I think it’s a wonderful idea… You see I am just realizing how so many companies out there promote their products by supporting good causes!

It’s wonderful… It makes me feel good to know that I am doing a good deed just by buying from Fair Indigo.  We support organic clothing and a fair trade!  I get what I want at a decent price and know that I am doing something good for someone else…

You don’t even have to do anything extra!  TOMS shoes is another business where you buy a pair of  shoes and another pair is given to a child in need…  It’s a great concept…  You give  back just buying a pair of shoes!!!

You can support small business by avoiding big companies such as Home Depot and Lowes for home projects… even landscaping!  Many of workers are looking for work and extra money!

If they can bring home food and pay for shelter, it helps keep people of the streets!  Even their kids are in better shape because they don’t feel responsible for the families economic difficulty or even the tension that economic stresses bring into the home.

Generally, many small businesses are willing to give back even if they aren’t recognized for their efforts.  Small businesses don’t give back to get attention from the media.  They do it because they care.

Most small businesses enjoy what they do.  They are small enough that they still care about their work and their efforts.  Small businesses are still sensitive to the difficulties of life.  They have not been desensitized due to their growth or from their successes.

So the next time you’re out shopping around or need to buy a gift… Why not try giving a gift and giving back all at the same time?  Look for the those businesses who are willing to do something for a good cause!
