Looking for Charitable Christmas Gifts?

Let’s say last night you couldn’t sleep for the panic of having done nothing for the people you want or have (damn organized gift exchanges) to buy presents for this Christmas. Allow me to recommend this post about socially conscious gifts, like donating a goat to a rural family in a developing nation. I originally put it together due to a similar panic around Mother’s Day, but the links are all still valid. Now all I have to do is decide whether my 16-year-old cousin will feel warm and fuzzy and like she gained important perspective or totally shafted if I give her a card that says Merry Christmas: An AIDS orphan has been educated in your name! 

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
