Happy Black Friday?  Or Shop Small Saturday? Or Cyber Monday? 


No matter how you decide to shop for holiday gifts this year, we want you to SHOP SMALL and support INDEPENDENT CREATORS as much as you can! 


This HOLLY-DAY season, your favorite personal stylist Holly Katz has created a spectacular GIFT GUIDE full of unique items that has something for everyone, gives back to an important cause - and - ends with a one winner who will win it all! 


When You Give, Holly Gives:


This year, we are using our GIFT GUIDE to support Ahimsa House, helping people and pets escape domestic violence together in Georgia, USA.


Ahimsa House is Georgia’s first and only organization dedicated to helping the human and animal victims of domestic violence reach safety together. 


Domestic violence often hurts family pets, too. Ahimsa House, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization) is dedicated to helping the human and animal victims of domestic violence across Georgia reach safety together. 


They have provided over 150,000 nights of safe, confidential shelter for pets in need.

It costs them approximately $500 to care for one survivor’s pets.  Ahimsa House relies heavily on individual donations, grants, and corporate sponsorships.


So, because we love pets, especially dogs, please consider a donation:


But if you are not able to help right now, Holly will donate FIVE DOLLARS for every listener who sends us their email! Drop us a DM, send it to us on our website, or DM on our social. We will count you in!
