A new year, a new chance to give back! January is here, and with a new month comes new causes to help support and raise awareness for. If your New Years resolution is to help others and be more charitable, you can start here. Of course using Goodshop coupons and offers will always donate to a charity or nonprofit of your choice.
National Volunteer Blood Donor Month
January is National Volunteer Blood Donor Month (NVBDM). America’s Blood Centers, AABB and the American Red Cross work together to raise awareness of blood donation. You can give blood this January and make a difference to your community, even if you’re a first-time donor. Just one pint of blood can help save up to three lives.
Cervical Cancer Awareness Month
Did you know nearly 13,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year? The National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC), a nonprofit organization serving women with or at risk for cervical cancer, works to advocate for cervical health in all women.
Want products that give directly back to cervical cancer research and awareness groups? Choose Hope is an online store that donates their earnings to leading cancer research facilities. You can use these Choose Hope coupons and deals. Or if you want to show your support for the NCCC and cervical cancer awareness in general, you can find products using these CafePress coupons and offers for gifts and merchandise.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
In 1994 Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act, designating that day (January 15 this year) as a national day of volunteer service. Instead of a day off from work or school, Americans of all backgrounds and ages celebrate Dr. King’s legacy by turning community concerns into citizen action. You can start giving back to your own community by donating goods or your time to any local charities that need it. Ask around or check Goodshop’s list of nonprofits to find one in your hometown.
