More meaningful holiday gifts

The options for giving meaningful/ethical holiday gifts continues to grow. I think that the holiday season is a very poignant time to teach children about the realities of global poverty and our obligation as the wealthiest in the world to share some of what we have in order to help others.

World Vision has been a pioneer in the ethical gift catalog, where you can buy everything from a wheelchair ($14) to a share in a deep well ($100) in someone's name.

Oxfam has joined the trend as well with a chicken starting at $15 CAD.
