Double Gifting

My in-laws are some of the most generous people I've met. They get us a box of goodies about once every few months. This year they decided that instead of gifts they want us to donate the money we would have spent on them to a charity of our choice. We thought this was a marvelous idea and went looking for charities. I didn't know how many places there were that I'd love to give money too! I also found a few sites that donate all of the proceeds when you buy one of their products, directly to a charity.

Here are a few that I found: A handful of MANY MANY causes!

This website donates money made on olive wreaths to Meals on Wheels. We love meals on wheels here and have delivered quite a few times in our community. It's a great organization that delivers meals to seniors that can't get out.

St.Jude Children's hospital shop. I can't even imagine what some of these parents have to go through and their children.

Samaritans Purse: They do Operation Christmas Child as well. For just $9 you can feed a baby for a week.

For you animal lovers: ASPCA website for help rescuing neglected and neglected animals.

For you green tree huggers. This website sells different things and donates most of the proceeds to a charity of your choice. So you could save the whales or save Fido. Your choice.

Save the life of a child. National Right to Life.

Saving music education in our schools. Very important to little ears and minds!

So as you can see, we have a lot to choose from. We haven't made a decision as to where we will donate yet and it is proving to be a difficult decision!
