If there is a Ten Thousand Villages or SERRV store in your area, their proceeds go to charitable causes. They are also online.

You could also look into something like Heifer International, where you “buy” an animal (other options include things like beehives and tree seedlings) that goes to a family in the developing world, and when the gift matures and reproduces, the family passes it on to another family in the community, and they pass along the next generation in turn, etc., so the initial gift can end up having a significant impact over time.

St. Jude Children’s hospital has great gifts and giving acknowlegements on their website.

And my daughter, who is now a nurse working in pediatric oncology herself was a patient there in 2006,  she would not be alive without God and St. Jude.

St. Jude patients are from all over the world, as well as the U.S.  No family or child ever pays for any treatment at St. Jude, and healthcare insurance is never required.  They are there solely to research, treat and cure childhood cancers, AIDS/HIV and sickle cell.

I wish you many blessings, you must be a wonderful cousin and friend.  Thinking of others first makes our present and future so much more fulfilling.

My sister did this for her wedding favour, and just made up small cards with a note that said “A donation has been made in your name to the McMaster Children’s Hospital”. You can personalize this of course to whatever funds you can afford and towards whatever agency/hospital/organization stands out to you in your area. Most local charitble organizations will accept any donations  Smile 

Also World Wildlife Fund has the symbolic “adopt an animal” program, where they send you a card with the animal and information http://gifts.worldwildlife.org/gift-center/default.aspx?sc=AWY1302WC900
