CNN.com posted the article, "The Do-Gooder Holiday Gift Guide," on Wednesday, December 17. The article said, "With all the buying and selling going on, it can be hard to remember the point of the season for many people: Spending time with family, celebrating the religious holidays that inspire the season, and doing some good in the world.
Thankfully, there are ways to combine your need to get Aunt Martha that perfect gift with making the world a better place. You can donate to these causes in your loved one's name. If you need a "thing" under the tree, many charities have T-shirts and water bottles for sale to raise money."
The article went on to suggest a number of charities and organizations last-minute shoppers can support. In addition to featuring the Twin Girl Doll, the article said, "Buy international. There are more companies and nonprofits than ever that want to sell you crafts, clothing and chocolate made by people all over the world, and much of the money goes back to the people who made the goods. Ten Thousand Villages works with artisans in 38 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East to sell their goods in North America. The nonprofit has several locations around the United States and Canada and an active online presence."
