As we dive into the holidays we want to stay mindful of getting swept up in grand consumerism. Especially if thoughtful gift-giving is one of your love languages, finding tokens of appreciation for the people that matter most in your life can quickly start to feel like a full-time job. On the other hand, ‘tis the season to also enjoy being on the receiving end of caring gestures. However, as we reflect on all we have to be grateful for, let’s not lose sight of the timely opportunity to give back and share the holiday cheer with those who need it the most. As a women’s wellness brand, Ladykind is passionate about our societal well-being and organizational efforts that bring forth transformative change. In this blog, we’re sharing some of our favorite women’s health organizations that deserve your attention on Giving Tuesday.
