Gifts That Give Back: Making a Difference

Gifts that Give Back | Gifts with Impact

At our core, Luv. is about raising awareness and spreading positivity and of course, love. Our goals are to promote positive change and help work towards solving pressing issues that the world faces today. In terms of funding, in the next 10 years, we hope to have raised 1 million dollars for our chosen charities and their causes. Now this is no easy feat. It is going to take time, a lot of hard work and support: Your support.

Without you, Luv. will not be able to make the positive impact we want to. So with that said, we hope that if ever you are looking for a gift for yourself or others, please think of us. Gifts are something that you need to buy anyways, so why not buy a gift that will have a positive impact on the world? Why not purchase a gift that will not only make the receiver happy, but also makes a difference in another person’s life?

Out of all the major issues affecting the world, choosing to start with children was an obvious one. Children are reliant on adults to protect them and to speak for them and thus are seldom heard; they are society’s most vulnerable. Many children face horrible and terrifying challenges on a daily basis and there is not much they can do about that. Could you imagine being a child and being afraid everyday? Could you imagine being one of these parents and wanting desperately to protect your child, doing everything in your power to do so only to find that it is not enough and that your child is still at risk?

Some of the major issues affecting children globally include:

  • child abuse and neglect
  • lack of access to education
  • child labor
  • child prostitution
  • military use of children and more.

Some of the major issues affecting children in North America include:

  • child poverty
  • child abuse
  • addictions
  • violence in schools
  • cyberbullying and more

We want to do everything in our power to help in anyway we can and we believe that focusing on children is the best way to do it. Children are so resilient, even when faced with these challenges they still smile, love and believe. Because of this, they have the greatest potential to change everything for the best; we simply need to give them the tools and the chance to do so.

With this in mind, we researched charities working to address these issues successfully, efficiently and with transparency. After extensive research, we were able to narrow it down to our top 5:

  • War Child
  • Big Brothers and Sisters of Canada
  • Save the Children
  • UNICEF
  • Feed the Children

These are the charities you can choose from when purchasing a gift from us. 50% of the net profits of your purchase will go to these worthy causes:

  Big Brother Big Sister of Canada - MENTORING YOUTH - GIVING YOUTH A POSITIVE ROLE MODEL IN THEIR LIFE

 WAR CHILD - EDUCATION - OPPORTUNITY - JUSTICE

 Feed the Children - PROVIDES FOOD FOR STARVING CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD

UNICEF: - EDUCATION - CHILD PROTECTION - CHILD SURVIVAL

SAVE THE CHILDREN:  - CHILDREN’S RIGHTS - EDUCATION - HEALTH - FOOD - SECURITY

To recap: Children are the most open to love, they still see the world for what it could be and should be, they are still good and innocent. Children have the power to change everything, if only they had the chance, if only they were given the tools to do so.

Hi Tracey,
Thank you for reaching out.
We would love to have a non-profit organization to be apart of our selected charities! We don’t really have a strict guide, but there needs to be:
-a working website
-a clear mission statement
-independent financial audits (within the past 5 years at least)
-some sort of record of what your organization has accomplished (annual report, media coverage, success stories, etc.)
-have to have some sort of online presence (being an online store, this makes it easier for us to promote each other!)

Hope this helps a bit. If you have any other questions please feel free to reach out anytime: info@createluv.com.

Team Luv.

I volunteer with a non-profit organization and am wondering what your selection process is for non-profits to be among your supported charities?
