So, what's Gifts for Givers?
Gifts for Givers has been on our minds for many years! Support, collaboration and community are hugely important to us and at the core of our mission. We support other reputable organizations through means of fundraising, volunteering, networking etc.,
but what about support relating to mental health?
The items in our boxes are thoughtfully selected to encourage acts of self-care in the lives of local animal welfare advocates. Through collaboration with individuals and businesses who are also passionate about supporting our animal rescue/welfare community, we can drop a little slice of self-care right into the lives of these deserving individuals.
For more information on this initiative and how to get involved, check out the graphics below!
Our first box of 2022!
Take a peak into our first box of 2022... the theme was "cozy self care".
Epic Blend Lip Balm
Epic Blend generously donated each Lip Balm. Not only do these Lip Balm's make dry or chapped lips literally melt away, they are also all natural and full of wonderful ingredients! Guilt free, luscious lips! Find them at https://www.epicblend.com/
Big Heart Tea Co. Herbal Tea
Big Heart Tea Co? We were sold at the name to be honest! After seeing their adorable packaging and brewing a cup for ourselves, we were absolutely sure we wanted to share these beautiful teas with our community. https://bighearttea.com/
Revive EO Peppermint Roll-on
When we reached out to Revive to let them know of this initiative, they immediately jumped on board and donated a generous credit which we used towards our holy grail... the Peppermint Roll-on!! We love having the roll-on with us on-the-go, and recommend rolling the oils throughout your hairline and up the base of your neck. *Heaven* https://www.revive-eo.com/
Cozy Fuzzy Socks
You know what makes curling up on the coach a whole lot better? A furry friend and some fuzzy dog-themed socks.
Big Moods Stickers
Big Moods designs and creates super cute stickers with wonderful messaging. They have lots of designs for animal lovers, for mental health awareness and other important topics too. A portion of all of their sales goes to ActiveMinds.org, impacting Mental Health education, research, advocacy, and creating a lasting change in the way mental health is talked about and treated in society. https://bigmoods.com/
Crystal Infused Soy Tealight Candles
Each tealight was hand poured by the WCAA team (while working like ninjas to keep all of the pet hair out!), containing an assortment of crystals, a clean-burning soy blend and organic essential oils.
