Week of Giving: Goodshop Makes Charitable Donation Easy In Time For Holiday Season

Article Contributed by Aaron Hendrick

During this joyful time, I always set aside a little something to give back to my community. Call it what you want, (Tradition? A loving heart? Guilt?) but each year, it’s important that I try to make a tiny difference in the lives of others around Christmas-time. This is more than commonplace every year, as charitable giving worldwide notoriously sees a spike during the holidays. Many folks choose a charity they love to donate their money and, often more importantly, their time.

For example, my husband and I give to the Trevor Project, providing a lifeline to LGBT youth all over our country. But there’s only so much time and money we can give. I was sharing this struggle with a friend of mine and her suggestion completely blew my mind. “Have you tried Goodshop?”
