The closer we draw to the end of the year, the more demanding the prospect of shopping and gift-giving becomes – but for most people, it’s a holiday necessity. Here’s a simple way to make holiday (or everyday!) shopping much more rewarding: make a charitable gift one of your purchases. Make the most of your bargain-hunting savvy and snag some warm sweaters or scarves for a homeless shelter in your area, or scoop up some toys or colorful school supplies for a children’s charity. Donations like these are greatly needed and much appreciated. Turn the hassle of holiday shopping into a gratifying experience by making a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
