From One-For-One Kids' Clothes to Activism-Encouraging Friendship Bracelets

With the holidays right around the corner, many are starting to think about what they can give their loved ones, including charitable gifts. This time of year many people choose to give back to the less fortunate in addition to giving presents to their loved ones, sometimes at the same time.

Whether you are looking for charities doing important work you can donate your finances or time to, or ways you can give a meaningful present in the form of charitable gifts, there are many ways to do so.

You can choose a social enterprise with a one-for-one model, such as one-for-one backpacks. You could support a crowdfunding campaign that is caused-based, like recycled fishnet skateboards. Or if you are planning on taking a trip over the holiday break, you might consider family-based service trips.

You could use any of these campaigns as inspiration to get more involved as well.
