When I expressed a desire to buy gifts for needy kids this Christmas, Marley found the New York Cares Winter Wishes gift drive for me. It links right to an Amazon wish list, so you can select a gift for a specific child (or a senior citizen) and send it directly to them.
For me, it’s an emotionally fulfilling way to counteract the greed that can creep in during the holidays (I’m not pointing fingers outward, either. I like nice shit, and it’s hard to remember that I don’t need to request ALL OF IT just because the calendar says “December”).
You can go here, and from there click on the lists of gifts.
