Alternatives for Holiday Gift-giving


--by Mish, posted Oct 28, 2020
I shared with all those near and dear to me that instead of exchanging gifts this year for the holidays, I would like to make charitable donations in their honor instead.  I hoped they would do the same for me.

For my KindSpring friends I sent a donation to our KindSpring website to help keep the work growing.

I made a charitable donation to benefit orphans. I will be looking around for more good causes to contribute to. 

Children on our holiday list will be receiving presents from us this year.

I will send out e-cards to save trees.
