CHICAGO, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This holiday season, the acclaimed nonprofit, Benevolent (at www.benevolent.net), is launching a Gifts That Give Back campaign that gives gift givers new tools to simultaneously honor loved ones and make a difference.
"Benevolent is different from many charities because we invite you to step into ONE person's story and help that individual overcome a challenge," says Megan Kashner, CEO and Founder of Benevolent. "Benevolent's focus is on helping low-income Americans reach their goals of stability. With our Benevolent Gifts That Give Back, we hope you'll share your giving experience with your family and friends."
In the midst of the chaos of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the like, Benevolent offers a chance to step away from commercialism and choose from a number of generosity-inspired Gifts That Give Back, including Benevolent Giving Cards. Benevolent will send your Giving Card with a personal note to the individual of your choice via email or snail mail. Cardholders can choose the person they want to support on the Benevolent site. This could be your conscientious gift choice that would stand out in the flurry of the holiday season.
Benevolent is also offering gift-giving options in its clothing and gear line with punchy generosity-themed slogans like: "Be Awesome, Be Disruptive, Benevolent." Gear from The Benevolent Store invites you to Get Your GOOD On with messages of giving, striving and individuality printed on anything from clothes to watches, mugs and more. The items in the Benevolent Store help fuel Benevolent's work in supporting progress for low-income families and will make welcomed and unique gifts.
Benevolent connects people who face hurdles along their paths to stability with people who want to help. Unlike traditional giving, Benevolent provides a platform for direct personal connection between individuals, coupled with the security of a trusted validation process, possible only through Benevolent's model of partnerships with local nonprofit professionals.
