The holidays are a time for many things but an overarching theme is shopping. Shopping for loved ones, shopping for friends, shopping for ourselves. The reason for the season is giving gifts as an expression of gratitude for the ultimate gift of love that was given to the world so many years ago.
While we are doing all this shopping and giving, there are people in need all around the country, and the world who could use some giving as well. While it is great to donate to charities during the Holiday season, there is also a way to shop great gifts and donate money at the same time.
The American Diabetes Association- Gift of Hope program is an annual Holiday Gift catalog that sees all the funds go to support the mission. The money raised is used to fund research needed to prevent, cure, and manage diabetes.
The catalog features great, quality gifts to choose from. Everything from cookware, sleepwear and everything in between. Buy gifts for others, and even purchase Holiday décor such as these beautiful tree ornaments for your own home.
There is something for everyone in the American Diabetes Association- Gift of Hope program Holiday Gift catalog. Whether you’re looking for the perfect stocking-stuffer, or a grand gift from the heart, this year’s featured items are great for people of all ages and interests. The best part is that each purchase helps make a diabetes patient’s life a little brighter.
So many people suffer from diabetes and would benefit from the research. There are also many people who benefit from the ADA’s services that include educating recently diagnosed patients, and giving a voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. While we’re in the season of giving, take a moment to browse the American Diabetes Association-Gift of Hope program and help make a positive impact this Holiday.
