As the theme of this week would imply, we’ve been all about keeping cozy around here. So, naturally, our “Giving” feature of the week is all about taking those cozy vibes and extending them to those in need. Here are a few ways to spread a little cozy cheer this holiday season:
WAYS TO GIVE BACK
Donate warm weather items (blankets, sweaters, coats, hats, gloves, scarves, socks, etc.) to a local homeless shelter.
Bring gently used towels and sheets to an animal shelter.
Pay the heating bill for someone who might be struggling to afford it.
Bring a pot of homemade soup to an elderly neighbor, a new mom or a family with a loved one stationed abroad.
Volunteer to cook and serve a hot meal at a local soup kitchen.
BRANDS THAT GIVE BACK
I first discovered Sackcloth & Ashes while shopping at my local World Market. Their blanket styles and colors immediately caught my eye, but what really grabbed my attention was their story and their do-good initiative- for every blanket purchased, they give a blanket to a local homeless shelter. So, not only do you get to be cozy, but you also get to help someone in need be cozy. It’s a win-win situation.
