explore gifts for good ★ Safety Nets Over a century ago, a British researcher dissected a mosquito (yes, really) and discovered how malaria is transmitted. The disease, while preventable and treatable, still claims 600,000 lives each year — mostly children under the age of five. Buy an insecticide-treated bed net and protect a family of four in an at-risk country. Nothing but Nets, in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Boy Scouts of America, and many others, saves lives, one net at a time. $10. Holiday presents bring smiles. The gifts here also bring hope. by Lynn Coulter One Human Family The Christian Foundation for Children and Aging is the only major U.S.-based sponsorship organization focusing on the needs of the elderly, including their health care and housing. Founded by lay Catholics, CFCA believes “we are all one human family.” The group works with all faiths to aid more than 300,000 impoverished children, youth, and seniors in countries around the world. Its Hope for the Family program provides the basic necessities of life, along with the education and skills for families to become selfsufficient. Donate, or sponsor a child, youth, or aging person, for $30 a month. Vote Bison In 1905, Theodore Roosevelt helped save wild bison from extinction. Today, the Wildlife Conservation Society continues working to restore the bison population and protect their ecosystems. WCS also helps protect wild animals and wild places around the world, from tigers in India to coral reefs in Belize and wolverines in the Yellowstone Rockies. Donate in honor of a friend or family member. While you’re at it, cast your vote in this nonprofit’s campaign to make the American bison, North America’s largest land animal, our national mammal. $25 and up. 36 DECEmbEr 2012
