NOVEMBER 2018 UPDATE: Gift list is still active! Shop and share!
In 2016, we felt called to create a social justice gift blog post, and we were happy to hear our followers found it both helpful and meaningful. Continuing the focus on compassion during the holidays, we decided to create another list in 2017, this time featuring ideas of gifts for children and using Amazon affiliate links to raise money for people in need (which was Puerto Rico at that time). This gift list is still active, and any proceeds will continue to go to our choice of charities throughout the year.
JANUARY 2018 UPDATE: Thank you for helping us raise $225 for Puerto Rico through the holiday season!
Welcome to our holiday gifts for kids list!
We are using Amazon affiliate links for this list to raise funds for our neighbors in Puerto Rico--50% of whom are still without power and many without homes or jobs--in the aftermath of devastating Hurricane Maria and subsequent storms this year. For each purchase you make using the links in this list--as well as most other items purchased in the same transaction--we will receive a small portion of the sale from Amazon and we will designate it for our donation. We invite you to utilize this list in your holiday shopping to help us raise funds for our organization of choice: Hispanic Federation's UNIDOS Disaster Relief and Recovery Program.
These gift ideas were personally selected by us based on a combination of factors: favorite items of our own three children, recommendations from friends, and bestsellers. Each item we feature also has excellent reviews. We aimed to encompass a wide range of ages, interests, and prices. We encourage you to share this in your circles! Note, current sale prices aren't always reflected in the list, so it's worth clicking if you are interested in an item.
Thank you for helping us give back and support those less fortunate this holiday season!
