5 Gifts For Those Looking To Give Back This Season

'Tis the season for gift giving and spreading love. For some reason, the holiday spirit makes everyone feel some kind of way wanting to give, give, give. While you're buying gifts for your family and friends, think about buying a product that supports local charities and causes. Just by purchasing specific products over others, you can not only give to your loved ones but to someone in need, as well.

Check out five products that not only are great items but give back to charities all over the world.

1. Passion Planner

Passion Planner


This one is for all you organized freaks out there. It's about to be a new year, which means new years resolutions. New year, more organized me, right? Well, with passion planner, this is a great item that'll help you and your friends to just that. Passion Planner is an amazing organizer that has some amazing features. I've been a loyal customer of Passion Planner for over a year now, and I'll never turn back! The planner allows you to focus on not only your to-do list for the week, but your week, month, and yearly aspirations and goals.

The best part? For every Passion Planner purchased, another planner gets donated. They've already donated over 240,000 planners to schools, organizations, and individuals alike. Each of their planners represents a different cause, as well; from breast cancer awareness to animal shelters to domestic violence.

2. LifeStraw



Every time you buy a LifeStraw product, a child in a developing country will receive a water supply for an entire year.

You read that right. LifeStraw is known for their filtered straws and water bottles that eliminate any bacteria, parasites, or viruses in the water. I highly recommend this product for anyone who is outdoor-centric, or someone looking to give back to a kid in a developing country.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

I'll admit it, when I first met you, I wasn't sure how well things were going to work out. Although I didn't know you that well at the time, we seemed to be opposites in almost every way. You were cool, edgy, and laid-back, and I was more awkward, goofy, and anxious.
