So I'm thinking I should be more like my mom. For our family Christmas exchange, she put "men's briefs" on her Christmas wish list. Not because she's odd that way, but because she knows that there's always a shortage of underwear for homeless guys who visit the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Clothing Room where she volunteers.
What if everybody on the planet gave/asked for gifts that made the world a better place for others, not just for themselves? Here's a funny little video in that vein to make us all think!
Donate toward justice issues in the developing world (Development and Peace)
Give an education (Mennonite Central Committee)
Donate food producing livestock (Food for the Hungry)
Give the gift of food (Canadian Foodgrains Bank)
Donate water (Plan Canada)
