I’ve previously written up the idea of charitable giving at Christmas. It’s a bit late now I guess, but, in doing some reading around for next week’s column I came upon an Australia Institute paper (pdf) that I’d missed on Christmas giving. It gives a bunch of links to Christmas giving programs of various charities which I reproduce below. Bookmark it for next year!
The Wilderness Society
Freecall 1800 030 641 and ask for the ‘In celebration’ package
Others may want to list other urls in the comments. And of course as the Australia Institute notes
It is, of course, perfectly possible to simply make a donation to your preferred charity and then create your own package of information to give the person or people to whom you would normally have given standard Christmas presents.
