In case you might be searching for opportunities to do unto the least as unto our Lord through your gift giving this Christmas, four of my recent favorites-

- A great site and initiative, Alternative Gift Giving...

- The Salvation Army for Local Aid...

- And an amazing outreach to Orphans in Rwanda ...
