give it up

"We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give."
-Winston Churchill

I would give to Heifer International.
Spread some generous ideas around this holiday season by telling us who you would donate your money or time to if you could (or perhaps you already do)!

[1] Name an organization,
[2] include a web address,
[3] tell us who they are/what they do, and 
[4] explain why their cause is significant to you.
[5] Finally, if you want extra credit, choose an organization that has not already been posted by another student. That's right: you will need to read what your peers wrote, and the earlier you post, the easier your task.

If your ideal organization has been "claimed," check out some Nonprofit Organizations or this Charity Navigator for ideas. Oh--and if you've got a little to spare this season, consider following through on your recommendation or making a donation in a loved one's name as a gift!
