Thanksgiving is over. It’s time for the holiday season! I am now allowing myself to listen to Christmas music. Starting: now.
Here are some easy easy ways to be a good person during the next month:
1. Donate your old books to hospitals or libraries.
2. Regift the remnants left on giftcards as donations to your fave charity at plasticjungle.com.
3. Tend a garden by giving $5 to dinnergarden.org to buy seeds for enough veggies to feed a struggling family of seven.
4. Fight hunger and malnutrition by giving $1 to vitaminangels.org which gives vitamins to kids in poor parts of the US, Honduras, and Haiti.
5. Click around at care2.com. Literally, CLICKING will help.
6. I don’t care how peaceful and against the war we are. Send a free holiday card to soldiers who won’t be spending Xmas morning cozy and warm. Go to redcross.org.
7. Stop Googling and Wikiprusing and use Goodsearch instead. Same results, but it will also send money to causes of your choice.
8. Stock a fridge by giving a measly buck to feedingamerica.org. The donation will supply a family with 9 pounds of groceries.
9. DO NOT WRAP YOUR PRESENTS THIS YEAR. Alternatives: newspaper, magazine collages, wallpaper.
10. $1 at gocampaign.org…a US nonprofit will feed 4 Tanzanian kids a healthy brekky.
11. Play some trivs at frekibble.com. Be your answer right or wrong, a puppy will still be less hungry.
Please do atleast one of these. I promise it will make you feel less materialistic this season.
