Still stumped?

Yes, you read my blog about the horrors of consumption, and you and I are in total agreement, but you still need to get something for your daughter-in-law, cool office-friend, brother in Thailand where it's way too late to ship. Or, you want your child to participate in giving in a way that will be concrete to them. I found one for you:

What if there was a simple way to provide students with the books, technology, and supplies that they need to learn?

What if people from all walks of life could connect directly with public schools, learn about specific classroom needs, and choose how to help?

It's the same idea as, applied to low-income public schools in the United States. You get to choose your state, your specific area of interest, how much you want to donate, and then you click. It matters, and it changes lives.

I have just taken care of 6 people
on my list, they will be thrilled,
the school will be happy,and I won't be spending time looking for
ribbons to match paper on a present
that no one want....
Many thanks

I love it when someone can point me in a cool direction. How come I have never heard of these before??!! I have a feeling they are the tip of the iceberg and you can bet I will be trying to find more worthwhile places to help.
