Christmas Giving To Bless Us All.

Do You Have Someone On Your Christmas Shopping List Who’s Difficult To Buy For?

Pretty much everyone has that one challenging person to gift at Christmas.  It may be your neighbors whom you don’t know all that well, your pastor, a far-away grandparent, even your wealthy boss who needs nothing you could possibly afford.  Or maybe you want to acknowledge people you don’t really know but who provide services throughout the year that you’d like to thank them for:  your grocer, postman, etc.

Make It Truly Count.

Whenever gift-giving seems frustrating and impossible, here’s the ideal gift solution:  Make a charitable donation to an animal welfare organization on behalf of that person.  This way, your money is put to use for the greatest good for animal welfare instead of being wasted on something the person probably doesn’t need or even want.  They will be honored that you’ve acknowledged them in such a kind and thoughtful way; you will get to claim the gift as a tax deduction; and the animals will receive the desperately needed benefit of your support.

Need Some Ideas?

Here is a short list of some very worthwhile animal welfare organizations that can really use your gift for the best of the animals.  And remember — every dollar counts, no gift is too small.  Once you’ve made your donation, all you need to do then is send your person a Christmas card letting them know a donation has been made — in their name — to the animal welfare organization you chose.

Milagro Senior Pet Refuge  (

About jeannie:  I’ve been pro-actively involved in pet rescue all of my life. I founded Milagro Senior Pet Refuge© (Phoenix) in 1998, and BareFootPets (TM) in 2008. Animal welfare has always been and will always be my heart’s work. If my only legacy is that I save a handful of precious souls that would not survive otherwise, I’m good with that.
