This time of year, there's a lot of talk about thinking of others instead of yourself. Whether it's shopping for the perfect holiday present for your sweetie or picking an angel off the Salvation Army tree, there really is something to be said for the joy of giving. Aww, can't you just smell the...holiday spirit??
If you don't want to battle mall crowds to pick up a toy for the Angel tree or school supplies for your office's donation bin, no worries. Shop today at one of 11 downtown businesses and they'll donate 10% of the sale to HandsOn Greater Phoenix, a local charity that works to revitalize neighborhoods through mentoring, serving meals to the homeless and other good works. Bingo! Instant karma points, and all you have to do is buy stuff that's already on your holiday gift list. Now, that's a deal!
Who's in on this "Shop & Share?"
- Retail shops and boutiques include MADE, Bunky Boutique, Chadwick Rueling, Spoken Boutique, the Bead Shop and Conspire, all located within easy walking distance of Roosevelt Row between 3rd and 7th streets.
- The Breadfruit, Roosevelt Tavern, Welcome Diner, Fair Trade Cafe and Nile Cafe are participating, so don't forget to indulge in a little coffee and dinner between shops. 'Cause it's for charity, right??
