Angela’s Advent, Day 17

When you make a donation to a charity on behalf of a loved one, you give twice, and neither of them becomes clutter.  Here are some great charities to consider –

The good news is donations to a registered charity are tax deductible.

The bad news is not everyone appreciates this kind of gift for one reason or another.  To make sure you get it right

  • Align the gift with the values of the recipient
  • Make the gift in their name, and ensure they, not you, get the tax deduction to avoid the appearance of a “hollow” gift
