How your cause can compete with Santa this holiday
Although Santa’s gifts seem to take the spotlight, many don’t realize it’s one of the best times to shout out what you care about. There are many ways of creating awareness during the holidays.
Ask for a donation to your favorite nonprofit on your Christmas list.
Most of us don’t need more stuff, but people still want to give you a gift during the holidays. Consider putting a link to your favorite nonprofit, asking for a donation given in your name.

Use the embroidered ribbon stick-ons
There are infinite uses for the embroidered ribbon stick-ons during the holidays. Whether you want to wrap a present, make an ornament, or simply wear them to the mall or Christmas market to start conversations, the possibilities are endless. Each ribbon has adhesive on the back that stays all day. With 25 in a pack, there are plenty for all your creative ideas.
Run a social media fundraiser
The holiday season is the time for year-end giving. Try posting a link on social media directly to the nonprofit you want to fundraise for. Let people know to put the donation as a tribute in your name so you can keep track and post updates as you get closer and closer to your goal. People are looking for end-of-the-year giving opportunities.
