Robin’s Socially Conscious Gift Guide!

Give Gifts That Give Back

Those of you who know me know my passion for giving.   The good news is you can be a philanthropist even if you don’t feel like you have money to give.  You can give your time, your social media support as well as buying products that give back to the causes you really care about, like clean water, poverty or human trafficking  to name a few.   Below are few ideas I curated around the internet.  Happy Shopping! x0black_rosa_1The purchase of this rugged black clutch from FEED provides 50 lunches to school kids around the world.  Beautiful, useful and it gives back.  I’d call that a perfect gift!  You can find it here.
