Most of you reading this, and those you’ll buy for this year, already have everything you or they could possibly need. So why not give the gift of a greener, better, healthier world?
I love the selections you can make at Oxfam America Unwrapped. You can tailor your donation to the interests of the recipient of the gesture: building tools for a poor village for your father in law, school supplies or uniforms for a teacher, plant a garden for your mom or buy a sheep or cow for a family.

Last year I gave my parents the gift of paying for one needy child to have cleft palette surgery through Smile Train. For just $250 we changed one child’s life FOREVER. Pretty amazing. What I like about Smile Train is that you don’t have to have $250 to help, you can contribute for half of one surgery ($125) or the medications for one surgery ($50) too.
