Every Christmas as I am asked over and over what I want for Christmas, I can’t help but feel a twinge of guilt knowing how lucky I am to be able to give and receive gifts from my friends and family. Often I am left wondering what I really need, and many times I have difficulty thinking of anything. Here are five organizations whose products are helping others, so every time you buy from them, you are giving them hope, a job, a voice, a reason to keep fighting. These organizations all believe in helping others, and when you purchase from one of these organizations you are enabling them to do so. These companies have products for everyone, clothing, accessories, jewelry, men’s apparel, audio, and more. Take a look through my brief description of each one, and click the links to learn more and shop.
