Making a difference

This holiday season, why not try something refreshingly different and give a gift that keeps on giving?

Donating money to a charity in the name of a loved one is the perfect solution for a friend who already has everything or the brother who is impossible to shop for.

It’s also a great way to show you care—not just about your loved one but also about the world. Even a small donation can go a long way to make this holiday season resonate outside of your circle of family and friends.

We’ve come up with a list of some our favorite charities in need of donations, a good starting place if you want a break from the usual gift giving. There are plenty of organizations out there that need your help, both locally and globally, so do your research and pick one that feels right.
