‘Tis the season of giving thanks and reflecting on everything that we are grateful for. This month, how about pampering thyself by pampering others? Research shows that we get a huge boost by helping others in need, so go get a smile on your face and donate, volunteer, and make your purchases from a company that is giving back.
NLT: To prepare for Black Friday, know in advance what stores or brands make charitable donations that you find meaningful to you. Toms donates a pair of shoes for each pair purchased. Macy’s has made several charitable donations with an environmental impact. You can donate your shoes to Soles4Souls which Puma often teams up with. West Elm has partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. These are just a few—do your homework before you do your shopping and make your purchases pamper others!
