Great Idea for Mother’s Day Gift – Adopt a Penguin, Support Organic Farming, Clean The Air

Looking for the perfect mother's day gift to honor mom?  Why not stop toxic dumping, clean the air or adopt a panther – all in your mom's name?  You can give an eco-fabulous gift!  Why buy her flowers that wilt (and could be sprayed with pesticides) or bubble both (that could contain phthalates or 1,4-dioxane).  Do something eco-friendly instead!  Changing the Present allows you to pick from a number of great causes.  You create a personalized card announcing the donation, pick out your gift, the monies go to the organization you selected, and you just helped save a snowy owl or planted 10 trees.

Changing The Present LogoYour donations are tax deductible as allowed under law.  ChangingThePresent.org passes the entire donation through except for a transaction fee of 3% plus 30 cents (which covers the credit card transaction fee).

What are some of my favorites?  You can restore rangeland in Southeastern Angola.  A gift of $100 will demine and restore 25 square meters of land and help restore nature's balance, including for elephants.  For $6, you can Clear the Air for one family by purchasing a fuel efficient cook stove, thereby improveing the respiratory health of the women using them and their families.  Or you can adopt a variety of animals, from penguins to snowy owls.  You can adopt a jaguar for just $35.  Many great opportunities exist for every price range.
