Gifts that Give More at the Literacy Site

You've all read my posts here asking you to take a minute and click on the button at The Literacy Site. If you haven't clicked today for all the great causes (literacy, health care, mammograms, food, environment, animal care), please do so!  But today I wanted to write and let you know about another great feature of the site- Gifts that Give More. This is a wonderful way to give to a specific cause- the needs are sorted by topic, and you can also sort by price and popularity.

If you are stuck for a good idea for a Mother's Day gift for a mom that has everything, think about donating at The Literacy Site in her name to a cause that she would like. You'll get a certificate that you can print out to show her what good was done in her name. My mom is a librarian and taught me to love reading and books, so I donated money to buy textbooks for girls in Darfur in her name. Mom was so excited and thought this was a great gift. There are also causes related to hunger and poverty, health care, breast cancer, animal care and the environment. So you shouldn't have any problem finding a cause that speaks to you!

Disclosure: I received no compensation and no product for this post. Just wanted to write about something close to my heart!
