Charity Spotlight: Give to Good Causes

During the holidays, we often can’t find that perfect gift for the friend who has it all. Consider skipping the extra present, and instead give to others in their name.

At this time of year, we sometimes find ourselves searching for the perfect gift for loved ones who seem to have it all. Why not skip the extra present and give on their behalf to someone in need of basic necessities? These charities focus on delivering donations to those who need them most. Help a child through emotional trauma; advance literacy in developing countries; or provide a simple item that may be someone’s gateway to a better life.

Books for Africa

Printed materials are a commodity we take for granted. In Africa, many children never attend school and others share a single textbook with their entire class. Education should be a great equalizer; Books for Africa is trying to better it. Devoted to all ages, the organization has helped stock classrooms, school libraries, community resource centers and adult literacy programs, and while they have sent more than 38 million new and used books so far, there is still much to do.

Heifer International 



Providing food to those with none is a noble cause, but the relief of a single meal is short-lived. Rather than putting food directly into hungry mouths, Heifer International helps impoverished areas feed themselves by turning cash gifts into farm animals. A heifer, chickens or a beehive become milk, eggs and honey, and this nutritious food can become a family’s source of income. Or give to a project that provides clean water or home necessities. By supporting agriculture and self-reliance, you’re also providing for the Earth.
