I came across your blog and really wanted to let you know about this website that I think your readers will be interested in.

There is a non-profit relief organization called Oxfam America, whose alternative online gift catalog, Oxfam America Unwrapped, launched last fall with more than three dozen symbolic gifts- the proceeds of which support
Oxfam's programs in 26 countries. Popular gifts from the website include a sheep, water jugs and the offer to "Plant 50 Trees." All gift contributions are general donations to Oxfam America and are fully tax deductible.

The sheep does not actually get delivered to the "buyer's" porch, but in exchange for the donation, a person will receive a card with a fulfillment insert that describes what they have bought and how it will go to help people in other countries. Proceeds from this campaign will go to fund Oxfam America programs world-wide.

With mother's day, father's day, and graduation all coming up this would be great way to give a really meaningful gift.
