Men, put down your razors! Movember starts November 1st. Of course there are other ways to contribute! Movember has collaborated with some amazing companies like Birchbox, Toms, Harry’s, RPM Fitness, The Giving Keys and Chrome Industries. Birchbox is donating $25,000 to the cause!
November is also Prematurity Awareness Month with the World Prematurity Day on the 17th. Keep an eye out for friends walking and fundraising for the cause. Products that benefit March of Dimes can be found in their online shop.
I know it’s a little early to start Christmas shopping but every year I get my cards from an organization that donates a portion of proceeds if not all proceeds to causes. You can go through a list of organizations that offer holiday cards at Cardsthatgive.org. Buy early to ensure shipping time then your own mailing time.
If you’re cold, they’re cold! Hats for Homeless will send you a box to start collecting hats, gloves, scarves and everything else to keep families in need warm during these brutally cold months.
Let’s keep the warmth going! One Warm Coat provides coats to anyone in need of one. Donate coats, funds or hold a drive or volunteer. Find out all the ways to help at One Warm Coat.
