The holiday season is all about giving right? So why not give a gift that benefits more than just the people on your gift list. If you are racking your brains thinking about what to give that person that has everything they want and need—dad-in-law, if you’re reading this, yes I’m talking about you—consider making a donation in their name as a holiday gift.
There are tons of sites out there that can help you do this.
After much googling, I found that the best site to go with is Mercy Corps. I especially like them because they have a tool that will suggest a charity idea based on who you’re donating the gift for and what their interests are. Their donation gifts start at just $35 and go to a surprisingly wide range of causes, from helping provide clean water to reintegrating a child soldier.
