Isn’t this such a cute but oh SO disgruntled puppy?

Dear Reader,

Today’s theme is gifts. Namely, gifts to charitable funds.

I don’t know about you, but I love reading about the various charities/causes. For some reason, it feels good to know that somewhere out there someone is trying to make the world a better place, and that you are helping them to do just that.

Boing Boing has a really nice guide of charities/causes (the Universal Subtitles project is very cool).

I also like hearing about Child’s Play, which basically gives video games to children who are awaiting treatment in the hospital.

If you are looking for something more personal and local, DonorChooses.Org is also a good place to start. You never know what the local school might need.

Also, it is never too late to donate- for most charities, their best (and sometimes, unfortunately, only) donating month is December, so donations made off-holidays are also appreciated.

 

Off to the next post,

E.
