ANOTHER WAY TO GIVE BACK

Our guys love all things technological and sporty. They love products that are new and inventive and our gift guide definitely has some of those, but what will they do with all of their gifts from last year that they have moved on from by now? 

HOW YOU CAN GIVE BACK

- Clean out your closets and sort through the clothes that you no longer want for yourself:
• Suit jackets
• Trousers
• Ties
• T-shirts
• Shoes
- Sort through old gadgets to donate:
• Torches
• Cell-phones
• iPads
• iPods
• Radios
- Exercise equipment can be recycled and donated if in good shape

WHERE TO DONATE

Career Gear 
Gift My PC 
One World Running 
Cell Phones For Soldiers

If you know of other donation drop-offs across the country, please leave a comment below to share!

PACKAGE YOUR DONATION

Think of your donation as gift-giving and find the best way to present it to the organization of your choice. Combine all of your items in a basket or tote-bag. Remember, these baskets and bags can be re-used by the organization, too!
If your donation is small, take a look at our simple packaging ideas to get inspired and make your gift special.

WRITE YOUR GIFT CARD

It's important to teach children about giving-back through donations, but it's also necessary to make sure they understand exactly what they are donating and why they are doing it.

Talk to your kids about the different products you are donating and what they will be used for. Allow them to understand that through giving, they are allowing other dads to have a happy holiday season just like theirs will. This makes the process more meaningful for your kids.

Ask your child what they hope their donation will do for those men receiving it and let them write their message to them on their gift card.
