Gifts that Give Back

Just because a company is donating a portion of the profits to charity doesn’t mean you should rush out and buy their products. However, if you’re going to be giving gifts this season anyway, it’s an added bonus if the ones you are giving also support a good cause.

To help you add a charitable element to your holiday shopping list, we’ve rounded up our favorite 10 gifts that give back. Take a look, you just might be able to cross a few names off your list.

As part of our charity blog for November, we wanted to find a way for the Real Simple community to give back to some of the people affected by Hurricane Sandy. So, starting with this post, we’ll be donating $1 for every Facebook share, Facebook like, and Tweet (up to $1,000) on the posts tagged charity. The donations will go to Donor’s Choose projects that have been started to help classrooms affected by the storm.

You can find out more about Donor’s Choose here, and we’ll let you know when we’ve reached our $1,000 goal. So, start sharing and help us get these classes back in session.
