The holidays are nearly upon us, and chances are you may already have started shopping for the loved ones on your list. But even though there are endless trinkets and treasures in-store, it can still be a challenge to find the perfect gift. If you’re struggling for ideas, it may be time to start thinking passed the boxes and bags.
This is the season of giving – but that doesn’t have to mean only physical presents. Sometimes the best gift for someone who already has everything is giving to someone who has nothing, on their behalf. Charitable gifts in a friend or family member’s name are a great way to spread the cheer to both your loved ones and to those less fortunate.
There are over 86,000 charities in Canada alone, many operating on a small budget but still managing to do incredibly important work. But with all of those options, it can be tough to decide exactly where to focus your attention this year.
That’s why the Delta Optimist has curated a selection of local charities. Giving to these Season of Giving Stars is a wonderful way to contribute to your community this holiday season. You can find a cause that’s especially meaningful to you, or choose any of these options, and know that your gift is having a meaningful impact on the world around you.
Whether you’re giving in someone else’s name or donating on your own behalf, you can help make the local community – and the world –a brighter place with this year’s Season of Giving Stars.
