Some ideas to be a giver this season!


My sister sent me this in an email and requested I share it on my blog too.  :)  I think all the ideas are really awesome and would be a big blessing to many.

Tis the Season

Happy December!!!  Since Christmas is a time for giving, I thought I'd share some fun and inexpensive ways to give to others in case you are interested.  Tis the Season for that Christmas spirit!

  • For $1 you can send two books to a classroom in Africa.  In many schoolrooms on the continent, 20 children share one textbook.  BOOKSFORAFRICA.ORG
  • For $2 you can give a set of drumsticks for a low-income public school student learning to play the drums.  LITTLEKIDSROCK.ORG
  • For $3, you can send a high risk youth on a field trip to a museum, concert, or theatrical production.  CREATENOW.ORG
  • For $4 you can give two hours of prepaid phone time for a soldier stationed overseas to call home.  CELLPHONESFORSOLDIERS.COM
  • For $5, you can gift a one-burner kerosene stove for a family that would typically rely on an open fire.  The stove is reusable and less environmentally taxing than the cutting of timber.  FOODFORTHEPOOR.ORG
  • For $6 you can give measles vaccinations to 15 children in a developing country.  DOCTORSWITHOUTBORDERS.ORG
  • For $7 you can give a weeks worth of food for an abandoned dog or cat at a shelter run by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.  ASPCA.ORG
  • For $8 you can provide a medical teaching doll to be used in educating a child about his or her cancer treatment.  STJUDE.ORG
  • For $10 you can send cloth and tools to an Afghan woman so that she can become self sufficient by taking a six-month tailoring course through Creating Hope International and the Afghan Institute for Learning.  GLOBALGIVING.ORG
  • For $10, you can purchase a box of nails that will be used to adapt a disabled veteran's house from Homes for Our Troops, an organization that provides full accessibility to the injured at no cost.  HOMESFOROURTROOPS.ORG
  • For $10, you can buy a day's worth of fresh fruits and vegetables to feed two chimps - most of which have been orphaned by poachers - at the Jane Goodall Institute's Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo.  JANEGOODALL.ORG/OPRAH
  • For $10, you can provide two specialized bottles for babies born with a cleft palate, who otherwise might suffer from malnutrition before receiving corrective surgery.  OPERATIONSMILE.ORG
  • For $11, 11 trees will be planted in Alabama communities devastated by the April 2011 tornadoes.  ARBORDAY.ORG
  • For $12, 20 pounds of multipurpose soap will help keep families germ free around the world.  OXFAMAMERICAUNWRAPPED.COM
  • For $14 two nutritious meals will be delivered by volunteers from Meals on Wheels to a housebound senior citizen.  MOWAA.ORG
  • For $15 you can give a backpack and school supplies to one homeless or low income child.  CRADLESTOCRAYONS.ORG
