Gifts that give back are the greatest gifts. They not only allow you to find that perfect something for someone, but they also give back to others in need. It’s a great way to do both when you’re on a limited budget and find wats to five back even more if you’re already in the #GivingTuesday mood.

Ribbon Barrettes for Cystic Fibrosis
My friend Leticia‘s daughter started raising funds for Cystic Fibrosis because her best friend has cystic fibrosis. Emily creates amazing ribbon barrettes and the proceeds go to research to help find a cure for CF via the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). You can buy individual barrettes, custom order your favorite colors or get a pack like a Frozen pack or a Minecraft pack!
