Tis' the season...
So the holidays are officially here and there are gifts to get and gifts to give. Next week I will be sharing all my favorite gifts for the season but, before that I wanted to share a few great ideas. With just a few dollars you can make a difference and help focus on what the season is really about. Instead of buying holiday cards, I love the idea of donating a little something in the name of each person on your holiday card list. Here are a few charities where with just a few dollars you can make a difference...
Donate $1 for two books shipped to a classroom in Africa at Books For Africa
Donate $2 for a set of drumsticks for a low-income public school student Little Kids Rock
Donate $3 for a field trip to a museum, concert or show for a high-risk youth at Create Now
Donate $4 for a two hour prepaid phone for a soldier stationed overseas Cell Phones For Soldiers
Donate $5 for a one hour kerosene stove for a family that uses only open fire at Food For The Poor
Donate $6 for measles vaccinations for 15 children in a developing country at Doctors Without Borders
Donate $7 for a week's worth of food for an abandoned dog or cat in a shelter at ASPCA
Donate $8 for a medical teaching doll for a child suffering from cancer at St. Jude
