Day 49: Give & Shine

Share Happiness!

As part of National Philanthropy Week on 365give, I have been searching out retailers or products that are doing their own form of GIVING every day. If I’m going to shop, why not

make a difference along the way?

Give & Shine

Day 49 / GIVE 49

This weekend I am participating in a charity event called the Chef Challenge for a Cure to raise money for the research of womens cancers. I needed a new t-shirt to make a special 365give shirt for the up coming event.

I didn’t want to spend a lot of money but I wanted a shirt with style. I had been shopping with my son at the weekend and notice that the retailer Jacob had a special promotion going on right now called “Give & Shine.” Their tag line is “Give your clothes a new lease on life”

All I had to do is take in an old piece of women’s clothing and I would receive a 25% discount off any new purchase. The clothes I bring in are donated to Goodwill and I received this discount on my purchase.

I love the name of this promotion as giving does make me shine. I get that warm fuzzy feeling every day I do a GIVE, even the smallest thing makes me feel good.

You can also go onto their Facebook Page and hit their “like” button they will donate a piece of clothing to Goodwill. This is an easy double GIVE. I donate a piece clothing, they donate a piece of clothing and everyone benefits.

I have come to realized that GIVING is trendy. It is the thing to do – so get on board adn find your own way to GIVE!

Let the holiday shopping begin and let us know how you shop and give all at the same time.

My dream is to inspire people around the world – young and old – to make a better, happier world for everyone. As a family we have come to learn through our own daily giving practice that if we all do one small thing to give every day – together we will be the change the world needs.
