GIVINGTON’S

I recently was shown a super cool website that makes shopping for things you will already be buying even better.  Givington’s is a new online retailer and their premise is simple.  They offer the products you are already going to buy, at the price you would pay across the web, and give to the cause of YOUR CHOICE with every purchase.  Up to 50% of the profit from each sale goes to a non-profit cause you choose.  How cool is that?  You get to choose where the money goes.  I love it!

On their site you can get coffee, tea, books, clothes and jewelry.  This would be such a great site to get all of your teacher gifts in one spot and give back to your favorite organization at the same time!

Givington’s is giving away this set to THREE lucky people!  Yippee!

OPEN ARMS

webmakeitcount-spirit There is a super cool organization right here in Austin that makes the cutest skirts and scarves from old t shirts.  First of all, what is the most comfortable thing you own?  Yes, your old t shirts, so imagine those becoming a skirt or a scarf.  THE BEST.  What I love most about Open Arms is that they are healping refugee women here in Austin work and create a living for themselves.  Can you imagine being forced out of your country, not being able to return, landing in a foreign land, and then having to work for next to nothing because you don’t know the language or have an eduction. OPEN ARMS IS CHANGING THAT. Check out some of their amazing products:
