Current Obsession: The Giving Keys

As many of you know, I’m getting married very soon. Like in less than 2 weeks soon. My two amazing little sisters are going to be my bridesmaids and I was obsessing over what to get them as a bridesmaid gift.

I don’t know what a “traditional” gift is or should be, I’m not very good at following the rules anyway. Most of thewedding planning has been done on our gut. Knowing the kind of experience we want to create and finding ways to create that environment at the wedding.

So for my extraordinary sisters, I was looking for something equally extraordinary. And then I found The Giving Keys.

The Giving Keys is a PAY IT FORWARD model. You order a key for $35 with a word engraved on it that has meaning to you. You give it to someone special in your life. Proceeds from the sale of the keys goes to helping transitional housing and homeless shelters. Homeless people help make the keys and it keeps them off thestreets in Los Angeles. Words on the site as inspiration include: Hope. Peace. Love. Fearless. Survivor. Then it occurred to me.


There are a lot of words in the English language. The words I find the most powerful are the ones we use to describe relationships. Sister is a really powerful statement, perfect for two of the most amazing women I have ever known that I also have the privilege to call sister. I ordered 3 and gave it to my sisters last month. We all have one to remind us of our special bond.

Order yours today. Give it someone special. Smile knowing you are paying it forward, helping the homeless and making a powerful statement to someone special in your life. Post your story on their website and share your story with others in The Giving Keys community. Pop back and tell me about it, I love hearing from you!
