SACRAMENTO, CA, November 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Whether you're trying to put more meaning into your holiday gift giving, or you just want to put an extra big smile on the faces (and hearts) of those you're giving to, you can accomplish both of those goals by giving "gifts that give back": items that when purchased, also provide products, assistance, or charity to others in need. And now that's easy to do at iShopWithPurpose.com
- a new online resource that helps people find socially conscious companies that they feel a connection with, so they can choose where to shop by first
knowing what that company is doing to make the world a better place
, whether during the holiday season, or anytime.
All of the companies featured on iShopWithPurpose.com
have a unique mission to do good
in addition to offering excellent products. Everyone is sure to find a cause they'd like to support, ranging from providing children in need with fresh water, boots, or dental care, to planting thousands of trees, to upcycling some surprising materials, to donating generous amounts of money to a wide selection of charities, and many more.
Many different types of corporate social responsibility are represented on the website, including the buy one - give one model (made famous by Tom's shoes), eco-consciousness, recycled/upcycled products, fair trade, artisan partnerships, and a percentage of sales donated to charities. It's quite amazing that you can buy almost anything - clothes, jewelry, toys, books, coffee, home decor - even dog toys and toothbrushes - and your purchase can literally help change the world, without you doing anything other than choosing the right company to buy from.
Each company's page on iShopWithPurpose.com
showcases its purpose, or mission, with a short video, and also provides a summary of their story and a preview of the products they offer. When you find a purpose you connect with, you simply click through to that company's website to put your money where your heart is!
Most items come with a card that explains the company's mission that you can include with the gift. Don't be surprised when the recipient is overjoyed to know that they aren't the only one benefiting from receiving their present.
The 2017 Cone Communications Corporate Social Responsibility Study found that "87% of Americans will purchase a product because a company advocated for an issue they cared about." If that's true, then there's a good chance that you'll want to shop on the websites of the companies that you'll find at iShopWithPurpose.com
. And even if you don't end up buying anything from these companies, just spending a few minutes learning about the amazing things they're accomplishing around the world will certainly give you an extra dose of holiday cheer.
