Christmas Donations
Last year I posted some link on my FaceBook of charities people can donate to in lieu of getting me Christmas gifts. Thought I'd post some here. The ones not listed are my local homeless shelter and local pet rescue.

With OxFam America, you can, if you want, select your gift by price range. "Gifts that make smart phones look stupid":

At Seva Foundation, one of the most popular gifts is "restore sight to a blind person." Here you can also shop by price range:

Farm animals to help communities live self-sufficiently...from sheep and heifers to chicks and even honeybees...it's Heifer International, of course:

I'm including this one for the troops that are away from their loved ones for the holidays...Many avenues listed here:

Finally, there's the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, where you can simply donate, or purchase gifts that also support social justice/sustainable living:
