This year, PinPoint decided to change things up. Instead of sending PinPoint swag out into the world, where it might likely end up in a drawer or landfill, we knew we could do better. We started PinPoint to make a positive impact in the world and it’s because of our friends, our family and the change makers who choose to work with us that we are able to do that day in and day out.

So this year, we chose to donate $2,500 towards women-owned small businesses that matter to the communities who make PinPoint… well PinPoint! On Wednesday, December 20th, we asked our community to tag a women-owned small business that mattered to them on our Instagram. This year, we are so proud to divide our pool amongst thirteen incredible women founders to kick off their 2024.

Some of the organizations are also near and dear to PinPoint, but there were many others we are learning about for the first time and beyond grateful for! Below is the list of all the women-owned businesses PinPoint contributed to for our 2023 holiday gift. We hope you take a minute to parse through each organization – we hope you, too, are amazed by the contributions these women are making in the world.
