Gifts for a Cause

Maison Everett Blog, gifts for a cause, pennies for penny, palomas next, sollybabyI've been so encouraged by the giving sentiment from small businesses this holiday season. Some of my favorite shops have joined together to support causes directly related to helping families with children.  What's better than gifting one of their incredible products to a dear friend or sister while also helping a little one in need?  I ordered 3 sets of the penny rings (small copper rings above) - one for each of my sisters and myself - making it something we can all share in together.  Which gift ideas are your favorites?  Be sure to visit the sites below to learn more about each cause and see all the great options to add to your list... car seats for refugees - Molly Jacques' "Be Compassionate" desktop image would be perfect for someone who works from home or on the go with their laptop.  It's a gorgeous daily reminder, and 100% of your $25.00 goes towards buying a car seat for a refugee child.

families in need during the holidays - The Pennies for Penny fund was started by a precious family after they lost their little two-year-old Penny.  I've been following Jill Thomas for years because I admire her photography work, and now, her spirit and desire to share Penny's story as a way to give to others.  There are some incredible items in the shop from talented artists and artisans.

diapers for low-income families - I recently found out about solly baby and cannot wait to get one of her wraps when baby #2 comes along.  With each purchase, a pack of diapers will be donated in your name now through December 15th.  She's teamed up with other great companies such as Paloma's Nest and LWPH sews so venture over to see all the goodness to be shared there.
