5 Charitable Last-Minute Gift Ideas For Valentine’s Day
  |  @   |  

Today is Valentine’s Day and I, for one, really enjoy this holiday. I feel that any day that celebrates love is a good day. But, I know there are many people out there who hate it, including those who scream about “corporate greed!” and feel it’s a holiday created by greeting card companies to guilt men into spending their hard-earned cash on overpriced cards, chocolates, flowers, and jewelry. Well, I can’t argue with you there, as it is a big cash-in day for many industries (you Capitalists should love that).

So, for those of you who don’t want to give your money to corporate fat-cats or go along with the obligatory overpriced flowers and candy routine, then here’s some last-minute charitable gifts you can give — because let’s face it, if you’ve been going on all year about how Valentine’s Day sucks, then most likely haven’t gotten your sweetie a gift yet. But hey, just because you’re a non-conformist who hates sappy holidays doesn’t mean you can’t show the love, too, and not just for your partner, but for anyone in your life you care about. And, wouldn’t giving to charity on Valentine’s Day be a nice finger in the face to materialism? Yeah, go for it!

Here’s our list of 5 Charitable Last-Minute Gift Ideas For Valentine’s Day.

Halloween 2011 Bat Sponsorship: Meet Mr. Kitty, A Bat Rescued By A Cat!
  |  @   |  

Every year, Geeks of Doom adopts a bat for Halloween and this year, our sponsored bat is Mr. Kitty, an injured bat that was rescued by a feral cat!

Mr. Kitty arrived at Bat World Sanctuary in Texas with a broken wing. Miss Kitty, a feral cat who lives in the sanctuary’s parking lot, found the injured bat and carried it in her mouth — without harming her rescue — and brought it to the caretakers at Bat World. Rehabilitators were able to repair Mr. Kitty’s wing, but not well enough to allow flight, so he’s now a permanent resident of Bat World Sanctuary’s indoor bat cave.

In honor of Halloween, consider Adopting A Bat from Bat World Sanctuary. There are several available for sponsorship, each with their own personalities and individual stories of triumph over adversity!
