Remember that episode of Seinfeld when a friend gives George a card that says “A donation has been made in your name to the Children’s Alliance” and George replies, “I got him Yankee tickets and he got me a piece of paper saying I gave your gift to someone else?!?” (If not, click here for the fun!)
Poor George really wanted a gift for himself – the gift of giving just didn’t satisfy him. But there are actually a lot of gifts you can give this holiday season that support needy causes AND provide something tangible for the recipient to enjoy. We found a great article that has links to numerous companies that sell gifts that give back. Whether you’re in the market for wine, shoes, jewelry (and more), it’s a great place to start.

We are also happy to introduce you to Lambs Farm, a non-profit organization that sells delicious (we know this from personal taste bud bliss) and affordable treats – cookie baskets, peanut brittle, peppermint bark, and triple berry jam! But more importantly, they empower people with developmental disabilities to lead personally fulfilling lives through programs, jobs, and on-site housing. We’ve worked with this company for more than 20 years and love what they’re doing. If you’d like more information, click here or contact Amy Barry at 847-990-3797.
