More Ways To Help During Holiday Season
With the holiday season in full force, it’s that time of the year to buy your friends and family more stuff they don’t need.
Instead of adding to their stash of Christmas presents past, why not give them something they’ll cherish but won’t necessarily clutter up their homes and lives.
Contributing to a charity on behalf of your loved ones is a great way to give back and show your love without taking up space and complicating their lives. After all, how many ties does your dad really need? You can help people in need on his behalf and generate good karma all around.
Below are three great causes you should consider supporting:
Faceaids.org helps get vitally needed drugs to HIV-positive pregnant Rwandan women. For a mere $5, you can purchase a dose to prevent the transmission of HIV to one baby.
The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence helps protect battered women and get them back on their feet and into less violent lives. They’ll take your cell phone contributions and refurbish them, using the proceeds for its programs. For more info, see: www.ncadv.org/takeaction/DonateaPhone.php.
The Breast Cancer Site (thebreastcancersite.com) helps provide free mammograms for economically struggling women. It also sells merchandise to promote breast cancer awareness. Just click on the pink ribbon on the site and you’re on your way to being a supporter.
Sponsors pick up the tab for the free mammograms for every click the site gets. Since 2000, nearly 16,000 women have benefited.
You can also purchase products sold on the site to contribute even more to the cause.
If you’ve got an unused car sitting around your house, consider giving it to Heritage for the Blind and help the blind.
