Gift Guide: A Time for Sharing

A few years ago my father started a little tradition with my siblings...he supplied each of us an amount of money and a choice of charities to support with the gift.  It was such a nice pause to our regular morning of crazed unwrapping, to read about each of the charities my father researched for us.  When I have kids I'd like to continue this tradition.  For now, I'm sharing 2 amazing organizations that have gift certificate options for sharing:

Kiva.org's mission is to "connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty." Support an entrepreneur in another country with a small loan to build their business...it's really a fantastic organization doing a lot of good.

DonorsChoose.org - support a hard working teacher by funding supplies or project materials on their wish lists.  

Happy Holidays!
