It’s yet again coming up to Christmas time and there are over 1 billion people in the world starving this Christmas. Why not use your money for good and change and sponsor a child for someone you love for christmas this year, or even for yourself!

A most rewarding way to spend $25 – $50 dollars a month is to help those who are the innocents in all this chaos in the world….the children.

JOY FOR CHILDREN UGANDA is a great NGO whom are locally run in Uganda and you can sponsor a child direct through them (please note, this is NOT tax deductable for Australian Citizens)

COMPASSION AUSTRALIA is another great Australian Based NGO who sponsor children. Your money actually gets to the child you sponsor and not the whole community.

If you do anything this Christmas “Just for the sake of it” – Sponsor a Child and the gift of love you will receive is priceless.

So here it is again, that time of year when everyone is out there rushing around trying to figure out what to buy their friends or family for christmas. Me, i just don’t get it, why do we spend hundreds of dollars on toys that sit in toy boxes and barely get used cuz they simply  have “too much” to play with!? I honestly don’t see the point anymore, i’d find myself tearing my hair out with all these toys everywhere, yet they didnt get played with more like just dumped out of the box in the never ending search for something else!

So this year ive decided to change my ways of buying for my family. I’m giving a gift of sustainability, a gift that in turn keeps on giving. There are so many of these gifts right under your nose and you probably don’t even know it!

Support a great non profit and shop in their store! However, always remember THERE IS a DIFFERENCE between a Charity and a Non Profit!

So to get you started here are some great tips on places to give a great gift yet it keeps on giving through programs implemented by the organisations.

Invisible Children – Check out this cool store for Dvd’s & Bracelets, Cool Tshirts, Beanies, Scarves, Bags, Books & More. Each $$ goes back into on the ground programs to help those affected by war in Northern Uganda

Compassion – Gifts of Compassion – A great way to support a person in need.

All For Charity – A range of Items with 100% of Royalties going to either Invisible Children or Betty (Child headed household in Uganda)

Shop Sea Shepherd – Give a great gift and give our Whales a head start this Whaling Season! Awesome Shirts (Check out Whale Wars on Animal Planet!)

Thats just to mention a few.  This Christmas remember, that yes its nice to give a gift to the ones we love but no need to over do it, remember there are over 1 billion hungry people right now, so whilst your shovelling down the lovely christmas day lunch, take time out to thank those around you for your good fortune and to remember those who are less fortunate that yourself. A gift to a stranger can bring more happiness than you can imagine.

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas time.
