How I Avoided Holiday Shopping Through a Donation Exchange

As stores begin to hawk their holiday deals, Shareable reposts this 2009 piece about how Neal Gorenflo gave up holiday gifts and discovered a better way to bond with family. I reached my limit with holiday shopping ten years ago. I was never a big fan because it combines a bunch of stuff I don’t like – unnecessary stress, long lines, and buying when prices are high. Not to mention that most holiday gifts miss the mark for me and recipients. And I try to keep the number of things I own to a minimum since stuff demands attention, attention that I prefer to give to people.

  • Communicate your plan early in October before family members have the chance buy you a typical gift. Below is an adaptation of the e-mail I sent this year. Feel free to change it for your situation.
  • If you support many causes, then limit the choices you offer to three. Too much choice can lead to indecision. Pick from your causes those you think your family would be most interested in.
  • Let participants know how you want them to give. If you want them to give directly to your causes, then include links to donation pages or mailing addresses. If you’d like to deliver the donations yourself, then ask them to mail donations to you.
  • Include a short blurb about each cause along with links to web sites. Make it easy for participants to learn about your causes. The exchange is an educational opportunity.
  • If someone in your exchange needs ideas for causes, then direct them to Charity Navigator, Change.org, or Care2 to research causes.
  • EXAMPLE: Shareable, an online magazine about sharing. Learn about Shareable here: http://shareable.net/learn-about-us. And donate online here: http://shareable.net/donate-to-us
