From the Heart 

These Valentine’s gifts are big on caring but low on resources.

Cupid’s Coupons: Create coupons redeemable for a special date, a long massage or a quiet, scented bath.

Virtual Love: Send e-cards from your favorite charities to help raise awareness (and funds). The Make-a-Wish Foundation offers free cards designed by the children it benefits. The World Wildlife Fund offers animal-inspired love notes.

Big Heart: Forgo a gift in favor of a donation that helps people in need. Heifer International gives food-producing animals to people in developing nations. Charity Water provides clean drinking water.
