Holiday Gift Guide Day 7 - Save the Children Charity

As it's the first Sunday of our Mission Possible Gift Guide, I want to propose something different today. This Holiday Season, give the gift of Charity.

For more than 75 year Save the Children has been helping children around the world. They provide, clean water, education, and a chance at a better life to millions every year. A simple $10 donation can give a newborn baby a better chance at life.

The first step in the gift giving process is simple, choose a gift in honor of a friend or loved one.  Then order your gift online or by phone.

From there, the chosen gift is sent to children in need and the honoree receives a personalized gift card featuring the chosen item.  You can also add a bonus gift to send to the honoree.

There are many gifts in the catalog, but my favorites are

- A goat.  Goats provide Ethiopian families with protein-rich dairy products and are a valuable source of income.  What's more, for a limited time your $40 donation will instantly double and provide a community with not one, but two goats.

 - Stock a library for $100 and give impoverished US children a chance at a better education. 

This is only a small sample of the programs that Save the Children has to offer.  While you are doing your Holiday Shopping this year, consider heading over to Save the Children and give the gift of a lifetime.
