For most of us, the holidays are an enjoyable and peaceful time of year, but that’s not true for everyone. This year, give thanks by helping those in need. Make an effort to purchase gifts that give back or make a donation in your recipient’s honour.
When you purchase the Soft Hands Kind Hearts Hand Cream from The Body Shop, 100% of net sales go to ECPAT, a global network of charities helping to end child sex trafficking, child prostitution and child pornography around the world. $10, thebodyshop.ca.
Help support local initiatives in developing countries by donating money for seeds, clean water or tools for a garden. Visit giftsthatmatter.ca.
