In the chaotic, impersonal, and often ego-centric world of gift giving, your wallet and heart may be left feeling… empty. With giants like Amazon, Walmart, and Apple, it’s unclear what happens to your money once you swipe your card. Luckily, Hope Tank in Denver can help you make the most out of your giving by ensuring that your gift is also benefiting your community.
Established in 2012 by Erika Righter, Hope Tank gives back to twenty local nonprofits including Shiloh House, Access Gallery, and Denver VOICE. When you purchase something from Hope Tank, it will have a sticker on it that lets you (and your loved one) know which nonprofit the gift is benefitting. Best of all, if you don’t find something that tickles your fancy at the store, Hope Tank even has an Inclusive Denver Business Directory on their website. The directory lists businesses that are people of color/women owned, wheelchair accessible stores, and much more! This makes it insanely easy to be more mindful when shopping this holiday season. If that doesn’t increase the warm and fuzzy feelings of the holidays, I don’t know what will!
Let’s face it, Hope Tank is the real MVP and they can truly help transform the way you spend your money year round. Do you know of any local businesses that are making your community a better place?
