Gift Idea: Hostess Gifts that Give

A few weeks ago my friend Justice Fergie wrote a great post about hostess gifts for her Happy Holiday Countdown. I commented that I love giving hostess gifts because it gives me an excuse to buy extra cute little items when I'm shopping. (You know, for my stash!)

But then a little later, I heard from Share our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign about their really beautiful holiday cards.

On the back, they have a message that lets the recipient know that a donation has been made to Share our Strength to provide healthy food for kids who are hungry.

Wouldn't one of these be a fabulous hostess gift? There's room on the card for a personal note and I know that if I received one of these with a heartfelt message from a friend along the lines of, "Thank you for your wonderful hospitality this holiday season. In your honor I've made a gift to Share our Strength to help more families are happy and healthy this year!" -- I'd be absolutely thrilled.

For a suggested donation of just $45 you could have five of these cards on hand this December.

Here's a little bit more about why No Child Hungry is so important:

  1. Hi, Aimee--

    This is a wonderful idea-- thank you for sharing. I make an effort to make donations to charity instead of giving gifts for holidays, and I really appreciate "receiving" gifts like that, too! I'm a teacher, and respectfully ask parents to make donations to children's charities, if they feel inclined to purchase something for me. It warms my heart, and sends a powerful message to students, too!!

    I will certainly spread the word about "No Child Hungry."

    Love, Candygirlflies

    ps. Thank you for your very kind comment on my blog post about Tekker. I really, really appreciated it.


Comments make my day. Thanks!
