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.
Your 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.
