The Best Gift is Helping Others

I think a lot of people are feeling the same thing this holiday season: I don't need more stuff.
I'd rather that money went toward some good in the world.

Inspired by Steve Garfield, I'm asking my friends and family to donate to Doctors Without Borders. They're an independent international medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural or man-made disasters, or exclusion from health care in more than 70 countries.

CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS TODAY.

MORE DONATION IDEAS:: The UpTake (support citizen journalism!), Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (my mom had breast cancer), Lupus Foundation of America (my aunt suffers from Lupus.)

(ps - but you know, I still totally want a Wii and Guitar Hero!)
