During the festive season, we’re reminded to be grateful for the things we have, and to do our part to help those that are less fortunate. Although we all feel extra generous during this time of year, it’s important to remember that we should all do our part to give to the greater good all year long, not only during the holiday season.
Why should we give? For the simple fact that it brings joy. What you might not realize is that generosity also has its health benefits. Recent studies have shown that giving can actually increase your health, happiness and overall wellbeing. According to the International Journal of Psychophysiology Studies, some of the health benefits associated with giving and helping others include, lower blood pressure, increased self-esteem, greater happiness and even a longer life! (Cleveland Clinic).
So if that doesn’t inspire you, here are 3 ways that you can show generosity this holiday season (and the whole year through):
1. Donate to your favorite Charity
There are a wide variety of charities to choose from and the festive season is the perfect time to start donating to your favorite cause.
At Eminence, we contribute to several charities throughout the year. Our most recent cause is our very own Eminence Kids initiative. A portion of the proceeds from every product sold goes towards our Éminence Kids Initiative and ultimately helps provide organic fruits, vegetables and foods to sick children around the world.
If you are an organization or an individual interested in partnering with us to help bring the Eminence Kids initiative worldwide or a spa partner interested in contributing locally, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Volunteer your time
Giving doesn’t only include gifts and monetary donations - you can also help others by volunteering your time. We suggest picking a volunteer activity that suits your interests. Do you have a green thumb? Volunteer at a community garden. Are you great with people? Help out at a retirement home or a hospital.
3. Give a gift that Gives Back
When purchasing a gift for that special someone, try purchasing a product from an organization that gives back to the community. Is someone on your gift-giving list a lover of skin care? Why not pick up a Sweet Red Rose Whip Moisturizer at your local Éminence authorized spa? For every Sweet Red Rose Whip Moisturizer we sell, we donate $5 to Breast Cancer research. The added bonus is that through our Forests for the Future initiative, for every product sold, we plant a tree in developing countries around the world. When you purchase any Éminence product, you’re also helping global communities, restore their environment, grow more food and build a sustainable future.
From all of us at Eminence we wish you a happy & generous holiday season!
