DoorDash launches Get Giving with Dan Levy, A Socially Responsible Gift Guide

During the most wonderful time of the year, it’s important to uplift the small businesses that power, and are at the heart of, local communities. To celebrate the season of giving, DoorDash collaborated with Schitt’s Creek star Dan Levy for Get Giving, a curated list of holiday gifts all created by a variety of remarkable small businesses on DoorDash led by immigrants, people of color, and other historically underrepresented entrepreneurs. 

From a Vietnamese Coffee Kit and Ethiopian Wine for the beverage connoisseur in your life, to candles and fresh flowers for your self-care loving friend, to Bagel Making Kits and Sundae Starter Kits for the DIY pro on your list, and more, you’ll find gifts from more than 40 small businesses across the US and Canada that are Dan Levy approved. 

In an exclusive statement, Dan Levy shared, “As a small business owner myself, I always try to support other entrepreneurs whenever possible. I’m so glad that I could partner with DoorDash to curate a gift list focused on local neighborhood shops and restaurants this holiday season. Whether you’ve already made your list, or you’re a last minute shopper, we’ve put together some unique gift inspirations that’ll get to your loved ones on time!”
