Winter Holiday Gifts
If this time of the year is quickly rattling your hard earned quiet inner balance, you are not alone. Many of us become unwoven and weary from the pressure of holiday gift giving. Even though we promise ourselves that this year we will be kinder, and gentler to ourselves, it is no surprise that we may slip just a bit from our mark, as we wander aimlessly through another mall.
If you are in the midst of the last minute “original” gift idea for your yoga friends or family, here are some options for you to consider.
Yoga Journal has a special advertisement in their December issue with a list of yoga related items that when purchased, Yoga Journal will donate a portion of the proceeds to Yoga Hope. This is an organization that provides yoga programs at substance abuse recovery, homeless women and victims of domestic violence.
Do your online shopping at IGive.com where you can select a charitable organization to receive a monetary portion of your purchase.
Animal rescue conscious? Go to The Animal Rescue Site where each click provides .6 bowls of food to rescued animals. They also have several charitable portals such as for Breast Cancer, Literacy, Rainforest and Hunger where your purchase generates additional funds for the organization. Items in their store include Om, and World Peace organic t-shirts among many others.
Check out our Reviews and Resources section for a selection of books, and DVD’s to help with the late night bookstore run.
