Hi Krista; Good comments, as always. For years now many, many people have been in to "alternative giving". While members of my immediate family do get some carefully thought out, small gifts we pretty much give donations in the names of others that go to support education, health care or life enhancing projects in developing nations. Our loved ones appreciate these gifts. They know they do not need another belt or shirt. They also love the idea that a gift was given in their name that truly makes life better for someone who has less opportunity in this life than they do.
