Consume consume consume. Honestly, I think it is overstated that the holidays are a time where consumption is king. Overstated in the way that it offers an out to the spending madness because "everyone is doing it, right?" Wrongo. Let's shift that culture and frame of thinking, why don't we?
The beautiful people @preemptivelove have put together an even more beautiful gift guide for this holiday season.
Empowerment starts with listening. Displaced families know better than we do what they need to rebuild their lives. We seek to empower them in ways that honor their vision for the future and complement the skills they already possess. We also believe in honoring your generosity, as you share your heart for remaking the world with us. That’s why we make every effort to use your gift for the purpose or item you indicate. If we receive additional donations beyond what’s needed for a specific area, we will use the excess amount to empower refugees where needed most."
You can find the online version here. There is something so beautiful about taking the concept of gift giving and recognizing that your giving can be multiplied in extended measures with an easy, but intentional, small swap of shop. Happy gift giving!
