Hi Friends!

Each year around the holidays, Erika and I highlight companies who have a product or service that give back. As much as we preach about experiences over gifts, there is something to be said about unwrapping a surprise treat, or better yet, giving one!

We have compiled a list of 10 different companies with one thing in common:

SUPPORTING THOSE IN NEED.

Our diverse list include companies who help bring people out of poverty through job creation and rehabilitation, to companies donating products or profits to help fund environmental issue- one thing is certain: these companies are worth supporting this holiday season.

I encourage you to listen to HOW and WHY we chose each one, LEARN about each of their stories, and SUPPORT them during this holiday season.

Whether your budget is $5 or $500 there is there is something on our list for everyone!

If we are going to shop, the least we can do is shop with a cause!

***Please note that this is purely our editorial opinions and we have not been compensated in any way by any of these companies. In addition to shopping their sites this holiday season, we would love for you to give them a shout-out on IG and tag us @simplyborganized with the #thisorganizedlifepodcast
