, it is a place where those who have served and fought for our country can find a place to utilize their skills and service when they re-enter civilian life.
