Happy Holidays; Last Minute Gift Idea for the Person Who Has It All

Happy Holidays to everybody!

If you still haven’t been able to find a gift for the person who has it all, consider donating in their name to a cause that is near and dear to them. It’s a gift times two since there are two recipients and gift-matching could increase its benefit even further. This results in a gift that’s valuable and won’t take up space. For example, as an animal lover I would love to see a donation to a cause that has to do with animals, particularly to animal shelters.

I learned about the following sites in a mailing list thread that discussed sites for donation gifts.

Charity Navigator provides a listing of charities from which to choose, categorized by cause.

Changing the Present is a “nonprofit website offering gifts that change the world. Browse [its] causes to find gifts that make a difference, or search for your favorite nonprofit to make a donation.”

JustGive “is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to connect people with the charities and causes they care about and to increase overall giving.”
