Please don't tell me I'm the only one who struggles with the "last minute gift for _____" syndrome. Actually, confession time, that is usually my wife's department, so I don't have to deal with it too much.
But let's face it, there are a lot of people who we want to give something to, but we don't know what. We don't know what because they are typically someone who is doing well and who has everything they need and if they don't, they just go buy it.
So what do you do for someone like that? Let me offer you an idea......
Go to the local Hallmark shop, buy them a nice card and inside the card write, "In your honor this Christmas, I made a donation to God's Littlest Angels in Haiti for $_______. This year, your Christmas gift is making a difference in the life of a child in Haiti who really needs help."
Of course then you also need to go to God's Littlest Angels Donation Site and actually make the donation.
It takes very little time and will touch not only the life of a child at GLA but also the life of the person you gave it to.
Try it and let me know their reaction......
