Just Cause {How to Give Twice}

With the holidays fast approaching (HOWDIDTHATHAPPEN?), it’s time to start thinking about gifts. I love that we all hold the opportunity to shop strategically and bless twice: the person we’re giving to and the person (organization) we are buying from. Nothing feels better to give a gift to someone you love EXCEPT giving it and knowing it helped someone else live in freedom.

There are so many just causes we can give to and bless those who are receiving. I’ve highlighted a few that  help girls and women in our world specifically.  Your purchase will keep on giving. And don’t forget to shop thru Pure Charity to truly maximize your spending this Christmas!

    love this, and I’m going to share it around, if that’s ok. Gospel for Asia has a good Christmas gift catalog also, btw. We let our kids pick between those 4 and last year they gave some to GFA and some to CI :)

    Thank you for this great list; already put your good advice to work ;)
    And I didn’t comment on the last post, the one about feeling alone…but my heart went out to you as I read. You do such a good work with this blog and that family and your ministry, and I am blessed every time I read your words. Every. Time. You aren’t alone in the struggle.

      Oh! And there’s also MadeBySurvivors.com…they’re, as it sounds, products made by survivors of trafficking and exploitation with 100% of profit going towards rescue and aftercare of victims.

    Wonderful list – I ordered stocking stuffers for my girls from 3 Cords (Haiti Ministry). I’d like to do even more shopping that gives doubly!

    Love your list–im gonna check out each one:) Also check out handandcloth.org — a wonderful organization in Bangladesh helping women. Their tag line reads “blankets handmade by women. Women handmade by God.” my brother bought me a blanket and they are absolutely gorgeous!
