There's no better way to celebrate the season of giving than giving to those who are truly in need. So, here are some ideas to help you really get into the spirit of the season.
· You can donate all those holiday cards, or any type of greeting card you receive, to the St. Jude's Card Recycling Program. At St. Jude's Ranch (a residential treatment facility for abused, abandoned and neglected children) the children will use those cards to make "new" cards to sell. They learn the importance of "going green" and earn money at the same time. Visit stjudesranch.org
for more details.
· If you prefer to give a gift to a child in need, check out pajamaprogram.org
. With the Pajama Program you can donate pajamas and books to children that are waiting to be adopted.
· There are thousands of American troops in remote regions of the world, separated from their families during the holidays. You can remember these men and women in the military by sending care packages from Operation Gratitude. You will find a wish list of items to donate at opgratitude.com
· Give to both someone you care about and someone in need with Tickets-For-Charity. You can buy tickets to music, sporting or theatre events through this website while supporting important causes. Visit ticketsforcharity.com
for more information.
Of course, the season of giving is also the time to give to those you care most about. What better present could there be than the gift of time?
