Happy holidays…says this cute pup! <3 I know this is a business blog and so for this special edition of #BusinessWithKS, I will feature gift items that are great for giving this Christmas.
A few days ago, I advertised the opportunity to be in this list and set this criteria out: shippable items or based in Davao city (my hometown!) and they should be locally made/ sourced, and fully owned by a Filipino. As you know, I love helping small, local businesses, because I’m part of that community too!
In this season of giving, let’s do our best to buy from people who are homegrown heroes, those who strive to get their passions out and give jobs, development, and solutions to communities. As much as you can, please SUPPORT LOCAL. If you have no problem giving money to a stranger, you should prioritize your friends, family, and people from your hometown, right? 🙂
Let’s begin! 😀
