A Holiday Gift That Gives

You know you have to budget this holiday but you also wantto give some money to charity. It just makes you feel good. Frecklebox, too,believes in giving generously to a worthy cause. That’s why we launched acampaign to donate 10 percent of any Frecklebox purchase to Make-A-Wish, one of the most well-known charities and the largest wish-granting organizations in the nation. Between now and December 25th, your online purchase can help support the granting ofeven more magical wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.

Some other ideas for giving gifts that give back:

– For the relative or friend who likes bath and beauty products, a gift from The Body Shop can help defend human rights, including those of children affected by trafficking and violence.

– Don’t just buy any scarf set. Check out the offerings at Click to Give at the breastcancersite.com and help a woman get a mammogram. Just clicking at the site prompts sponsors to donate.

– If your favorite store or national charity doesn’t have charitable gift options, ask at your local house of worship, school or community center. Chances are they sell gift items to raise money for a cause close to home.
