A Meaningful Christmas Gift – Support A Charity In Someone Else’s Name

by Pam on December 13, 2009

donate to a charity in someone else's name for their Christmas giftHere’s a thought – rather than giving your loved-ones yet another gizmo or gadget that they neither want nor need, why not consider supporting a charity in their name?  Let them know how special they are to you by helping someone else out and providing them with a gift card.

This is the wording found on the gift cards I purchased this Christmas to send along with my Christmas letters.  It reads: “A special thank you to a special person.  As a way of saying thanks for all you do, in your honour, a dinner has been purchased and will be served to a Homeless person in our community this holiday season.  Thank you for making a difference in my life.”

I know I would be touched to receive such a card.  I think your family and friends would be moved as well.  There are a lot of charitable organizations that offer these cards in exchange for donations.  I would encourage you to seek out these opportunities.  You can do two things at once:  Support a charity of your choice and give a meaningful gift to those you love.

Let’s help our community this Christmas.
