Let me preface this by saying…I love blogging. I’m proud of what I do and I’m soooo thankful for you guys and the motivation you give me to keep on going. But I’ll be honest, this time of year I get a little weary. The COUNTLESS gift guides, the 20 “swipe up” Instagram stories with affiliate links (really just ALL the affiliate links), sometimes it is just….a lot. And I’m sure some of you guys reading feel the same way. I know we’ve all got to get our coins, but it feels like overkill at times. This holiday season, I’m trying to promote less, and focus on brands I care about that make amazing products, so today I’m SO dang excited to introduce you to Mon Amie.
Mon Amie literally means “my friend” – this brand is composed of (and inspired by) passionate people who care to make an impact in the world. Each watch supports a great cause and empowers people to be part of the change they wish to see in the world.
When Mon Amie reached out to the ladies of Diversity Chic, it felt like a match made in heaven. Since I live in Denver now, we aren’t able to put out monthly posts, but DC definitely isn’t dead y’all! We’ve always tried to infuse things we are passionate about into Diversity Chic posts, so a Giving Tuesday post revolving around a brand that gives back was a natural fit. Mon Amie watches are beautiful, but they also have a more important mission.
Each Mon Amie watch has a “theme” and gives back, based on the watch theme. It was SO hard for me to choose, but I eventually landed on the Food watch. As someone who previously had reduced (and sometimes free) lunches at school, the idea of a kid going hungry just because of their circumstances absolutely breaks my heart. With each watch purchased, Mon Amie donates a 2 month’s supply of school lunches for a child. This is such an amazing gift idea for just about anyone – the simplicity of the watches means they will go with pretty much ANYONE’S personal style.
Don’t believe me? Check out the posts from the other Diversity Chic babes to see for yourself!
Oh and a bonus – each watch comes with a SUPER cute pin that matches the theme of the watch! I plan on gifting my pin to my mom – she is the type of person who ALWAYS loves sharing food with others (I get it from her). I know helping fight hunger and bringing comfort to others with food is something that is near and dear to her heart.
When we got together to take photos for this post, we also decided to gather up some clothing and canned goods to donate to Metrocrest. It was such a fun way to give as a group, and it’s something almost anyone can do this holiday season. Even if you don’t have a lot of spare cash, you probably have a few extra clothes in your closet you could pass along to someone in need. I would encourage you to look for coats and sweaters, especially if you’re in a place with colder climate. There are lots of people out there who could really use it. And in the spirit of the Food watch, check those cabinets for some non-perishables to donate. You can always just pick up a few things on your next grocery store run, even $5 goes a long way!
How do you plan on giving back this holiday season?
