“Just” Holiday Shopping

Finals are finally over.  Aced, of course.   You’re finally getting in the Christmas spirit—and not just for an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party.

“What are you up to?”  asks your friend as she sees you scrolling through your phone.

“Just holiday shopping,” you say.

Just shopping?  Little does your friend know, you’re referring to holiday shopping that does JUSTICE!  Here are 3 awesome options to do justice by doing something you already have to do anyway.

1. CRS Gift Catalog: These gifts represent nearly 1,500 CRS projects that transform people and communities for the long term, such as:

a. Training for a microfinance group member ($30).
b. Health exams for 12 children ($25).
c. Student uniform for school ($20).

2. Amazon Smile: You can buy anything you would normally purchase through Amazon (which is pretty much everything, right?), and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price to CRS.  Basically, there’s no reason not to do it!


3. CRS Fair Trade Gifts: CRS partners with SERRV to offer Gifts of Hope for the holidays.  Shop online and find beautiful crafts as well as chocolate and coffee to give to loved ones.
