Glad to be Giving - Where Your Gifts Give Twice
“I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.” ― Maya Angelou
Why give just once, when you can give twice?
What if you could buy a gift for yourself or someone else and contribute at the same time? You already know you can do that with other products – TOMS shoes, Bombas Socks (Bee better), and several other businesses whose aim is to sell good things and do good.
75 Million Pairs of Shoes and Counting
TOMS shoes has given away over 75 million shoes to date, and has impacted millions of lives. They have changed up their business model over time in response to the needs they have discovered, now providing sight restoration, water systems, assistance with maternal health, and bullying prevention.
Bombas socks have given over 7 million pairs of socks to homeless shelters, on a buy one give one model similar to TOMS shoes.
These are just two examples of ways people have helped others through their purchases.
We are joining that small group of businesses that are more than about simply providing a product, and we are asking you to join us too. When you give one of our gifts, you give a beautiful, artisan made item to a friend, family, loved one, or yourself, but you also give to others. We are dedicating 25% of our profits to victims of human trafficking.
The money raised for the cause of eradicating human trafficking through Glad to be Giving will go to verified organizations working to end human trafficking victims' suffering.
The Scourge of Human Trafficking
Young children. Girls. Boys. Women. Men. Human trafficking is a horror that affects millions across the globe. People reduced to objects to buy and sell. Stripped of their humanity.
Maybe a one for one business model isn't the model to eradicate human trafficking, but surely we can make a difference through a thoughtful gift purchase with a larger mission. What if we could help in the worldwide struggle to end human trafficking? What if we could help rescue victims and help them on a path to a better life?
That is our goal at Glad to be Giving. To give hope. Hope for a better life. Hope for dignity.
