Giving Back is Groovy
Now is a time more than ever to think about giving back. There’s a notion that giving back has to be grandiose. That it has to be big monetary donation or VW buses full of canned goods. While those are all great ways to give back, there are so many options when it comes to giving back!
We can support one another in small ways from a few doors down, from towns apart, or across the country. Below are a few ways you can join us in what we like to call “Peas, Love & Giving Back!”
To Your Community:
Ask an elderly neighbor if they need any items from the store. On your next trip out maybe you can pick something up for them? You may even have some extra items in your pantry you can share!
Support local businesses! You can buy a digital gift card to your favorite local coffee shop, restaurants, yoga studio, hair salon, etc. to use at a later date. Power to the worker PEAS!
You can give to larger organizations that help PEAple nationwide.

To Each Other:
- Facetime loved ones. Who is the PEA to your pod?
- Prepare a meal for a friend in your building. Bust out your favorite homemade salsa recipe and HIPPEAS Tortilla Chips!
- Set up a virtual hapPEA hour with co-workers. We know you’re missing your fellow HIPPEA chicks!
- Stay home and wash your hands
Wherever you are, no matter how busy, there is always time for Peas, Love, & Giving Back!
