How to Give Back While You Shop This Holiday Season

November 22, 2019

This post was sponsored Wonderful Pistachios as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

We’ve all probably been asked whether or not we prefer to give or receive, but someone recently asked me a similar question that gave me pause.

Do you think it’s more important to exchange gifts or donate the money to those in need?

At first I felt a wave of guilt because gift giving is something that I live for — it rounds up the end of my year with smiles and warm fuzzy feelings — but when paired with the option to donate for a cause it felt trivial.

From there I did a bit of digging and found a solution: find products and services that donate a portion of their proceeds to a mission that you’d like to give a push in the right direction.

It really is the best of both worlds!

This goes beyond gift giving too. The products you choose to buy this season can benefit others whether your stocking your pantry or entertaining guests.

Each Christmas our family donates to Toys for Tots.

Toys for Tots collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas.

Sometimes we donate toys, other times money. This year we’ve chosen to purchase Wonderful Pistachios who will be donating $.10/unit for Wonderful Pistachios Roasted & Salted and Wonderful Pistachios Roasted No Salt sold at Walmart up to $100k through December 24th, 2019.

We’ve stocked up on Wonderful Pistachios to stick in stockings, add to appetizer spreads, and keep on hand for snacking! I love that these are a heart-healthy snack that can be incorporated into both baking and cooking. All of the Wonderful Pistachio varieties are also Non-GMO Project Verified, Gluten-Free, Kosher certified, Halal certified, and vegan!

Pick up Wonderful Pistachios at Walmart to help donate to Toys for Tots this holiday season while you’re picking up the rest of your holiday decor, food, and gifts!
