Got a loved one who has everything or is trying to declutter? I scoured the Internets for you, and here some very interesting charitable gift ideas. Of course, you can still send me real presents.POOP!
Show you give a sh*t about the planet! Only $12.
NEXT GIFT IDEA -->Volunteer Vacation
Send your loved one on a volunteer vacation. Since volunteers have to pay their own travel expenses, you'd be giving not only a free trip but also the satisfaction of helping out. I really liked the American Hiking Society's volunteer vacations -- you help build and maintain trails in national parks. How cool is that?

Empower someone who need help by sponsoring an international businesswoman through Women to Women International. (Full disclosure: I have done this before and it is super cool.)
Donate any amount or sponsor a woman for $30 a month.
