I need to buy a present for my neighbour for Christmas. We usually buy her a nice box of chocolates or gardening stuff but this year I want to do something different. She mentioned that her sister and her mum and herself are donating money on behalf of each other to organisations. I thought that would be a great thing to do for her. So my question, does anyone know any organisations I can make a donation to that u possibly get some card (or similar) to say u donated to. I'm thinking something like tigers, turtles, orangutans? (That looks spelt wrong?! Lol)

Or if anyone can think of something nice I'm happy to take suggestions. I feel lame buying her the same sort of things each year.

I made a donation to Edgar's Mission, which is a sanctuary for farm animals. You can pay a one off amount to 'adopt' an animal. I think they start from $30 & range to about $80. Anyway you get a beautiful certificate plus a picture of the animal.
I love this charity Good luck
Other presents, what about a bottle of wine or chocolates or some home made biscuits?

Our favourite is the Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal. No pretty certificate (just a tax invoice) but you could make and print one yourself.
A few years ago we got family members donations on a website where they could choose for themself which of several charities it went to. Can't remember the name of it, but no doubt there's a few similar ones online.
