This year, instead of just material possessions, it may behoove some of us to think of those less fortunate. Oxfam International (http://www.oxfamunwrapped.com/Default.aspx
)offers aid to people we will never meet, but desperately need all the help they can get. Prices are in British ponds, so gifts range from $10 and higher. Below are some examples of gifts. Purchase a gift in the name of a loved one, and for a moment, remember what the true meaning of the season is. Sweaters, jewelry, and CDs are nice, but this is an extraordinary gift.
School dinners for 100 children $12
Plant 25 trees for $16
Make drinking water safe for 25 people
Build toilets (around $60)
2 textbooks for students -$10http://www.oxfamunwrapped.com/Default.aspx
