I want to give meaningful gifts this year, but am stumped for ideas. What do you suggest?

The very best gifts are those that transform lives.  There are many ways to open doors, or to give gifts that will last a lifetime.  In addition to the many options through charitable donations, here are a few very personal ideas:

  • Contribution to a (grand)child’s Registered Education Savings Plan
  • Gift certificate for pre-marital counselling for a newly engaged couple
  • Micro-financing loan through an organization such as Kiva
  • Commitment to spend time every week with a child, teen, or adult learning to read
  • Showing someone how to plant and maintain a garden, and helpingthem do it

Give a gift that transforms, one that lasts a lifetime.  If you need more ideas, Talk to Fran.
