Project 7 & Teaching Your Kids to Give Back

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Project 7 but all my opinions are my own. #chewforchange #pmedia One of the challenges we face as parents is raising charitable kids who are others-focused.  And let’s be honest–it’s a challenge for us as adults a lot of the time...

Shops with a cause…..And they’re awesome too!

Sometimes when I ask people where they got something they respond with some gem of an online shop that I’ve never heard of.  And most likely vice- versa. Because the truth is–there are so many amazing little shops out there–and some of them support incredible causes.  Today, I wanted to share a few of my favorites with...

Chickens. A gift for the person who has everything.

Before Thanksgiving, my Dad sent me a cryptic e-mail with a link to a website saying, “This would be a good Christmas present.” Considering my Dad rarely gives out any sort of Christmas present ideas, I was intrigued to see what he would be asking for this year. What I found was a website called Gospel for Asia, an organization that has...

Companies with a Purpose: TOMS, BOBS, and more…

Last year, Sara wrote about TOMS and how buying a pair of shoes can be much more purposeful than a simple consumer decision. It was a great reminder about supporting companies who are making a difference, one pair of shoes at a time. Then, this fall, my daughter came home from school shopping with my mom, toting a pair of BOBS by Sketchers. They...

Back-to-School Haircuts with a Purpose…

As parents, we try to instill values in our kids that we hope take root in their tender souls and grow into generosity, compassion, and unselfishness. Some days it feels like our words are skipping across rocky soil or that the weedy excess of the world is successfully taking over. But then there are other days, when our kids surprise us with their...

Ready…Set…Energize! My afternoon with Habitat for Humanity & Energizer…

Volunteering is one of those things that I know I want to do, but when it comes down to it, I don’t always make the time. So when I had the opportunity to head down to a Habitat for Humanity build with a group of amazing West Michigan bloggers (a huge shout out to Jen from Big Binder, Sarah’s Deals, jodimichelle, and StaceySays), a...

Human Trafficking….Join the Fight, Change the World

Some issues are so heart-wrenching it’s much easier to ignore them….who wants to hear about the exploitation of children? Whenever I encountered stories about human trafficking in the past I felt an overwhelming sense of despair….and helplessness. How can one person, an average suburban mom like me, do anything to stop the huge and...

Cheers to this Charitable Idea

Posted by on Mar 22, 2012 in Be Whole, Charitable Sense | 6 comments

With all the nice weather we’ve been having, haven’t you wanted to pour yourself a glass of wine, sit out on your back deck and enjoy it (especially since we’re not sure if this balmy weather is going to last)? Speaking of wine, this month I ran across a great organization – ONEHOPE Wine, that makes and...

Bright Future International…you can help with a facebook “like”!

Each month, we try to highlight or suggest charitable opportunities or non-profits to follow and think about how we can help by donating time, dollars or raising awareness. I’m bringing this up because, well, let’s face it, at this point in our lives we actually don’t have a ton of free time and we don’t usually have a ton of...
