Trees for kids. Regardless of your religious beliefs, we can all get behind this. For a mere $50, you an provide enough fruit /citrus trees to a family in Uganda so that, once the trees grow up, they will be self-sufficient and able to feed their families. The East-African Outreach folks have partnered with a Ugandan tree company to provide trees, training on how to plant, care for, and harvest the fruit. The trees include some for harvesting for income and some for feeding the family. It's unbelievable you can get so much for just $50, but I know the people who run the program and I trust them implicitly.
The money is going for exactly what they say it is, and starving children are being fed and are learning to be independent.
My plan is to make my gift-giving and gift-getting occasions like Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, etc, reminders to invest in a Ugandan family. Go to the following link and select "Child Sponsorship Program," and it will take you to the donation page where to just fill in $50 and they will know what to do with it.
