Consider Donating to a worthy cause this Holiday Season

Do your kids actually need that new video game? Have you considered asking your kids if they would like to make a donation instead of getting a gift? we found several worthwhile charities, but two of them stood out to us as great options for helping children in need. Both charities accept PayPal to make your donations even easier.

*Samaritan's Purse and their Operation Christmas Child Shoe-box campaign is our first choice. The shoe-box pick up dates run November 14-21. Most churches act as drop off locations for this campaign but you can also visit Samaritan's Purse website to donate. For a $25 donation they will pack a shoe box for you and ship it.

*The second charity on our list is St.Jude Children's Research Hospital. They are leaders in helping to find cures for cancer, and other life threatening diseases in children. Their Christmas card campaign enables you to choose Christmas card inserts, or Christmas cards you can personalize. They have the option for cards to be mailed, or sent as e cards. All you do is choose your donation amount, and they send the cards to your recipients.
