This Holiday Season – Shop the Meaningful Marketplace

“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” – Muhammad Ali… It’s 13 weeks now until Christmas – Can you believe it? That means it’s time to start thinking about holiday shopping and budgeting for gifts. A couple of weeks ago I shared how I do the majority of my holiday shopping totally for free – which is amazing. But, one thing that is a big passion of mine is using my purchasing power to give back .When brands or sites use part of their profits to help make the world a little bit brighter and better, they are the type of people I want to support. This feels especially important during the holidays, when so many people are struggling to make ends meet – and it makes a gift more meaningful when you can tell the recipient the story behind it. So, I’m very excited to introduce you to a new site that I’ve fallen in love with: Patchwork Road, a Meaningful Marketplace.

About Patchwork Road

Patchwork Road is a Meaningful Marketplace: Shop exclusive products & deals you won’t find anywhere else. PLUS, Patchwork Road will donate at least 10% of the item’s price to a cause that you choose… every time you shop! This is perfect for gift shopping – Find a great item that’s perfect for someone special on your list. Then make it even better by choosing a charity that has meaning to the recipient. Love it, right? They have a huge selection – from gadgets to clothes, fitness to kids stuff, you’ll find the perfect pick for anyone on your list. {And don’t forget to pick up a gift – or two, or three – for yourself too!} Check out some of my favorites:

31Bits ONE OF in exclusive collection

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Sir Winston Churchill

31 Bits31 uses fashion and design to empower women to rise above poverty. They purchase jewelry from 108 women in Gulu, Uganda, providing them with an immediate, consistent and fair income. Each piece of jewelry is handmade using 100% recycled paper and other local materials. The gorgeous, handmade pieces range from necklaces to bracelets to rings. This would pair great with a donation to the Precious Life Shelter – One purchase could help women and their families in both Uganda and here in the US!

Grip SenseAn iPad case you won’t find anywhere else that’s perfect for both kids and adults. The case keeps the sleekness of the iPad, but protects against those accidental drops – because you KNOW they will happen! It also has an ergonomic grip to make holding your iPad while reading or watching movies that much easier. Learn more by visiting or watching how it’s used on YouTube.

Car-Go and Sugar Snap Files

“For it is in giving that we receive.” – St. Francis of Assisi

Sugar SnapYou’ll never have to navigate the “Bermuda Triangle” diaper bag again! The Sugar Snap is a series of five lightweight, beautifully-designed smaller bags with tabs. Created to fit perfectly inside your existing diaper bag, purse, or tote, they make switching bags a snap. All of the files stay organized by snapping together with an innovative, patent-pending hook-and-ring system. The ring resembles a beautiful silver bracelet with the words “Go Play” imprinted on it, reminding us to play each day. I have this – and it is a LIFE SAVER! Car-Go is a compact, beautifully designed bin that fits perfectly in your car or SUV trunk, leaving plenty of space for a stroller, shopping bags and more, that holds your sugarSNAP files inside. This is on my “to-buy” list!


They are having a fantastic giveaway event – One lucky winner will get a $500 PRIZE: $250 DONATED TO THE CAUSE OF YOUR CHOICE PLUS $250 FOR YOU TO HAVE A SHOPPING SPREE ON PATCHWORK ROAD! WHAT WOULD YOU DO? If you had $250 for your favorite cause, how would you spend it (blankets, clothing, food, supplies)?

  1. I love those gift ideas, and they are all stunning and even better is the charitable work! I may have to use this site for my holiday shopping.

  2. Oh, I love the 31bits jewelry story! I am such a slacker when it comes to shopping for the holidays. You telling me that it is 13 weeks away just stresses me out! :)

  3. Those Sugar Snap organizers are great! Patchwork Road sounds like a neat concept and I will have to check it out – thanks for sharing!
