Buying all your gifts in a department store is so passé

The most fulfilling gift you can ever be a part of is the one where you are on the giving end. From helping sustainable products go into production to spreading awareness for a worthy cause, we have a good selection of fundraisers to donate to this holiday season while keeping the greater good in mind.

Ecoqube

A home product that touches on nearly every aspect of sustainability, the EcoQube is a garden and aquarium in one. Using aquaponics, this desk sized ecosystem is low maintenance as well a mini education in nature.

A Better Backpack

There's been a recent mini rebellion towards fast fashion. Locals are starting to support local designers and brands that tout quality over quantity. We fully support this logic as peaceful dumplings and believe the more sustainable, the better! Mijlo has already surpassed it's fundraising goal to put a durable, cotton backpack into production, but there's still time for you to become a part of the revolution. It's a great chance to invest in an accessory that will do more good than harm to planet. It also comes with a promise to be recycled if you ever send it back with a 10% rebate.

YouCaring is full of inspiring causes you can donate to. They don't take a cut of the funds raised so all of your money really is going straight to the source. Support someone's cancer battle, a dog's medical bills or a college fund in memory of a loved one. They are more than appreciative.

Don't have the spare cash to donate?

That's okay. Everyone can understand how important budgeting is during the holidays, but the people behind these causes are more than grateful for even a Twitter or Facebook share. Doing good isn't limited to how much money, it's measured in compassion and kindness. So go forth, peaceful dumplings, and make someone's day!
