If you’re like me, stocking stuffers are usually gathered piece by piece and for each individual family member at different times during November or early December OR last minute depending on how busy I am that year. In this case this year, it’s last minute.
I actually do like to put some thought into what goes into those stockings and make sure it’s not just going to be filled with useless items they will never use or tons of sugary (quick and convenient) purchases.
This year for stocking stuffers for the adults (mostly for women including myself – yes of course I gift myself some stocking stuffers!) and for hostess and mini gifts for loved ones, I decided to go with festive and wonderfully-scented products from The Body Shop.
And for good reason aside from the their amazing product line. This time, these gifts are helping a child in need.
This holiday season, The Body Shop is teaming up with War Child, the global charity for children affected by war, to grant children the wish of education.
For every specially selected gift purchased, The Body Shop will make a contribution of approximately 7 cents to War Child that funds a class for a child — one gift = one class.
The Body Shop is aiming to provide over 6 million classes this Holiday season
How fantastic is that?
Knowing that for every specially selected Christmas gift I purchase, I can be sending a child to school!
Here I was… stressing over last-minute gifts and stocking stuffers, letting the chaos of financial strain completely take over my Christmas excitement. What to cook, bake, serve holiday guests and what to wear for holiday parties.
This just bringing me back down to the realities of the world around me, reminding me of those much less fortunate than I, humbling and softening my heart.
