Here's How Instagramming Your Holiday Presents Can Help Support a Good Cause
If you’re planning to post pictures of your gorgeously wrapped gifts on Instagram this year, here’s one more hashtag you should add: #StJudeShareAGift. This holiday season, Garnet Hill launched a fundraising campaign for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and for each photo of a gift wrapped with natural elements tagged with #StJudeShareAGift, the company will donate $10, for a maximum donation of $15,000.
So far, the posts have just started to trickle in, but a couple of our favorite bloggers have already shared their beautiful gift wrapping ideas. Get inspired by the pretty presents below, then wrap your own and snap a pic.
For Jenny from Sugar & Cloth, St. Jude is a charity close to her heart. Her teenage cousin Max passed away from liver cancer, and she says that St. Jude “was a special place for him, and I try to make sure we support them often!” If you’d like to contribute to the cause, take a cue from Jenny’s pretty presents and start with colorful boxes, then wrap with ribbon, and tuck blooms and foliage underneath.
For a mix of glam and natural elements, follow interior stylist Sarah Gunn’s lead and attach big sparkly gem charms onto presents covered in leafy gift wrap.
Getting crafty for a good cause? Add that to our list of favorite holiday activities.
