Blow the doors off your Christmas gift list
(NC) You pull into the glutted parking lot at the mall. You roll forward, slowly stalking laiden shoppers to their waiting cars. You squeeze your car in, squeeze yourself out, and brave the hordes of shoppers inside the mall.
You have a Christmas gift list, but you're really not convinced your brother needs another pair of socks, or that your Aunt Millie could actually fit one more coffee mug into her jam-packed cupboard. So how much fun would it be to blow the doors off the family Christmas party by adding a dose of extraordinary joy to the gift exchange?
Skip the trip to the mall and check out Givejoy.ca. You'll find eye-popping gifts of sight, ear-tickling gifts of hearing, and toe-tapping gifts of walking. More specifically:
If your uncle likes to garden – why not give a family in need the seeds to plant a life-sustaining garden in his honour?
If your mom loves her daily walk – why not give the gift of walking to a child in her honour?
If your brother loves his e-reader – give a child reading glasses in his honour.
You can find these gifts and more at www.givejoy.ca, or source other world-changing options from your favourite charity's website.
