Helping HandGifts, gifts, gifts! It’s the holiday season and right now, we’re up to our ears in gift guides – guides for her, for him, for kids, for adults, for everyone. Are you looking to give something a little different – something that gets away from the Culture Of Stuff, and in to the culture of Helping? In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, why not do something that will speak to your recipient’s soul? Use your gift-giving funds towards one of the incredibly worthy causes below in honour of your loved one. Then give them the unforgettable gift of an hour of your time over a cup of coffee too. Warm caffeine and changing the world: Can’t beat that mix. Check out the ecochick picks for your giving dollars below.
