Buy a Gift that Supports Alaskans this Holiday
Wondering what to get your loved ones for the holidays? This time of year is full of fun activities, decorations, gifts... but also stress, and a level of materialism that makes me feel a little sick. Gift buying is about giving joy, right? It shouldn't be about the obligation.
So why do we often feel like we are just buying junk to fulfill some expectation of "the holidays". For me, I want to give gifts that I know people will truly love and that come from companies I believe in. Businesses that are producing things that contribute beauty and function to the world, not just plastic stuff made in faceless factories overseas.
That is why this gift guide from Sourced AK is special. It features all Alaskan small businesses trying to help you find the right gift this holiday. A gift that reminds you of someone special, something they will really appreciate. And the bonus? You get to give twice, the gift to your loved one and your support to a small business that is working hard to earn your dollar, someone trying to pursue their dreams.
So, come check out the gift guide here. Let's make a promise this year to resist the temptation to buy all the "stuff". Instead, let's take our hard earned money and spend it on things that will really make their eyes sparkle, things that will make a difference in their lives and in the lives of small business owners around our state.
As I write this, I am reminded of this famous Gandhi quote:
"You must be the change you wish to se in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi
