Giving (well)

I love gift giving. While I may put too much pressure on trying to find the ‘perfect‘ gift for the friend or family member, I do think it is important to give well.

That is why I love when my gifts can have a loving message attached. One of my favorite ways to do this is by giving a gift that helps another person or cause.

Therefore, it is time for me to share that  Serrv has a new US based partner!

“By offering transitional employment through its natural candle product line, Dreambean Candles, Bright Endeavors provides each participant with the guidance and training needed to develop a successful work history in an environment that fosters teamwork, professional communication and on-going learning.

Bright Endeavors is a nonprofit social enterprise committed to helping inner city, homeless and at-risk young women, between the ages of 16 – 25, gain the necessary skills to become self-sufficient, successful adults.

At Bright Endeavors, the women make Dreambean Candles using eco-friendly soy and palm wax. The purchase of soy candles benefits U.S. farmers too!”

You can order these products online, or often find many wonderful SERRV products in your local Ten Thousand villages store. Ten Thousand Villages is celebrating it’s 65th Anniversary, and is widely recognized as the oldest Fair Trade Organization in the world!

When you give a gift this holiday season, think about one that gives twice!
