Gifts for Everyone: Charitable Donations

The holidays are all about giving. What better time to let your gift make someone else’s life a whole lot better.

You’ll be an angel to animals in need when you become a monthly donor to the ASPCA. Or give a holiday donor gift card in honor of an animal-lover — and save the life of a homeless cat or dog.

By purchasing one of Tonic Gear‘s hip graphic tees, you’ll provide life-changing necessities for people around the world, like mosquito netting, clean drinking water or a year’s education. Or you can choose to have 25 trees planted to combat the effects of global warming.

Help end the cycle of poverty for a family around the globe by donating donating a cow, sheep or even a flock of chicks through Heifer International.

Remember our soldiers this holiday with Homes for Our Troops, which provides specially adapted housing for severely wounded veterans.

Browse underprivileged kids’ wish lists at and donate toys that will make their dreams come true.

Donate to Brad Pitt’s favorite charity, Global Green, and help build eco-friendly homes for deserving families to replace some of the more than 50,000 dwellings destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

Make life better for an orphaned or abandoned child with a donation to SOS Children’s Villages. In addition to providing basic necessities like food, clothing, and education, the charity gives kids what they want most of all, a family.

Want to donate money in the name of someone on your list but unsure of what charity to choose? When you purchase a charity gift card through, the person you give the card to can decide to donate the money to any of 200 different charities affiliated with the program.
