Gifts That Give Twice Add Special Meaning to The Holidays

Shopping for gifts around the holidays can prove to be a tiresome task and even a frustrating one. If you are one of those who have a long list of people to buy gifts for – the task can be a tedious one, especially when you have to do it every year. In some cases, it is impossible if not mindboggling and stressful to buy gifts for some people on your list.

So instead, why not give gifts that will make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate? Not only does it make the season more meaningful – it is also a great way of showing people how much you care. Exchanging the usual, run-of-the-mill gifts with charitable donations will be much appreciated by friends and family – and might even encourage them to follow your example.

Last year, Mercy Corps, an international humanitarian organization introduced ‘Mercy Kits’. An innovative gift – the kit presents a unique method of gift giving while also providing much-needed assistance to the impoverished. In a sense, the ‘Mercy Kit’ is a gift that gives twice.
Matthew De Galan, Chief Development Officer, Mercy Corps said, “Around the holidays, many people examine their values and look for ways to express those ideals in the gifts they give. Mercy Kits are gifts that truly make a difference in a needy person’s life, and offering them online makes holiday gift giving more convenient for shoppers.”

The idea of a gift that gives twice was quite an attraction to holiday shoppers and is a great way to escape the overly commercialized holidays.
