Holidays are for GIVING!

7:16 PM

Hi Ladies!!

With the holidays coming so soon I thought I'd share with you some great giving ideas I read about in Glamour magazine. This is from their article 31 Days of Giving.




#1 Help get PJs to kids in shelters so they won't have to sleep in their clothes by giving just $10 at pajamaprogram.org

#2 Mentor a struggling student online at icouldbe.org.

#3 Donate books you've already read to your library.

#5 Fight malnutrition. A $1 gift to vitaminangels.org will provide much-needed vitamin supplements to children in places like Honduras & Haiti.

#6 Tend a garden. $5 to dinnergarden.org buys seeds for enough veggies to feed a struggling family of seven.

#7 Do some pro bono work. Whether you're in marking or IT, taprootfoundation.org can match you with a nonprofit in your community that needs your skills.

#9 Click and give. At care2.org, every click you make prompts a sponsor to make a donation that will fight breast cancer, global warming and more.

#10 Use GoodSearch to find what you're looking for online, and every search will send money to a cause of your choice.

#14 Send a free holiday card to a soldier abroad via redcross.org/email/saf.

#16 Keep someone's lights on. Even $5 at smallcanbebig.org makes a difference to a family who needs help with bills due to illness, domestic violence or other tragedies.

#21 Feed four children in Tanzania a healthy breakfast for just $1 at gocampaign.org a nonprofit run with the help of kids from the United States.

#22 Warm toes. $5 to hannahssocks.org buys seven pairs for a homeless person.

#23 Play trivia. At freekibble.com every answer - right or wrong- sends 10 pieces of dog food to an animal shelter.

#25 Stock a refrigerator. Just $1 to feedingamerica.org will provide nine pounds of groceries to a hungry family in the US. 

Giving is beautiful!!
