The holidays are a time to be charitable. We’re definitely into companies that sell things on behalf of charities (like ties for Canadian veterans, candles for women, music for children and creams for clean drinking water), but if you want to get right to the heart of these global issues, there are plenty of ways to do so.
If you want to give a charitable gift to somebody on your list this year, think big. You can keep the Beaufort Sea brimming with wildlife, keep a polar bear cool, and you can help a walrus keep its smile. If animals aren’t your thing, there are plenty of humans that could use your help. You can buy school essentials for children, provide baby chicks to communities, pay for a young girl’s education, buy HIV test kits and anti-malaria pills.
WHO IT’S FOR
Anyone who wants to make a difference.
Prices vary – there are plenty of great options for all budgets.
WHERE TO FIND IT
‘Tis the season to be jolly (and a bit stressed from shopping, list-making, cooking and more shopping). But don’t get yourself too worked up, because we’re here to help you cross those names off your list one day at a time, one gift at a time. From now through December 18, we’re wrapping up daily gift ideas, Monday through Friday, so you can get back to more important festive pursuits, you know, like drinking eggnog. We’re going to make this so easy, you’ll want to shop this way every year.
