If you're a serious procrastinator like I am, you still may not have all your Christmas shopping done (whoopsies). But, I have good news, because these last-minute gifts may be the best presents you give all year. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can donate to a non-profit organization on behalf of a friend or family member. There are options to spend as little as $10, and most of these places will mail or email a card that explains the donation you've made in their name.
♥ The Girl Effect. Help one of the 600 million adolesecent girls living in poverty by giving to The Girl Effect. Your donation will go towards enriching, empowering and educating a deserving girl.
♥ Women for Women International. "Changing the world one woman at a time" is their motto. Choose from one of their options: organic farming, education, job-skills training or animals.
♥Mercy Corps.There are so many great options to choose from here! Give a goat, a soccer ball, classroom supplies or vaccinations.
♥The Nature Conservancy. Adopt some trees in Brazil, preserve rainforest land, or if they love the ocean, help save the coral reef and its inhabitants.
♥Just Give. If you don't fancy any of the aforementioned suggestions, browse through all the categories at Just Give to find the perfect organization.
