Hi,

I was wondering if you could make a post about a charity project called Nothing But Red. It doesn't require any money, but I thought perhaps you'd find it appropriate for your blog anyway.

NBR is an anthology of responses to the stoning death - the "honor killing" of Du'a Khalil last April and the larger issue of violence against women. We're looking for submissions, which can be in the form of poetry, fiction, essays, or visual art.

I'd be happy to give you more information. Thank you for your time,

Samantha

This is a great way to begin to involve kids in the act of giving. However, there is a way to do this the whole year. I would suggest that providing the kid with the card and have them on line donate to an organization they want to support. WWW.guidestar.org is an easy search engine to use and www.networkforgood.org one of several tools to use to donate. Another way to involve the kids is to have them work on their geneology or participate in the National Geographic Project. On October 1, 2007 I noted how this is a way to make a difference as well.

Thanks Bob!
You are right about Guidestar and Network for Good as great resources. I use them all the time. NFG and JustGive make keeping track of all my donations easy too!

While we all can influence our own children to give (the beauty of being a parent), I think the Giving Tree Card is good because you can spread the lesson and joys of giving out to kids not under your roof.

This reminds me of the study conducted about gift giving. It revealed that the worst gift givers are aunts and uncles and grandparents. But this giving tree card sounds great. It's also a great way to induce gift giving in all of us.
