Giving a smile, giving time, giving attention, giving compliments, giving a thoughtful gift, giving lovely words. It can be a drop of positivity and love in the big ocean of this sick, cruel and fallen world (just listen to the 8 o’clock news to know the latter is true).
If you want to buy a nice gift for someone in this period of Lent, why not support handmade artists and small shops and even better: products that share part of their profit with charity.
Today I bought a lovely hand crocheted stuffed rabbit named Sofie from a lovely Dutch webshop founded by 3 sisters and their mother: Okkadootjes, who donate half the money to a charity called Mercy Ships.
Isn’t she cute?! 🙂 this rabbit makes me smile!
For my American readers: A very sweet initiative by Lauren Rowe who knits coffee cup cozies for different charities and sells them via Etsy.
Just a nice practical way of double gift giving.
And triple, if the above is true: giving might heal yourself too.
