Giving Thanks and Goodshop Sunday

IMG_438744091(1)That amazing time of the year is upon us. Yes, the holidays! Besides amazing food, good times, and sharing with family and friends; Thanksgiving is an opportunity to reflect on the many blessing received during the year and to be appreciative of the simple things in life.


Thanks to our partnership with For World Wide Smiles this year, we were able to provide one hundred books with crayons to children in Haiti as part of FWWS mission to provide dental health care, disease prevention & supplies to those with needs in underserved populations. They continue to work very hard to acquire portable dental units, as well as the logistics to bring good oral health to remote locations.


If you are like us, you will probably have more blessings than struggles in your life and that is one of the reasons giving is a natural part of you. Giving doesn’t only include charities, it also includes people we love. Fortunately this year, Yahoo and many organizations have partnered to make shopping for our loved ones a good cause.


Goodsearch is a search engine that will donate money towards a common cause –in this case For World Wide Smiles if you choose to– every time you search the web, shop online, or dine out. And wait, there is also an app for that!


This coming Nov 30th, there will be a Goodshop Sunday so spread the word to family & friends! Thousands of retailers (including Amazon, Target, Apple, Macys and more) will be posting their best coupons & deals on Goodshop and a percentage of virtually every purchase will be donated to the organization of your choice at no additional cost! No need to wait for CyberMonday if going to the malls is not your thing on Black Friday.


There are always more than one way to help others. May your holiday season be extra special and may your holidays be merry and bright. Happy Thanksgiving!
