The Power of the Pocketbook - Giving for the Greater Good

Tis the season of giving…and spending! You, my friend, can create change through your gift giving. You have tremendous power in your pocketbook. By choosing products and services from social enterprises or businesses that support nonprofits you are choosing to help change the world - one gift at a time! By aligning with social impact businesses, you encourage other businesses to consider their social responsibility. You truly can drive change by who you choose to purchase from.

Did you know...

  • Nearly 9 in 10 Americans (89%) would switch brands to one that is associated with a good cause, given similar price and quality
  • A majority (79%) of consumers continue to seek out products that are socially or environmentally responsible.

This is a band-wagon you want to jump on!

I’ve put together a few examples of organizations that I support and who are supporting our vibrant nonprofit industry. Consider EXPANDING your gift giving this year and giving for the greater good!

P.S. A donation to a friend or family member's favorite cause in their name is a WONDERFUL gift!
