Like most people, I like to think I am making a difference. Sometimes it can seem so overwhelming, that the need is just too great. The thing I try to keep in mind is that if I have helped one person, if the small thing I have done has changed the life of one person, it was worth it.
Sometimes making a difference requires sacrifice (like the time and gas it took to deliver over 200 pair of shoes to Soles4Souls in Nashville after the earthquake in Haiti). Other times you can make a difference just by doing something you would do anyway- like buying clothes for your kids.
Olive Juice Kids recently partnered with Clothes4Souls. With every item purchased at their new site Olive Juice Gives they will give one item of clothing to Clothes4Souls to be distributed to children in need. I love this because it's an item for item donation- each piece of clothing you buy is really two, one for your child and one for a child in need.
Olive Juice Kids makes cute, wearable clothes for girls, boys and babies. My absolute favorite is the Georgia dress… I've never really had the urge to dress my girls to match, but this dress may just be the perfect dress for family photos…
While you are preparing you kids for back to school, family photos or cute holiday outfits why not get and give? I always enjoy shopping I can feel good about…
Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Olive Juice Kids to help clothe the approximately 300 million children in the world who don't have adequate clothing. As compensation for this post I was allowed to choose an item from the Olive Juice Gives catalog. Thoughts on shopping and giving are my own.
