I'm aways appalled seeing the first gingerbread and Christmas candy in the stores before summer is even gone. But I realize one must plan ahead...so, this is what we are doing.
Knowing that many people are already making plans for christmas presents, we have some ideas. In a world filled with abundance for many of us, it is often hard to find "just the right present". Some people get really stressed out over this. So, why not make it simple. Why not stop this madness of buying yet another thing nobody needs, and making a powerful impact by helping children in need?
At fairshare, we help children who live in poverty and support projects that provide safety, food, shelter, and education to break the vicious cycle of being poor. By making a donation you too can have an impact! You can choose between a one-time donation or a monthly support, regardless of the amount. You can make this donation in someone else's name and make them feel good about helping others instead of buying useless crap and supporting another industrial giant.
