They say that Christmas is the time for giving and, as far as we’re concerned, that couldn’t be more correct! Whilst we all love receiving gifts from our loved ones, there’s something special about giving our own gifts to those we love and, as far as we’re concerned, that’s what Christmas is all about. With this in mind, we’re encouraging you to go that little extra mile this year and do your bit for others as well as doing your very best for yourself and your family. With that in mind, we wanted to take a look at just two great ways in which you can do your bit for others over the coming weeks.
Buy Fair Trade
You’re almost certainly going to have gifts left to buy and with a few days until the last posting dates for guaranteed pre-Christmas delivery, why not consider buying fair trade gifts? Companies such as AngelShare offer a fantastic selection of fair trade and ethically sourced gifts as well as putting 5% of purchases into loan funds for developing countries. This is a great way to help others in numerous ways and you’re killing two birds with one stone getting great gifts as well as ensuring the producers get a fair price.
Donate To A Charity
Whether you can afford to donate £1, £10 or £100, it’s the thought that counts and every little does help when it comes to donations! At this time of year, one of the best charities you can help is one such as Shelter, a charity who, at this time of year, are the only hope some people have of getting a warm meal and a roof over their heads at Christmas. People fall into homelessness for many reasons, however at this time of year, every little helps and we all deserve a Christmas dinner and some great company! Every little helps and really does go appreciated!
