Gifts that give back this holiday

Instead of a gift that is fleeting, consider a gift of giving. GlobalGiving is one such organization that is helping to make it easier to give back this holiday season. Select from any of the more than 1,000 projects you want to support, make a tax-deductible contribution, and you or your giftee will get email updates from the project to see how the gift is making a difference. There are many great causes in DC and the greater DC area giftees could choose to support like:

• Safe Passage: Help 150 Girls Survive Trafficking by FAIR Girls
• Support for DC's Previously Incarcerated Youth by Free Minds Book Club and Writing Workshop
• First response for animal disaster victims by American Humane Association
