ChangingThePresent.org has over a thousand donation gifts covering every cause you can think of. For very little money people can choose to buy books for children, save an acre of the rainforest, buy an hour of a cancer researcher’s time or feed a hungry family. And you can make a donation gift in someone’s name and send them a personalized card. You can choose from a library of photos, or upload your own.
