Share + Do Good is a giving boutique located in Downtown Fullerton, here in Southern California. Every item that is sold in this shop helps empower people all over the world by creating jobs, telling their story, and giving you a labor of love in the form of a beautifully designed product.

My friend Kristen told me about Share, who is owned by her middle school Cabin Leader at Youth Group Camp, Lilly Tokuyama!  They serendipitously bumped into each other after 10+ years in downtown Fullerton which is when Kristen learned about the shop.  She thought it was right up my alley and gave me a postcard and of course I had to go visit!

Kristen was definitely right because I LOVE everything about Share!  From the products that are design-driven, unique, and fashion forward,  to the decor of the shop (love her chalkboard cash wrap!), to the warmth and cheer Lilly brings to this boutique– it’s the perfect place to go shopping for interesting gifts this holiday, or to splurge on something for yourself and know that by doing so you are supporting a great cause (guilt-free shopping)!

Here is a peek at her shop as well as some of my favorite items that is currently in stock and what their cause is!  Don’t forget to make plans to go visit this lovely space in real life as well :)  All the details are below including ways to keep in touch!

Share & Do Good

P1050244These ADORABLE teddy bear ears beanies are by Krochet Kids whose mission is to empower people to rise above poverty.  These beanies are made in Northern Uganda, and help lift over 150 women and their families out of poverty by creating jobs for them.  KK commits to working with each crocheter for a minimum of 3 years to ensure they provide the highest quality of training and mentorship through personal budgeting, savings, loaning and business management topics.  Their goal is to equip the women of Northern Uganda with the financial assets and knowledge to enter into the local economy and thereby end their dependence on humanitarian aid.

iSanctuary necklaces available at Share & Do GoodGeometric brass and silver chevron necklaces by iSanctuary that are handmade by survivors of human trafficking.  iSanctuary products provide rehabilitation options for
survivors of human trafficking, both domestic and abroad.

fashionABLE

fashionABLE‘s mission is to create sustainable business for Africans so they aren’t dependent upon charity, but instead earn the dignity of a job.  They offer opportunity to everyone, with a primary focus on empowering women.  I really love that each scarf comes with a handwritten tag from the woman who made it, completing the sentence, “Because of you I am ABLE to…”

Robots

These adorable Kauzbots are perfect for any kid and anyone who is a kid at heart!  There are 10 different handcrafted, colorful and lovable Kauzbots robots, each created to inspire kids and adults to change the world. 10% of the retail price of robot plush toys and accompanying apparel is donated to the kauz (aka cause) close to the robot’s heart.

The Giving Keys

The Giving Keys helps to provide jobs for those who are looking to transition out of homelessness.  Each key is unique and carries a message like HOPE, STRENGTH, DREAM or COURAGE.  When the wearer of the key encounters someone else who needs the message on the key, they give it away and then send us the story of their key being paid forward.  This is a great gift that keeps on giving.

Tshirts

Share also carries great tees and tanks with wonderful messages to share and do good of course! :)

puravida

These colorful puravida bracelets are perfect stocking stuffers!  Each bracelet purchased helps provide a full time job for local artisans in Costa Rica!  The phrase “Pura Vida” (pu·ra vi·da) means pure life in Spanish. Enjoying life slowly, celebrating good fortune and not taking anything for granted embodies the Pura Vida Lifestyle. It’s about being free and living life to it’s fullest with no regrets or taking anything for granted; it’s an attitude. Pura Vida directly translates into “Pure Life”, simple as that.

There are lots more amazing items that benefit wonderful organizations at Share!  Plan a visit and spend a day in lovely downtown Fullerton.  Don’t forget if you spend $50 you get $10 on Small Business Saturday, November 30th!
