This time of year is considered the season of giving and it got me thinking about how I can give gifts to my loved ones, and ALSO give back to businesses doing good.
After doing a little research, I thought that my findings might be useful for my Smart Life community, so decided to compile a list of gift ideas for this holiday season. The gifts themselves, are truly beautiful items, but the added bonus is that the proceeds from that gift go back to a charitable organization. I love this idea of double gifting – I hope you do too.
The new Give the Smart Life for 2023 Gift Card can be used towards Private Cooking Classes, Food Shopping Tours and Private Coaching. Why not give the gift of Smart Life? We will donate 10% of all holiday purchases to Books for Kids. One thing I’ve loved doing more of in my business these past few years is giving back. Proceeds from many of my sales already go to Books for Kids, of whom I am a huge supporter and ambassador. Books for Kids is a library and literacy nonprofit organization that works to ensure that every child, from birth to kindergarten, is surrounded by books, has adults who read with them every day, and has access to high-quality early education.
