I don’t know about you, but I’m finally recovered from Black Friday (spent eating more), Small Business Saturday (spent working my tail off at the #beastworldcup at Killington), Cyber Monday (spent catching up from the holiday at my office job) and Giving Tuesday (spent promoting giving to charities close to my heart while training on snow in the rain).

I saw an interesting post, probably on Facebook, about supporting online businesses run by your friends during the month of December. It didn’t have a catchy name- and I don’t know if I’m the person to come up with the catchy name, but I love the idea.

Many of my friends have awesome etsy shops and sell amazing products through other online stores. My goal this December is to buy for as many, if not all, of the people on my lists through a combination of local shops and online businesses run by my friends and I ask you to do the same.

Check out the opportunities below, and this is just pulling from my small circle:

  • Beautycounter– A revolutionary company I’ve partnered with to bring safer products to the hands of everyone. You may have noticed some posts…Shop before 12/13/16 to guarantee arrival before Christmas with standard shipping.
