We’ve sorted 36 gifts that give back by Enneagram type, and we are excited to share them with you today. Gifts that give back is like giving two gifts for the price of one, and that is the best kind of investment. In fact, once upon a time, we hosted giant community-wide giveback programs because we loved supporting our community. Now, we get to encourage you to support a worthy cause while still giving a thoughtful gift sorted by Enneagram Types.
Each company we are highlighting today has a mission. Maybe you’re familiar with Tom’s Shoes and Blake Mycoskie’s desire to give shoes to children in poverty and does it using a 1-for-1 model where every pair of shoes bought is a pair of shoes donated. We are also featuring FEED who is able to feed so many children in need based on individual purchases, and Revive Jewelry who’s jewelry pieces and purchases go to support different medical research for diseases with no known cures.
We might have a few companies we are highlighting that you may not have heard of, but we’d encourage you to explore their causes and find one that speaks to your heart and/or to the heart of the recipient.
In addition to picking out 36 gifts that give back to a worthy cause, we’ve also sorted all these gifts by Enneagram Type to help you purchase a gift that will be meaningful to your person. If you haven’t checked out our Handmade Gifts by Enneagram Type, make sure to do that next.
