Christmas is less than a week away and it’s Christmas shoppers crunch time! I started a little bit early this year, but I still have few things to get on my list. I found the coolest gifts that also allowed me to give back to charity. The organization “Whatever It Takes” raises funds for key global development causes, including poverty alleviation, the protection of children, and environmental conservation. They have teamed up with celebrities in fashion, film, sports, television, music, etc. with artwork designed by Serena Williams, Penelope Cruz, George Clooney, Pink, and Kanye West just to name a few. A variety of fun pieces have been created and all for a great cause.
The jewelry “artwork” is all designed by the celebrities and every item that is purchased is donated to a celebrity’s charity of choice.
I fell in love with these two! The artwork on the watch (L) was designed by Serena Williams and the charm/link bracelet (R) artwork by Penelope Cruz . The bracelet says, “Give Love A Chance”.
You can find them at your local Macy’s (and other stores) and visit their website here to learn more about the organization.
Another great gift idea which I think is perfect, especially for kids, is Toms Shoes! I purchased my sweet, nephews a pair of their very first Toms! I can’t wait to see them on their little feet. For every pair of shoes you buy, they give a new pair of shoes to a child in need — “One For One”.
GROWING UP BAREFOOT
In many developing countries, children must walk barefoot for miles to school, clean water and medical help.
INJURY AND DISEASE
Hundreds of millions of children are at risk of injury, infection and soil-transmitted diseases that most don’t have access to prevent or treat.
EDUCATION AND OPPORTUNITY
Children who are healthy are more likely to be successful students, and access to education is a critical determinant of long-term success.
A BETTER TOMORROW
Healthy, educated children have a better chance of improving the future of their entire community.

Happy Shopping & Merry Christmas!!!
