I struggle more and more each year at the selfishness, materialism, and commercialism of the Holidays. Now that I have a child of my own I want to make sure that I keep the focus on the season and family more than on money and me, me ,me!
I have always liked the idea of donating in someone’s name for a Holiday gift. I have not done it very much (this year I am doing all homemade gifts), but I love looking into it and it gives me inspiration for future Holidays. Here are a a few I found that sound great!
Most importantly, if you are not sure about the charity you are giving to then check it out with the BBB first at this website. http://www.give.org/
