The holiday season is a time of giving. This holiday season, I ask you to please remember those who are in need of our generosity the most, such as the families affected by the recent typhoon in the Philippines.

I created a fundraising website through the US Fund for UNICEF http://inside.unicefusa.org/goto/ithinkiwantiwill. My goal is to reach $1,000, and with your help, we can reach that goal easily.

We can also all give back this holiday season by donating to different charitable organizations, shopping for gifts from organizations that give back to the community, or buying gifts that go directly to those in need. The following is a list of organizations I know about that sell merchandise (Please add to this list through the Comments section):

  • US Fund for UNICEF – Order Inspired Gifts by December 12, 2012, gifts will be matched $1 for $1
  • Shot@Life – If you donate to Shot@Life, you get a 25% off coupon to use when you buy merchandise at their online shop.
  • Malaria No More – Donations sent in by December 31, 2012 will be matched up to $100,000.
  • charity:water – You can shop for gifts, from wristbands to speakers.
  • Room to Read – Donations sent in by December 31, 2012 will be matched up to $2 million

Again, these are just SOME of the many organizations out there that give back to those in greatest need. If you want to share any information on any charitable organizations you know about – whether local, national, or international – PLEASE comment below. Let’s all come together and do what we can to give back, especially during this season of giving.
