All About GTGB
Several years ago, the Christmas season had begun to lose its luster. As my relationship with God grew, I realized more and more that Christmas was losing its true meaning. Out of necessity, I was just buying things for my loved ones, sometimes things they hadn’t even stated they needed or wanted.
I was simply buying to buy. And unknowingly feeding a machine that was hurting people instead of helping.
So, I began searching for more meaningful gifts and discovered that many different nonprofits and ministries sold handmade items that helped others in need. So, when I purchase a gift for my loved ones, that gift would tell a story to the one who received it. The gift they held in their hands on Christmas morning was the hands and feet of Jesus in motion.
It felt good.
It put Christ back into Christmas for me.
And the Lord gave me the vision to become Gifts That Give Back.
Since then, that dream has expanded from a small Christmas shopping get-together in my home to a sizeable charitable vendor market, a Roadshow shop, and a storefront.
You make the world a better place when you shop at a Gifts That Give Back vendor market or store. You are helping those in need both here at home and abroad.
Jesus instructs us to “love our neighbors as ourselves,” and our neighbors are literally everyone. Therefore, everyone is our “neighbor,” and we are called to help them.
Gifts That Give Back is one way to do that.
Together we can change the world while we shop.
Trade between companies in developed countries and producers in developing countries in which fair prices are paid to the producers.
The workers are being paid a fair wage and have good working conditions. They also look for ways to make the production process more sustainable and works to lesson their environmental impact.
This Is Us
We are the Davis's!
We are just your standard, imperfect family on a mission to show the world the love of Jesus through shopping with purpose.
This began a few years ago with a few fair trade Christmas gifts that eventually led us to places we never could have planned for.
What has sprung forth is vendor markets. A mobile shop, and buying a building that now houses a storefront, conference room, and vacation rental to help sustain it all.
What we are sure of is this...God can do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power at work. (Ephesians 3:20)
We cannot wait to meet you soon....and of course shop with you!
