in this beautiful season of thanks and giving, you might be looking for new and creative ways to give (financially). there are always lots of beautiful options out in the world for giving, but here's another wonderful one. i strongly believe in compassion international and what they are doing in the world as well as their integrity & trustworthiness. i found out they have a gift catalog filled with one-time donation ideas, with a range of amounts from $10 Bibles or $16 food for a malnourished child, to $1600 computer labs or $7500 surgery, and everything in between! so many beautiful options... dental hygiene kits, water filters, birth attendants, education for new moms, etc.! so as you think through ways you might like to give this season, i'd urge you to consider any of the gifts on their site (and maybe even consider sponsoring a child monthly!) if you're suspicious about where your money is really going (which is valid and wise!) head over to their FAQs to learn more about their financial integrity.
here is the link for their site: GIFT CATALOG
take a stroll! ^^
i'll letchya know here of a few more giving opportunities elsewhere, too!
