Giving is the Best Gift

Yesterday I asked you to accept the challenge of giving something for the next 29 days as a way to live a life of gratitude, especially during the ever increasingly materialistic holiday season.  (http://www.29gifts.org/)

John F. Kennedy said, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” 

For the next couple of days, I’m going to give you ideas how to do just that.  My FAVORITE charities are World Wildlife Fund (www.wwf.org), Big Cat Rescue (www.bigcatrescue.org) and the Humane Society of the United States (www.hsus.org) since the environment and animals TOP my list of priorities.  All three are rated very highly for money management and providing most of your donation to the cause and less to fundraising and administration.  You should always check out charities before donating to get the most “bang for your buck” and ensure your funds are being spent wisely.  One good site for doing so is www.charitynavigator.org

Tomorrow I’ll give you more ideas for donating to worthwhile causes.
