This year, shopping, traveling, and gathering with loved ones have all become more difficult, if not altogether impossible. Add a flurry of pandemic restrictions to the impact of a global recession and you get a holiday season like none other. If such a bleak forecast leaves you singing the “Bah Humbug” blues, just know that there’s still plenty of holiday spirit to go around. According to a recent survey, 79% of Americans still plan to purchase gifts for the holidays this year and three out of 10 shoppers say they plan to spend on charitable donations.
For your gift giving, consider these goodwill goodies that deliver a double-dose of cheer and delight to everyone on your list. When you give someone you love one of these gifts, you will also be making a financial or in-kind donation to a nonprofit organization that’s dedicated to making the world a better place. Plus, they are all available online, so you can check off your holiday shopping list from the safety of your own home.
