I recently posted my new embroidered business card holder on Instagram and Do Good Gift Guides commented. I checked out their profile and was excited to see that they share shops who ‘give back.’ I have known since I first wanted my own business that I would always give a portion of my sales to charitable organizations that are near and dear to my heart. I’m excited to be connected with them, and happy to share their business with everyone! While I do give to charitable organizations throughout the year, I have a category of Items for a Cause, and I donate a portion of sales to specific charities. The charity is mentioned in the specific listing. I also have partnered with people doing fundraising and will give a portion of sales during their fundraising to help them meet their goal.

If you like to associate with businesses that believe in giving back, you need this information!

What inspires you?

I’m inspired by people and businesses that do good by giving back.

What inspired you to start your business?

The idea behind my website started when I was looking for a ring as a remembrance for my dog, Trouble, who had recently passed away. I discovered a company that donates a percent of every sale to support animals. The purchase of my new ring keeps Trouble close at heart and fed 10 shelter dogs… It was a win-win!

Over the next few weeks I discovered dozens of other businesses that put the good of society above their own profitability. I’ve since made it my mission to enable people to find, follow, and support these purpose-driven companies and their causes.

Does a particular product or service really resonate with you?  And, why?

Mostly those that protect the planet and animals. I’m an environmentalist and animal lover at heart.

If you wake up in the morning and don’t have the desire to work on something you know you need to finish, what makes you forge ahead?
